What is Add On Cooling?

Add On Cooling connects to your Gas Ducted Heater to give you year-round central heating & cooling

To achieve year-round comfort, the installation of an Add On cooling System may be the answer.

As the name suggests, Add On Cooling adds onto your existing compatible Gas Ducted Heating System and utilises the same ducts and vents.

Add On Cooling is Refrigerated, meaning it will cool the air to the temperature you select, regardless of the outside temperature. It utilizes electricity, benefiting those with solar panels.

Keep your entire home cosy in winter with Gas Ducted Heating and fresh in summer with Refrigerated Cooling.

Note: your existing Gas Ducted Heater model needs to be compatible with Add On Cooling. If you are not sure, if it is, our experienced staffs members will be able to help you.

It will use the same ducts and vents as your Gas Ducted Heater, this can either be in the ceiling or under floor dependent on your home.

However, please note in order to use your existing ducts, your ductwork must have an insulation rating of R1.5 and be sized correctly for both heating & cooling.

In order to determine which size Add On Cooler is required for your home, a member from our design team will need to carry out a Cooling Load Calcuation.

The calculation takes into consideration the size of the rooms required to be cooled, as well as the ceiling height.

Factors such as whether you want to cool the entire home at once, or utilize zoning also come into consideration.

Your Gas Ducted Heater must also be sized appropriatly to suit your Add On Cooler.

Add On Cooling Features

Refrigerated Cooling allows you to set your desired temperature, giving you complete steady control over your home’s climate.

That means if you set it to 20 degrees, it will cool to 20 degrees and maintain that temperature level.

This differs from Evaporative Cooling where you cannot set a target temperature.

Love the cosy warm feel of Gas Heating? Enjoy the best of both worlds with Gas Heating and Add On Cooling, both ducted throughout your home.

Zoning is great for saving money on running costs as you are only cooilng the rooms you currently need, plus its programmable, so it can automatically turn on and off at different periods.

For example, you might have your living areas as Zone A, which you cool during the day.

And bedrooms as Zone B which you cool during the night.
