Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning

Who wouldn’t want to live in Australia? A lot of people fail to appreciate just how fantastic this country is, particularly when it comes to the weather. Our temperate climate on the south coast of the country can get really hot in the summer, and pretty cold in the winter, but most people wouldn’t trade that sort of weather for anything. Of course, if you are inside, it can get a little bit uncomfortable during the hottest or the coldest days of the year. Thankfully, with QuickAir’s ducted reverse cycle air conditioner installations, you can always feel nice and comfortable indoors, no matter the weather.

Since our climate is always hopping between beautifully hot days and tragically cold ones, a normal air conditioner won’t do. If you want to cover yourself for all of the nuances of the Australian climate, then you need to get your hands on a ducted reverse cycle air conditioner from QuickAir. This works in two ways. On the hot days, you will be able to cool yourself down, and when it gets cold? You flip a switch and it will warm you up. All in a single unit. No need to buy a separate heater. That’s the beauty of QuickAir’s ducted reverse cycle installation service.

The ducted air conditioner unit will sit outside of your home (don’t worry, it is going to be discrete). Air will be pumped through the various ducts in the system. As it does, the air will either be heated up or cooled down. This air will then be pumped out of the ducts through a series of vents. Control the temperature with your wall-mounted control system, and you can have the perfect temperature inside at all times. And if you ever run into any issues, QuickAir’s ducted reverse cycle repair and maintenance services are always here to ensure your system runs smoothly year-round.


Let’s take a little bit more of an in-depth look at the benefits of this type of air conditioner.


  1. Keeps you warm when it is cold outside

A standard air conditioner is a fantastic contraption. However, it has one glaring issue. This is the fact that it can only cool your air down. This means that you need to purchase a separate heater if you want to keep warm. This can be costly, and it means double the amount of equipment you need to maintain. With a ducted reverse cycle air conditioner, everything can be done with a single unit.

Ducted reverse cycle air conditioners work slightly differently to your conventional heater. With a conventional heater, there needs to be a heat source in there. This could be a heating element, or there may be some heated water. This isn’t the case with a ducted reverse cycle air conditioner. In fact, it works in exactly the same way as a normal air conditioner, just in reverse.

We won’t go into the science behind it all. However, all you really need to know is that there is a gas, known as a refrigerant, in an air conditioner. This gas is pumped through coils in the outdoor part of the air conditioner. As it does this, heat will be taken from the outside air. This gas will then be pumped into a compressor which, in turn, pumps it out through a fan coil unit. It is a very efficient system, and it doesn’t matter how cold it gets outside, your ducted cycle air conditioner will always work.


  1. Keep you cool when it is hot outside

If you want to stay cool, then all you need to do is adjust the desired temperature on your air conditioner. This will reverse the way in which the unit works. However, instead of extracting heat from the outside of your home, it will take it from the air inside your home and escort it outside.

As we said before; this functionality is fantastic, because it means you can cater to Australia’s ever-changing climate all from the same control panel and with the same unit. Since you live here, you probably know just how important this is. You never know what the temperature is going to be. You could have the hottest day one day, and it could be dreadfully cold the next. At least with a ducted reverse cycle air conditioner, you will be covered for every eventuality.


  1. They are very efficient

On the Southern shores of Australia, it is uncomfortable to be inside a home or office for too long without some sort of heating or cooling system. So, since you are going to need to purchase both eventually, why not just roll everything into the same unit? You are going to get a ton of use out of it. It is often a lot cheaper than purchasing an air conditioner and heating system separately. They will last a lot longer, and the running costs are a lot lower (when you factor in maintenance and energy consumption).

If you want to find out more about the way in which having a ducted reverse cycle air conditioner can help you save money on your power bills, then get in touch with us. We would love to help you out! Remember; the energy consumption for a ducted reverse cycle air conditioner will be highly dependent on the unit that you are purchasing, and since companies are always changing up their systems to be more ‘energy-efficient’, talking to us is probably the best way to get information about all of this. We can even provide recommendations on the right reverse cycle air conditioner for your home or business.


  1. More Efficient Than Portable Heaters

One of the problems with a portable heater is that they are energy inefficient. Yes, they are cheap to buy, but they are just not going to be that good. This is because portable mini heaters haven’t got a ton of technology packed into them. They will, mostly, be a heating element. This heating element will be lacking power.

A small portable heater would really struggle to heat up a room. This is before you even factor in the fact that heat dispersal is not going to be that great, so even if it does heat up the room, the temperature is going to be quite uneven. Not to mention the fact that your standard portable heater is quite dangerous. They can cause fires. Do not buy a portable heater unless you absolutely need to and, even then, we still wouldn’t recommend them.


  1. Ducted reverse cycle air conditioning will purify the air

It is worth noting that this is not a feature that you will be able to enjoy with all air conditioners. If you want ducted reverse cycle air conditioning that can purify the air, then ask us for recommendations!

In Australia, there is a lot of dust and smoke floating through the air sometimes. If you do not have a system that is actively removing dust and smoke from the environment, then you are going to be breathing it in. If you opt for a ducted air conditioner that can purify the air, then it will be able to suck out all of these contaminants, or at least most of them, which can make the air much cleaner to breathe. It really can help to combat certain health issues. This is actually important because Australia has a huge number of people suffering from asthma and other allergies.

A lot of more modern systems even go beyond merely removing dust and smoke from the environment. Some can combat bacteria and viruses. Others can even help to remove foul odours from the environment.


  1. Better for the Environment

Generally speaking, ducted reverse cycle air conditioning tends to be a lot better for the environment. This is especially true when you consider the number of raw materials and energy consumption a system like this consumes in comparison to the alternatives. The best part is that reverse cycle air conditioners are getting better all the time. If you want to do a direct comparison between the energy consumption of different units, then look for the energy star rating. The better the rating, the better the unit is for the environment.
