Why Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning

A ducted reverse cycle system is perhaps your best choice when selecting an appropriate air conditioning unit.

Starting points

There are no shortcuts involved in ducted reverse cycle air conditioners. Consult a knowledgeable technician on factors that define aspects like layout, design, and size of the unit.

What is the meaning of reverse cycle?

Air conditioning units operate on a heat pump principle. A fan pulls warm air from your room through a refrigerant, cooling down the air by absorbing heat. The chilled air is pushed back to the room.

The refrigerant evaporates on absorbing the hot air and funnels into a compressor, where it converts into a highly pressurised gas. This gas passes via an external heat exchanger in which heat escapes allowing the coolant to liquefy and cool. The refrigerant then flows through a low-pressure expansion unit in which it cools further and becomes ready for absorbing heat.

Selecting an ideal system

Here are some helpful tips you should consider before settling for a ducted reverse cycle air conditioning unit for your abode:

• Your floor plan including the room dimensions, ceiling height, as well as the number of levels.
• Layout, positioning, and size of your doors as well as and windows.
• Levels of insulation.
• Number of occupants.
