Reverse Cycle Ducted Air Conditioning
The most energy efficient form of heating for your home is reverse cycle ducted air conditioning. It will keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. You set the temperature controls to automatically turn the heating or cooling on or off. An in built timer temperature controller allows you to control start and stop times. Prices vary according to the brand you select.
How Reverse Cycle Ducted Air Conditioning Works
How it Works. A reversing valve redirects the refrigerant flow from the outdoor unit to the indoor unit giving you the heat to keep you warm in winter. This means that the outdoor condensing unit becomes cold and the indoor fan coil becomes hot.
Heat from the outside ambient air is absorbed by the refrigerant through heat transfer across the condenser unit. this heat is then transferred to the indoor unit where the indoor fan blows the heat in the indoor coils through out you home.
This is the basic principle of reverse cycle ducted air conditioning.

Central Duct Heating
What this means is that ducting is used to transfer heat to various areas of the home. Air grilles are installed to diffuse the air evenly so as to optimise the distribution of airflow.
The heat cycle can be divided by zone dampers which diverts the airflow from one area of the house to another. Reverse cycle ducted air conditioning uses invertor technology to further save you money on your electricity by varying the speed of the compressor thereby reducing the amount of energy consumed.
Air Distribution is even and uniform. Thereby quickly heating each room with an even temperature. Air Ducts must always have balancing dampers installed for optimal efficiency.
