Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioners in Adelaide
Cool and heat your home with Factory Direct Home Air. Reverse cycle air conditioners are the ultimate in home comfort. With both heating and cooling functions, ducted air conditioners allow every room in a home to be temperature controlled via the main unit. Motorised zones can be used to shut off sections as required, thus reducing energy consumption. We have domestic ducted reverse cycle air conditioning units available in an array of sizes in Adelaide, ranging from 7.1kW single phase up to 36kW three phase.
With many years experience in the air conditioning Adelaide industry, we can help you make the right choice for your home.
How ducted reverse cycle air conditioners work
Air is drawn up through a return grille that is centrally located in the house, and the same air is then supplied through vents located in the extremities of the rooms. This supply air is usually about 10 degrees cooler or warmer than the air sucked into the system.
Choosing the right ducted reverse cycle air conditioning system
Our experienced consultants in Adelaide, will perform a “heat load’ calculation on your home to determine your conditioning requirements. By using zoning to switch off areas of your home that aren’t being used at a particular point in time, we can use a smaller unit than would be required to heat or cool the whole house. The living areas (lounge, kitchen, family room, etc.) generally account for about two-thirds of the typical heat load requirement of a house.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q. Why not dispense with the zones and use a machine big enough to do the whole house?
A. The reason we use zoning is to save on electricity consumption. Bigger machines mean higher running costs and higher electricity bills.
Q. Why is reverse cycle better for cooling than evaporative systems?
A. Evaporative air conditioners do not work during high humidity, as the temperature of the air coming out of an evaporative system is related to the temperature of the air outside. Ducted reverse cycle systems recirculate the cooler air within the home so they can guarantee lower temperatures.
Q. Why don’t you put outlets in the entrance or passage areas of the house?
A. Because they do little to improve the effectiveness of the system. With passages, the flow of air from the serviced rooms are enough to provide heating and cooling to those areas. The reason they are often included on quotes is to up-sell and add to the price (and the salesperson’s commission).
Q. I have an older Adelaide home with lath and plaster ceilings. Will there be any additional costs?
A. To prevent damage to older style homes, we need to take that extra bit of care, and therefore, there is a small extra cost involved.
Q. My house is about to be built. Can I send you a plan and get a price?
A. Certainly – just fax or email your plan to us, and we will give you a price.
Q. My builder has offered to install an air conditioner. Will your company be any cheaper?
A. A lot of builders who offer air conditioning add their mark-up to the price. Therefore, by dealing directly with us, you will save money. Also, we are able to tailor a system to suit your exact requirements – not use a pre-designed system to suit the plan.
Q. I’ve heard that it is double the price to air condition a two-storey home compared to a single storey home in the same area. Is that true?
A. Provided allowances have been made in the design of the home, there is only a small extra cost. It is typically 10-20 percent more for a two-storey home.
Q. I am going to add an extension in the next few years. Should I wait until it is completed before installing an air conditioner?
A. We can design a system that allows for future expansion at a later date, giving you the benefits of air conditioning straight away.
Q. I’ve received a quote for a 12.5kW system – does it really use that much power?
A. The figure quoted is the output capacity of a unit – reverse cycle systems are very efficient, therefore a 12.5kW machine would only use around 5kW.
