At the end of a long and tiring day, everyone wants to come home to a cold room. The installation of air conditioning units in households is growing increasingly popular for the comfort that the cooled air circulation provides. Apart from efficient cooling systems, air conditioning units also bring better air circulation and possibly improved air quality.

Ducted air conditioning systems, in particular, are great choices for households for being easy to control and seamless in appearance. They are also known for their quiet operation and zoning flexibility, which means that they can be installed almost anywhere in your home.

Whatever reason you may have for wanting an air conditioner in your home, here are some things to keep in mind, as well as some ducted AC unit recommendations.

Things to Consider

Room Size

The first thing that you need to consider is the size of the room you want to cool down. This will determine many specifications of the air conditioner that you should be looking for, as well as help you determine which ducted air conditioning units will be appropriate for the room and the space available.

However, with ducted air conditioning systems, room size may not be as important as they are installed inside air ducts, as opposed to ductless air conditioning systems that occupy a space on your wall. Because of this, it's best to simply evaluate whether you have the necessary space available for ducted air conditioning.

Cooling Power

Another important consideration is the cooling capacity of the indoor unit. The cooling power indicates the speed and efficiency of a unit in terms of cooling a room individually, and this is usually measured in kilowatts (kW) in ducted air conditioning systems, with each 10 square meter needing around 1.25kW to 1.7kW.

You should also remember that a higher cooling power isn't always better as this can bring unnecessary stress to your air conditioning unit, as well as make a room too cold and bring discomfort to you.

Electrical Demand

Needless to say, buying a ducted air conditioner will increase the costs of your electrical bills as these units require electricity to function properly.

Installation Costs

As ducted air conditioning is typically installed within an existing space or existing ducts, there will be some installation costs involved. Though not as easy to install as ductless air conditioning systems, they are much easier than installing central air conditioners that have to be integrated across your entire home.
