Different types of systems
You’ve probably heard various climate control solutions referred to as ‘ducted air conditioning’ or ‘split system air conditioning’.
But did you know that most air conditioning systems actually double as heating systems, too?
This feature is known as reverse cycle technology, and as the name suggests, means that one single system can both heat during winter and cool during the summer.
Below, we break down some of the most popular heating and cooling systems on the market, as well as the technology behind them, that enhance these systems to deliver you optimum heating and cooling, every single day of the year.
Types of systems
Ducted reverse cycle air conditioning
Ducted reverse cycle air conditioning offers unparalleled power and coverage, allowing you to thoroughly and evenly heat or cool your home – all from a central thermostat.
Combine this with the power of reverse cycle technology, and it’s little wonder that ducted reverse cycle systems are the system of choice for many luxury homes throughout Melbourne.
Alpha Air are ducted heating and cooling experts. We’ve refined our processes to the point where we can install a complete ducted system in a single day – a process that traditionally can take upwards of a week!
Refrigerated cooling is able to remove heat from the air in your home. As refrigerant evaporates, it sucks heat out of the air before pumping it back into your home, progressively cooling your house.
This type of system offers powerful cooling – best of all, when this process is reversed, it produces warm air and keeps the temperature up during winter!
Ducted refrigerated air conditioning also uses inverter technology – this means that the system will gently increase or decrease power to reach your desired temperature quicker.
The result? Steady, comfortable temperature without fluctuations.
Combining an indoor unit and an outdoor condenser, split system reverse cycle systems are an affordable option, and a great option for those small homes and those who only need to heat or cool a single room.
While we may be ducted air conditioning experts first and foremost, our range also includes a wide range of split system options, such as multi-head split systems and bulkhead systems.
Gas ducted heating
One of the most efficient ways to heat your entire home is with a gas ducted heating system.
Gas ducted heating (also known as central heating) offers efficient and powerful heating, keeping you warm throughout even the chilliest Melbourne winters.
Gas ducted systems work quickly to reach comfortable temperatures, reducing your consumption. As a result, you can enjoy lower energy bills. Even when the temperature really drops, your system continues working optimally to keep your home warm!
Operation is whisper-quiet and will keep your family cosy during bitterly cold winters.
