Answers To All Your Queries

A brief overview of the most frequently asked questions about ducted evaporative air conditioning is provided below.

What is ducted air conditioning?

A ducted evaporative air conditioner consists of two units, an indoor unit, and an outdoor unit. A wall links these two units. In this system, hot air is extracted from the house, and cold air is compressed and sent all over the house using ductwork. The cold air absorbs heat from the room and is emitted out through vents.

Which are the main components of a ducted evaporative air conditioner?

It consists of the following main components:

  • Evaporator
  • Condenser
  • Compressor
  • Filter
  • Return air grille
  • Thermostat
  • Controller

How many windows or vents are needed to be kept open?

The hotter air must be released through a vent, door, or window since evaporative ducted systems do not have a convection system to do this. In this case, choosing the window farthest from the duct system is the most convenient solution. In addition, the area of the opening must be twice that of the vent.

Do you have any options for pre-cooling your apartment?

With an evaporative ducted system equipped with a delay timer, it is possible to pre-cool your place prior to arrival. It would require an open window to ventilate. In addition, security measures such as window grilles or screens will be necessary to keep out an intruder.

What are evaporative ducted conditioning zones?

Zone control is one of the features of modern systems. This gives greater control over the temperature in various zones. As the cooler air is released through ducts, it finds a convenient way to reach a window. It gives an advantage of doing experiments by keeping the door of another room open, thus allowing for air to move from room to room until it reaches the window, thus creating a comfortable atmosphere throughout.

Is Evaporative ducted AC a good choice for a semi-open area?

This system is the best fit for such an area, since refrigerated air conditioning would not be as good, as it relies only on-air circulation. Alternatively, the evaporative system utilizes air flow that produces fresh, cooler air regardless of the area type.

What is the evaporative reverse cycle?

With this feature, the system can cool or heat a home based on its needs. Through this technology, it is possible to reverse the cycle, which makes the condenser serve as an evaporator, thus pulling the cooler air in and providing a warm and cozy inside atmosphere.

What are the major benefits of an evaporative ducted system?

  • It is an economic system that saves you money.
  • It is convenient to install in all kinds of rooms.
  • The house is supplied with conditioned air.
  • The system doesn't make noise in comparison to the window AC.
