Are you tired of constantly adjusting the temperature in your home to accommodate everyone’s preferences? Do certain areas of your house feel too hot or too cold, while others remain comfortable? If so, zoned cooling and heating with ducted system air conditioning could be the solution you’re looking for.

At Coastal Air Conditioning, we know that achieving optimal comfort throughout the entire living space can be a challenge. Traditional HVAC systems treat the whole house as a single zone, leading to inconsistencies in temperature and energy wastage. Zoned cooling and heating with ducted air conditioning offer a smarter way to control the climate in different areas of your home, providing personalised comfort and energy efficiency.

What is Ducted System Air Conditioning?

Ducted air conditioning is a centralised cooling and heating system that operates through a network of vents installed in the ceiling or floor. It allows for the regulation of temperature throughout the entire home.

How Does Zoned Cooling and Heating Work?

Zoned cooling and heating systems utilise ductwork to control the airflow to different zones. Each zone has its own thermostat, which communicates with the main control panel. When a specific location requires heating or cooling, the AC adjusts accordingly to direct conditioned air to that area. This precise control ensures that each zone receives the desired temperature.

Benefits of Zoned Cooling and Heating

Personalised Comfort
With zoned cooling and heating, you can customise the temperature in each zone to suit individual preferences. This is particularly beneficial for multi-story homes or homes with large open spaces where temperature variations are common.

Energy Efficiency
Zoned systems eliminate energy waste associated with traditional HVAC systems by only conditioning the zones that require cooling or heating. You can reduce energy consumption and lower utility bills while maintaining optimal comfort.

Enhanced Comfort and Air Quality
Zoned systems ensure consistent comfort throughout your home by eliminating hot and cold spots. 

Choosing the Right Zoned Ducted System Air Conditioning Unit

Capacity and Size Considerations
When selecting a zoned ducted air conditioning system, it is crucial to consider the size and capacity that align with the cooling and heating needs of the home. Oversized or undersized systems can lead to inefficiencies and reduced comfort levels.

Energy Efficiency Ratings
Energy efficiency ratings, such as Energy Rating Label, should be considered to ensure the system operates efficiently and minimises energy consumption.
