All ducting is not created equal. Our common standard used ducting is R1.0 energey efficiency ducting with high density polyester lining and stainless steel spring inner coil for added strength and shape retention. The result of all this engineering meets Australian strength, mould, temperature and fire standards. To further increase your overall systems performance and efficiency you can upgrade your systems ducting to R1.5 rated ducting which allows less cold air to escape. This usually costs about $250- $350 per house.
Zones are mechanical components within the ducting system that allows air conditioning to directed to certain rooms while the others won’t receive cooling. Zones are fantastic and the price you pay for them initially will pay it self off in a very short time. The reason for this is because your air conditioning unit do not need to run at full power all the time. In turn, allowing less consumption of electricity.
