Ducted air conditioning is a convenient and discreet option for cooling your home. You can control the climate in multiple rooms using a single system, with quiet operation and no bulky units taking up wall space.

Why choose ducted air conditioning?

If you're installing air conditioning in your home for the first time or replacing an older installation, ducted systems can be installed in most buildings.


Compared to other A/C options, ducted air conditioning is:

  • Discreet – Ducted systems are mostly hidden inside your ceiling and walls, with only the grilles being visible. They're also whisper-quiet, making them ideal for bedrooms and study areas.
  • Convenient – A ducted system can connect to as many rooms as you need it to, so you don't need to install individual units in different parts of your home. You can adjust temperatures and settings via remote control or smartphone apps, or set programmable timers.
  • Efficient – Modern air conditioners are designed for superior energy efficiency. Ducting enhances efficiency even further, so you'll save on electricity bills while keeping cool all year round.
  • Flexible – Ducted systems can provide both cooling and heating, keeping you comfortable in all seasons. When you choose a zoned system, you can set different temperatures in different parts of your home.

What are the different types of ducted systems?

We install and service all types of ducted air conditioners from the leading manufacturers. Our technicians will recommend the perfect fit for your home during your consultation.

Ducted evaporative cooling systems

Evaporative cooling is one of the most affordable and energy-efficient options for lowering temperatures and improving the air quality in your home. Unlike some other air conditioners, you can leave your windows and doors open to enjoy the fresh air as the natural breeze circulates through your rooms.

Ducted evaporative cooling uses fans to draw air from outside the home, which evaporates and cools as it passes over water-soaked pads. This means the air inside your home will be slightly moist and won't dry out your skin, while filters will block out pollen and other allergens.

Ducted refrigerated air conditioning

If you live in a more humid area, or you don't want to leave your doors and windows open, refrigerated air conditioning could be a more suitable option than evaporative cooling. Reverse cycle air conditioners can also provide heating in the colder months.

Refrigerated ducted systems lower humidity and circulate the air multiple times every hour. Filtration makes sure this air is pure and free from allergens.

Gas ducted heating

If you've already taken care of cooling, but you need to keep warm in the winter, ducted systems can also supply heat. We can install a reverse cycle air conditioner that can switch between warm and cool air or gas ducted central heating for rapid, energy-efficient heating.

Ducted systems distribute heat more evenly than room heaters, as they don't use radiant heat. Instead, air from conditioned space is recycled through filters and then heated as they pass over combustion tubes and blown back into the space. Filters block out contaminants, leaving your warm air fresh and pure.

Ducted Air Conditioning repairs, maintenance and service

If your Ducted Air Conditioning system develops a problem, you need to get it fixed as soon as possible. Not only may you have to endure uncomfortable temperatures, but your electricity bills could increase and mould and mildew could start to form now that the air's no longer being purified.

When you choose Maxim Air professionals to install your new Ducted Air Conditioning, you'll be covered by the manufacturer's warranty if anything goes wrong. Our technicians are licensed to clean, service and repair air conditioners, and we'll get your system back online as quickly as possible.
