Can you upgrade ducted air conditioning?

The answer is yes!

Investing in ducted air conditioning is a great idea if you want to stay comfortable in your home.

As technology advances and energy efficiency standards improve, you’ll probably want to upgrade your air conditioning to remain efficient.

We’ll discuss what you need to look for in a ducted air conditioning system, reasons to upgrade, and factors to consider.


Why Upgrade Your Ducted Air Conditioning System?

Upgrading your ducted air conditioning system can bring numerous benefits to your home and wallet. Let’s explore three key advantages.

Energy Efficiency

The first reason to upgrade your ducted air conditioning system is to improve energy efficiency. With new air conditioner models, you can expect less energy consumption and the same comfort level. Doing so results in lower energy bills and reducing your carbon footprint.

Enhanced Comfort

An upgraded air conditioning system will likely have variable-speed compressors and fan motors, providing better temperature and humidity control. These features allow the system to operate more quietly and maintain a consistent temperature throughout your home.


Factors to Consider Before Upgrading

Considering the following factors before upgrading your ducted air conditioning system would be best.

Age of the Existing System

The age of your current air conditioning system is critical in assessing if an update is worthwhile. If your system is more than 10-15 years old, a newer, more energy-efficient model is likely to bring considerable benefits.

Capacity and Size

Upgrading your air conditioning system provides an opportunity to reassess the capacity and size of the unit.If your current system is too big or too small for your house, it might lead to higher energy bills and less comfort.


Your budget is another essential factor when upgrading your ducted air conditioning system. While investing in a high-efficiency system can save you money in the long run, you must balance the upfront costs with the potential savings.

Upgrading the Thermostat

Upgrading to a smart thermostat can significantly enhance your system’s performance.

With ActronAir’s newer systems, such as NEO, you can have a base control or an upgrade. The NEO thermostat brings advanced capabilities such as weekly schedules, countdown timers, and an away mode, allowing you to customise your comfort settings throughout the week effortlessly. 

Upgrading the Ductwork

Old or damaged ductwork can reduce the efficiency of your air conditioning and heating system and negatively impact indoor air quality. Upgrading your ductwork ensures that cooled air in summer and heated air in winter is distributed evenly throughout your home, reducing energy waste and improving comfort. 

Whether you live in a hot or cold climate, upgrading your ductwork can significantly benefit cooling and heating your home effectively. 

Adding Zoning Controls

Zoning controls allow you to divide your home into separate areas, each with its own temperature settings. By targeting specific areas for heating and cooling, you can reduce energy consumption and increase comfort for occupants.

Choosing the Right HVAC Professional

Working with a knowledgeable and experienced heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) professional is essential when upgrading your ducted air conditioning system.

They can assess your current system, recommend appropriate upgrades, and install new components and features to optimise performance.
