Many variables contribute to cooling or heating your home to your ideal temperature. With so many Brisbane ducted air conditioning installers it is easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure of who you can trust. As Brisbane’s air conditioning specialists, the team at Smarter Air & Electrical have seen it all before, and we’re confident we can find a cost-effective supply and install ducted aircon solution for you. 



Ducted air conditioning works by circulating cool or warm air throughout your home using a system of ducts. The airflow is created by a compressor condensing unit that sits outside of your house, attached to an inside fan coil unit that is found inside the roof cavity.

Whereas split system air conditioning requires a unit to be installed in each room, ducted air conditioning allows you to direct the flow of air to specific areas of your home from a single system.

Ducted systems are commonly called reverse cycle air conditioning units because they also warm your home during the cooler winter months. With ducted air con, you can enjoy complete climate control for your entire home.

Benefits of ducted system air conditioning:

  • Cool or heat your entire home
  • Increase the value of your home
  • One air conditioner system to service & maintain
  • Quiet & more energy efficient than conventional air conditioners
  • Filters the air your family breathes
  • Unobtrusive ceiling grilles options
Keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter with Smarter Air’s ducted air conditioning installation Brisbane.

What is the cost of Ducted Air conditioner
Installation in Brisbane?

Every ducted air conditioning system we install is custom designed by our Brisbane air conditioning experts to suit the unique needs of your household. This ensures it’s suitable for each household which keeps energy costs down and your enjoyment up! Our AC installation specialist will draw technical diagrams to maximise energy efficiency to provide you with a high quality yet affordable ducted air conditioning solution.

For example, a double storey home with a family of two adults and three children will likely require a higher capacity ducted air con system that can cool many rooms at once during the heat of the day. If two adults and one child occupied the same home, with occasional use of the guest room at night time, we could reduce the size of the air conditioner installation required to ensure maximum comfort, efficiency and affordability.

So what is the cost to supply & install ducted air conditioning in Brisbane? The below prices for ducted air conditioning installations can be used as a guide to help you decide if a ducted cooling system fits within your budget:

  • Small home: $9k-$10k
  • Average home: $10-14k
  • Large home: $14k+

When looking for the most cost-effective aircon installation Brisbane has on the market, there are two main factors to consider. These are the upfront cost for installation and also how energy efficient your heating and cooling system will be over time. This ensures that your home is both comfortable and economical to run.

While the initial ducted air conditioning cost may seem a little high compared to split system air conditioners, ducted air conditioner installation is an investment that will add value to your home. Make your family time more comfortable, enjoyable and valuable this summer with ducted air conditioning! Get in touch with our Brisbane air conditioning technicians today to discuss installing an air conditioner in your home.


1. Outdoor unit

Our ducted air conditioning installation experts will place the outdoor unit down the side of your home, so it is out of sight and out of mind! New inverter technology allows the outdoor unit to consume less energy, while at the same time providing greater comfort!

2.indoor unit

The indoor fan unit is the most significantly-sized piece of equipment that we need to install in your home (we place it in your roof, where space is quite commonly limited). Our ducted air conditioning installers are experts at finding solutions for even the most complex of homes.

3. zone control

Zone control options for ducted air conditioners range from simple on/off 6-zone systems, through to smart systems, like MyAir, with individual temperature control in every zone and smartphone control. Smarter Air’s Brisbane air conditioning installers are experts in zone control systems. Our team can help you choose a zone controller that will provide substantial energy savings all year round!

4. Flexible Duct

Flexible ducting system installed throughout your roof space delivers filtered cooled or heated air to each room almost silently. Smarter Air uses only high quality R1.0 insulated flexible duct from Advantage Air. Advantage Air manufacture their systems right here in Australia, from Australian materials, so you can rest assured that they are designed to meet our harsh climate! This ducted air con flexible duct comes with a 10-year warranty.

5. Exact Airs

These high quality fittings connect the ducts in your roof space to control how much air each room receives. Designed and engineered in Australia by Advantage Air, the Exact Airs enable you to adjust the airflow to any room in 5% increments. Thanks to better airflow control, your system will keep you more comfortable and increase your energy efficiency.

6. Outlets

Smarter Air has a range of ducted air conditioner air grilles available that will blend seamlessly with any home design, including linear grilles, bar grilles, 4-way directional grilles or standard round outlets. Speak to our Brisbane air conditioner installers today to find the perfect solution for your home design.




Our recommended grille is the square 4-way directional grille manufactured by our friends at Advantage Air.  These grilles offer good looks, excellent airflow and the ability to direct air in any direction you wish!

One of the most common ducted air con grilles used in Brisbane is the insulated round outlet. The reason for its popularity is the uniform, clean look it provides; the only downside is that you can’t control the direction of airflow.

Round Air Conditioning Grill


We use and recommend high quality Advantage Air Purtech return air conditioning grilles due to its clean aesthetic, no visible mitered joints and washable multi-layer electrostatic filter that results in up to 30% cleaner air.

Which brand of ducted air conditioning unit?

Smarter Air & Electrical can supply most air conditioning brands such as Mitsubishi Electric, Panasonic, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Daikin, Fujitsu, LG, Samsung, TECO & Hisense – we are not tied to any specific brand. Our entire range of air conditioning units offer reliability and energy efficiency that will result in savings on your electricity bill. Plus with competitive pricing, there’s a package suitable for everyone.

Our recommendation for the best ducted air conditioning systems would be Panasonic, who are the global leader in manufacturing high quality inverter technology air conditioning solutions for homes and businesses offering unsurpassed energy efficiency.

In the unlikely event that your air conditioner gives up the ghost during a summer heatwave, Panasonic is second to none in the after-sales service and warranty departments. We have personally found their after-sales service and warranty turnaround times to be the best in the industry. And the best part? All Panasonic air conditioners that are installed in residential homes come with a 5-year parts and labour warranty!

3 factors we consider when sizing your air conditioner

Smarter Air will help you find the right size for your Brisbane ducted air conditioner installation.

The most crucial factor that we need to consider when sizing your ducted air conditioner is how you would like to use it! For example, the way a young couple will use their system will vary significantly to the way a large family uses theirs! Overall, our goal is to make sure that you receive the perfect system to suit your lifestyle and budget keeping energy efficiency top of mind.

Floor area

The ceiling height and floor area of your rooms are the first steps to deciding the capacity required for efficient ducted air con systems and effective cooling or heating.


Insulation in your walls & ceiling, or lack thereof, will also affect the capacity required. Insulated areas retain heat in winter and repel heat in summer. Ensuring you install adequate insulation when building your home will reduce the workload of your air conditioner, resulting in reduced cooling & heating costs.


The size and orientation of any windows in the room are also an important consideration. Similar to insulation, having window tint plus thick curtains or blinds on windows will help to increase the efficiency of your air conditioning unit. The orientation of your windows can also drastically affect the temperature in any given room throughout the day. Our Brisbane ducted air conditioning installers will factor room orientation in when designing your new air conditioning system!



Adding an air conditioner zone controller to your ducted system will have a significant positive impact on the running cost of your air conditioning for years to come. The reason for this is two-fold:

Energy efficient ducted air conditioning installation from Smarter Air.


Zoning allows you to split your home into different areas (or “zones”), and to close off airflow to unoccupied rooms. Turning OFF empty zones will deliver more air to zones that need it, so they will reach your desired temperature sooner. Turning OFF zones that are unoccupied results in greater comfort and lower costs to cool or heat your home – We all love saving money on our power bills!


Ducted air conditioners typically sense the temperature from the return air grille usually found in your hallway, which is great if you spend your day in the hall! With optional individual temperature sensors, MyAir allows you to choose which zone of your home is the set point for the system. This prevents the unit from overcooling or overheating areas so that it can cater to your desired comfort level.

Not sure what type of aircon installation you need in your Brisbane home? Knowing how many rooms you need to cool or heat can help you decide which system is right for you. For one to two rooms, you may consider a split system air conditioner. For two to four rooms, a multi-split air conditioner might be the best solution. And, for a large family home, ducted air conditioners are best suited due to their large capacity, smart control options and individual temperature control in each room.

Regardless of size, ducted air conditioning units are becoming a standard inclusion in many new homes. This is because they can cool or heat multiple rooms, the installation is cost-effective, and they are energy-efficient to run.

At Smarter Air & Electrical, we are always on the lookout for innovative solutions to help save homeowners money. This is why every ducted aircon system we install is custom designed by our air conditioning specialists.
