Have you considered getting a new ducted air conditioning system installed in your home?

Your ducted air conditioning design is one of the most important stages of installation; this involves considering a number of factors to determine the correct size of air conditioning system for your home. Every system has to be custom designed for your home, so no two systems are the same. Our technicians work closely with you to carefully plan every stage of your installation and ensure that it maximises safety, efficiency and aesthetics.

According to Choice, the overall design of a ducted system is often as important as the air conditioner unit brand itself.

We take ducted air conditioning design seriously at Smarter Air. co-founder and installation master Phill was previously a web and graphic designer before discovering a passion for air conditioning. During his career as an air conditioning professional, he gained a diploma in graphic design to assist in drawing technical diagrams. Having the ability to draw technical layout drawings unique to your home a major advantage you won’t get elsewhere.

Once we’ve conducted a comprehensive assessment of your property, locating the most suitable place for your new system, we install one of our industry-leading brands. We partner with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Mitsubishi Electric, LG, TECO, Panasonic, Samsung, Fujitsu, Hisense, Rinnai, Daikin and MyPlace by Advantage Air to offer a diverse selection of the best air conditioner systems on the market.

We also consider where to place equipment like ceiling grilles and ductwork in the roof space — this can vary depending on the size of the home.

Factors To Consider During Design Planning

Floor Area

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


Insulation in your walls and 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 important considerations. 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. We factor in room orientation when making the design to make the most of this.

Ducted Air Conditioning Cost

The all-important question — what will it cost? Whilst ducted may have a higher price than, split, you definitely get much more bang for your buck.

Ducted Air Conditioning provides both cooling and heating so you can enjoy the perfect temperature in your home all year round. For sub-tropical areas like South East Queensland, it’s a fantastic way to get through those melting summers and chilly winters.

This is a guide to pricing, but installation costs will vary depending on the house.


  • For small homes, the cost is between $8000 to $11,000.
  • For average homes (approx. 235.8m2), the cost is between $11,000 to 15,000.
  • For large homes, the cost can be anywhere from $15,000+
