In this blog the Power Trip Services team share how you can save up to 25% on your ducted air conditioning running costs.
If you’re concerned your ducted system is not running as efficiently as it could be, or your power bills are on the rise without reason – this one is for you!
Did you know heating and cooling your home can account for up to 40 per cent of your annual energy costs? And when your ducted system is on the way out those running costs are likely to blow out – meaning you could be hit with costly repairs, or unusually high energy bills.
Not to mention, a deteriorating ducted system will be impacting the comfort levels in your home too, with excessive noise and uneven heating and cooling common signs of demise.
Below we explain how upgrading your old ducted system could save you money.
Ducted Air Conditioning Running Cost
The R&D team from Daikin compared the average running costs of an old ducted system, which was released in 2000, to its current premium inverter system.
They had both systems running for identical periods of time and calculated the operating expense of each.
What they found was that replacing an old Daikin system with a new premium inverter system could save homeowners a staggering 25 per cent on running costs.
A significant improvement in energy efficiency and expenses can be linked to changes which have been possible thanks to advancements in technology.
Without getting too technical, here’s some of the notable changes and what they mean for you:
- Inverter Technology – allows the desired temperature to be reached faster. It also helps to maintain the home’s temperature.
- Predicted Mean Vote (PMV) Control – this measures indoor and outdoor temperatures to calculate an ideal room temp. The control then adjusts temperature to the optimum balance which boosts efficiency and comfort.
- Temperature Limit Operations – this reduces energy consumption because it allows you to predetermine the temperature range for both heating and cooling.
