Room or ducted air – what’s the difference?

Room air conditioning refers to a split system comprised of two separate units – an outdoor unit that is placed in an area with plenty of airflow and an indoor unit that is fixed inside the home. Ducted systems have an outdoor unit and a concealed indoor unit, and deliver air through ducting pipes (usually in the ceiling) into each room via vents on the floor, wall or ceiling.


Our-award winning ECONAVI and Inverter room air conditioners promote energy efficiency without sacrificing comfort and convenience, by applying high-precision sensor and control technologies to optimise heating and cooling operations from room to room. Affordable and easy to install, these wall split systems are mounted high on the wall and provide efficient heating/cooling as air sinks through the room. Wall splits are designed to heat/cool one room and are comprised of an indoor fan coil unit and an outdoor condenser.

There’s an app for that: Panasonic Sizing Wizard

We offer a range of ducted air conditioning solutions for homes and medium-sized buildings such as offices and restaurants. Consisting of an outdoor unit and a concealed indoor unit, these systems deliver air through pipes (usually in the ceiling) into each room via ducted or cassette vents. These systems look very discreet and have been designed with flexibility in mind, which is extremely helpful when designing a system for your home, and also makes installation much easier. Both the indoor and outdoor unit are compact and lightweight, making them easy to transport, and easy to install. With easy to use controls, settings like on/off, temperature adjustment, operation mode and fan speed adjustment are all at your fingertips. Each system also allows detailed settlings like weekly timers, plus your air conditioner can easily be zoned by your installer to allow complete choice over which rooms you heat or cool.
