Add On Cooling is when a cooling unit is added to your existing or newly purchased gas ducted heating system. The existing heating unit and the ducting must be cooling compatible (please note that most existing gas heating systems will not be compatible). Often a new heater and new ducting will be required for combined gas heating with a refrigerated add-on cooling system. Once installed however, it means both heating and cooling will be distributed through the same vents.
Add On Cooling as the name suggests is an extension / add on that is installed onto or with a Gas Ducted Heating system. It works by installing a condensing unit outside your home either on the roof or the side of your house.
A series of pipes then connects the condensing unit to a coil that is connected to the Gas Ducted Heating unit and your duct work. The coil then distributes warm and cool air, throughout your home depending on which system you decide to use.
Depending on the Add On Cooling unit installed will determine whether you will have 2 or 1 controllers used to operate the heating and cooling of your home.
Since gas ducted heating is Melbourne’s top choice in terms of heating options, and users of this system would also like to enjoy cooling options for the summer, an add-on cooler is the perfect solution to this problem.
As gas ducted heating is only applicable for your heating needs, an add on cooling system allows for your home to be both cooled and heated without the extra cost of having another duct system in your house (they use the same duct system).
The add-on cooling system is designed to use the same duct and grilles system as the heater which saves a lot of money and time installing the system.
Most gas ducted heating manufacturers produce systems that are capable of sustaining different temperatures in different rooms/areas of the house. This gives different users of the same house the benefit of having the a temperature to their liking. A Braemar heater is able to zone up to four different temperatures at once.
You have the choice to install the add-on cooler with your heater purchase or add it on whenever you feel like having it.
This is my second system that Coldflow have installed and I'm very happy with the result.
2 head air conditioning system installation was quick and tidy. Even though the cassettes are more complicated and involved to install. All the guys cleaned up after themselves and took all the rubbish away. Excellent service and workmanship, even when it rained and then heat (it's Melbourne).
System work a treat, just waiting for the heatwave to arrive. Great work by the team.
I was extremely happy with the service provided by Coldflow.
I had a ducted cooling system installed. The team turned up on time and completed the job the same day. The guys were courteous and completed the job with a minimum of fuss and disruption. The workmanship was excellent and all ducts were located as per our agreement. They placed drop sheets wherever required and cleaned up after completion. Again was very happy with the service provided by all the crew.
Replaced gas ducted unit. Installation was the perfect I have ever seen and the installers cleanup and did more than they were suppose to do. Customer service focused and really good company to work with. Have also got my cooling installed from them last year, so recommended already to friends and to anyone needing Heating and Cooling
From my first conversation with a consultant, I felt confident that Coldflow had the experience and knowledge I was looking for. I was thrilled with the level of customer service I received and follow up from them. The installers were professional and helpful and on time. I am very happy with the evaporative cooling unit we chose, thanks to the assistance and guidance of our consultant. I highly recommend Coldflow and would use them again.
Very good service. David the Sales consultant understood what i wanted with no pressure, and was patient. Installers were friendly. Had one one problem with controller, but they have back the next day and was promptly fixed. Thanks again
Thanks to Craig at Coldflow. He listened to me, about how cold and hot certain rooms were. Other companies just tried to sell me what they wanted. Very good service, very happy with my heating and cooling.
