Refrigerated cooling systems use a central unit, so you’re able to control the temperature of your entire house or office space. Ducted cooling makes adjusting to drastic weather changes easy, so everyone stays comfortable through Summer’s unpredictable heat.

Homes and businesses don’t have to miss out on cooling systems when they have a ducted gas heater. Add-on cooling is an efficient solution for those who want year round comfort.

“I had a few people coming from different companies to quote on the replacement of my mum's existing ducted heating system. I must say that Australian Climate systems sales who came to us was the most knowledgeable and he strongly recommended that we have the air return grille changed as per standard which the previous sales who came to my mum's premise didn't mention at all. Their installation worker came on schedule and worked with high efficiency. Satisfied customer.”
