Whether you're after a wall mounted unit for your bedroom or a ducted system for your family home, our suppliers, Fujitsu General, have a Heat Pump / Air Conditioning system to suit your heating and cooling needs. We can advise you on the best product(s) for your home or project and have experienced electricians standing by to provide you with a smooth installation and optimum end result.
Ranging from traditional wall mounted units to ceiling and floor consoles, there’s an energy efficient single room Fujitsu Heat Pump / Air Conditioner to suit any room or space.
A multi system is ideal when individual units are required in more than one room and when a traditional ducted system may not be suitable. Multi systems can cool or heat multiple rooms using just one compact outdoor unit and up to six indoor units can be connected.
Fujitsu General’s ducted heat pump / air conditioning systems provide whole home comfort backed by a 6 year parts and labour warranty when you book with Leishman Electrical as we are a Fujitsu Accredited Installer. Using a single system concealed in the ceiling, it’s quiet, easy-to-operate and energy efficient, designed to heat or cool multiple rooms or the entire home using optional zone control.
Heat pump / air conditioners run best when the system is designed and installed correctly, ensuring the right balance of airflow throughout the home. This provides the complete solution that ensures the entire home, or specific rooms with zone control, will be comfortable at any time of day or night.
Ducted heat pump / air conditioning allows for the home to be divided into separate areas, or ‘zones’. Zoning will allow you to have greater control over the airflow around the home and provides flexibility to use your system to suit your living arrangements and lifestyle. Depending on the air conditioning system, you can select which zones are on or off, or with advanced controllers select different temperatures for specific zones at the same time. This can improve energy efficiency and deliver superior comfort.
Your home design is the most crucial element to examine when determining zones. Look for parts of the home that might have significantly higher or lower loads than other parts. Hot air rises, so if you have a multi-story home, separate zones should be used for separate floors. Rooms with lots of windows or large doorways will also likely need separate zones.
Rooms that are used for different functions or at different times of the day should be zoned separately. Bedrooms and living areas should be separate zones, as bedrooms are used mostly in the morning and night, whereas living areas are used during the day and evening. Typically, most homes will have separate zones for the master suite, other regularly used bedrooms, and the living areas.
Make sure you factor in the outdoor temperature or sunlight that penetrates a room or zone through windows or skylights. Basements and subterranean rooms are insulated and tend to be much cooler, whereas attics are much hotter. Ensure that sun-facing rooms and shaded ones are separated into different zones, since rooms that face the sun absorb more heat.
It is common for a zone to contain more than one room, for example a living area may include a kitchen and dining area. However, only do so if there is open connection or doorways between the rooms. The more open the rooms are to other rooms within a zone, the more resilient the zone will be to imbalances in heating and cooling loads.
The constant zone is an area that is always supplied air while the system is running. Having a constant zone provides somewhere consistent for the heat pump / air conditioner to operate and ensure all zones are not closed at once, allowing your installer to correctly balance the unit. The main living area is commonly used as the constant zone as it is occupied the most throughout the day.
