This can cause a reduction in air flow and air velocity which will impact on the performance of the system and cause an increase in running costs, energy use and reduce your comfort level.
Your ducted air conditioning system may have been sized incorrectly due to poor design or to reduce the installation costs.
Unless the design of the system is perfectly matched to the calculated heat load, you will end up with a poorly performing system that will allow only parts of the house to be properly conditioned during peak loads or perhaps none at all, depending on the way the system has been designed and installed.
So what is the Solution?
When having your system updated ensure that you use only qualified, experienced companies that understand design principals and ensure their staff is trained in all aspects of domestic air conditioning.
Retrofitting (Replacing) part of or the entire flexible duct, zoning and fittings with high quality products and design will help to increase the overall system capacity of your air conditioner due to the lack of wastage (problem 1) .
You may need to increase the amount of zones so you can close down areas of the house and increase your flexibility during peak loads. If the system is still too small for the job you may need to replace your system with a correctly sized air conditioning unit.
