Ducted Central Air Conditioner – Existing Homes

What Is It?

A ducted central air conditioner is an efficient cooling system that uses traditional ducts and vents throughout a home to distribute cool air.

How Does It Work?

A ducted central air conditioner cools a home by absorbing heat from the home using the indoor evaporator coil then moves the heat to the outdoor condenser coil to dissipate it.

What Is the Incentive?
