I’m trying to decide which ducted system to choose for our new house being built in Melbourne.
It’s a large double story house, 41 squares (381sqm) of living space.
I’ve narrowed it down to two systems, Actron or Daikin.
Actron Air ESP Platinum Que 21kw 3 phase
1 que touch controller
5 que sensors (in each other zone)
Daikin premium inverter 24kw 3 phase
MyAir zone controller by advantage air
10 zones each with temperature sensors
1 main touch screen controller
I like and dislike things about both systems, and having trouble deciding.
Being such a large house I’m concerned about having enough power to heat and cool the house effectively. Neither system is large enough to do the whole house, but that’s ok as we’ll be running it zoned.
I like that with Daikin / MyAir we have 10 zones with temperature sensors, so every room can have it’s own desired temperature set.
I like that you can control the airflow to each zone. For example if one room gets too much air, you can adjust the airflow to that one room via the controller.
The Daikin has more heating power than the Actron.
I like the Actron because the controller and zoning system are all made by the same company and if anything goes wrong, they can trouble shoot better and won’t get the run around with each company blaming the other.
I like the Actron controllers better and think the interface is much better.
I like that you can turn the system on and off from each zone via the wall controller – whereas with MyAir you can’t.
I like that we can have a cheaper scaled down secondary controller in the master bedroom to control the whole system, whereas with MyAir we have to have another full controller which cost $800.
I don’t like that we can only have 6 zones and therefore multiple rooms would need to be combined into one zone. I’d prefer to have each room zoned separately so we can control the temperature individually.
Actron can handle 8 zones – which would suffice, but I’ve been told that it can’t handle 8inch ducts / smaller rooms – therefore we’re limited to 6 zones.
The Daikin / MyAir system is around $2k cheaper.
$2k is a lot, but it’s not a key point as I’d rather get the right system.
Can anyone shed some light as to which system is better? Help me decide
