What Is Gas Ducted Heating?

Many people choose to install a gas ducted heater as a heating solution for their home or office. Ducted heating takes the air in your home and heats it using gas. Then, the system blows the warm air through multiple ducts and vents installed in each room.

One big advantage of a ducted gas heater is that it eliminates the need for multiple wall-mounted heating units.

How Does Ducted Gas Heating Work?

A gas ducted heater uses one central heating unit to heat the air before distributing it to the zones you want to heat. The heating unit is normally installed on the roof or internally in the roof space.

The heating unit connects with the various rooms or areas through a system of ducts and vents which allows the fan to distribute the warm air throughout the property. The vents are normally mounted on the ceiling or in the floor.

A fan draws in the air which is then heated over a gas-powered heater. Another fan then circulates the warm air through the ducts and vents to heat the room.

The ducts are insulated to prevent heat loss. Your gas heater works on a continuous cycle, sucking in cooler air through the vents, reheating it, and then circulating the warm air throughout the rooms.

What are the benefits of a Gas Ducted Heating System?

Running Costs

In Australia, the cost of electricity is increasing faster than that of gas. So using natural gas to heat your home or office is a smart and cost-effective solution.

For an average house of 160m2, a gas ducted heating system with an energy rating of 6 stars will cost approximately $950 per year to run.**

A Gas ducted heater is an effective way to save money.

Efficient

A gas heater generates 66% fewer harmful emissions than electricity generated using coal-fired power plants.*

When the weather is very cold, reverse cycle heating/cooling systems become less efficient. A gas ducted heating system can maintain a comfortable temperature throughout your home, whatever the weather is like outside.

Gas ducted heaters are Energy Star rated, so the more stars it has, the more efficient the heater is. What is energy efficiency? It is a measure of how much of the gas used to heat the air is converted into heat. A high-efficiency rating means that close to 100% of the gas energy becomes heat that you can use in your home.
