What is ducted gas heating?
Ducted gas heating is an excellent option to evenly heat your home. With all the benefits of even heat distribution throughout the rooms it is used in, cost-effectiveness and versatility it is also environmentally friendly and will keep running even if the electricity goes out.
A ducted gas heating system has a heating unit that is often installed in the roof space or outside your home and which funnels the warm air through heating ducts and out into the rooms of your house. The heating vents can be installed in the floor or in the ceiling. The air in the room passes back through return grills and is then rewarmed by the heating unit and recirculated into the house.
With ducted gas heating, you can warm the whole house with just one system. But you don’t have to. If the system has zone control connected and you are not using one or more of the rooms, you can turn the system off in that part of the house. This amounts to energy and cost savings.
Likewise, ducted gas heating runs on natural gas which is a more economical fuel and results in further cost savings on your energy bill. Depending on the star rating of your system, you could save up to 30% on your energy bill.
Unlike using a gas heater, ducted gas heating is installed such that it keeps an even temperature across the whole room in which it is working. There are no cold spots where it feels like the heating isn’t on. The system is composed of variable speed fans that control the air flow and keep the rooms toasty.
