Five Advantages of Ducted Heating

In Victoria, one of the most common forms of heating the whole home is through gas ducted heating.
Affordable, efficient and effective, gas ducted heating means you don’t have to walk out of a warmroom into a cold one.


So what is ducted heating and what are the top five advantages of ducted heating?

Ducted heating is one of the most common heating systems that provides warmth to the entire house. Ducted central heating is designed to draw air inside your home through a return air grille, this air is then passed over a heat exchanger, warmed by gas combustion.

Once the air has been heated from the main unit, it is pushed through the ducts into the home via a series of vents in the ceiling or floor.

Here are five great benefits that will have you switching to ducted heating immediately.

#1 – Whole home comfort

Ducted systems can be installed in a new home, or tailored to suit an existing one. They only consist of an indoor unit (in ceilling) or outdoor unit (outside or underfloor) and flexible ducting. Once the system is installed you will be able to tailor the perfect level of comfort for your entire home from one control panel, providing comfort and warmth wherever it is needed.

#2 – Efficiency

With most gas ducted heating manufactures making highly efficient 4, 5, 6 and now even 7 star heaters, the cost of running a ducted heating system has significantly decreased, without comprising the heat ouput.

#3 – Even Air Distribution

Once air has been heated it is pushed through ducts and into the home via a series of vents in the ceiling or floor. This ensures that warm air is evenly distributed throughout the entire home, meaning there are no cold spots in your home.

#4 – Easy Control

Ducted heating systems are controlled from a central control panel that can be located in one of the main rooms in your home. This means you can increase or decrease the temperature of your home at the touch of a button on the control panel.

Control panels can also be zoned, allowing you to easily designate which rooms you would like to heat, and which you don’t.

#5 – Aesthetically Pleasing

With only unobtrusive grilles mounted in the ceiling or floor visible, ducted heating systems don’t intrude into the overall look of your home. In addition ducted heating is one of the quietest of all heating options.
