What is Ducted Gas Heating?

Gas Ducted Heating is a method of heating your house through the distribution of warm air via a system of ducts either built into the floor or roof of your home. Depending on whether your house has a concrete slap for the foundation will generally determine whether the ducts are built in to the roof or floor. The only part you can see of the ducted system is the vents that act as the exit for your beautifully warm air.

How does Gas Ducted Heating work?

Gas Ducted Heaters use a fan to draw in air from outside and then pass the air over a heat exchanger to warm it. A return air vent then recirculates air to the furnace, beginning the whole cycle once again. The gas furnace is generally installed in the roof space or outside along the walls of your home. It can also be installed under the floor or even in cupboards if the space permits

Ductwork (which is connected to the heater/furnace) dispenses the heated air throughout the home, and is usually placed in the ceiling space or under the floor of the house.

The vents can be situated in the floor, ceiling, or sometimes the wall. These vents are the outlets for the ductwork that allows the warm air to be distributed throughout the home. Heating outlets are most effective when placed around the perimeter of your house, allowing the heated air to flow evenly throughout the space and warm your entire home.

What Sized Gas Ducted Heating System Should I Get?

There is a range of different sized systems in order to suit the size of your particular house. Our recommendation is that for each one square meter of your home that you wish to have access to the ducted system, you should dedicate 1kw of your systems power.
For larger home’s it is suggested that you zone off sections of your house to help you further reduce your running costs. This means you can determine which specific areas of your home will receive heat, to prevent wasted heat in other rooms.
