GAS DUCTED HEATING
“Warm the whole house in minutes”
Why Ducted Heating
Ducted gas heating is affordable to install & simple to use. It is the most common form of whole home heating solutions in Victoria because of its affordability and capacity to heat the space quickly.
What is it?
A central heating solution for the whole house generally run on natural gas (though can be installed on LPG as well). Insulated ducts are installed & positioned throughout the house which distribute warm air from the heating appliance to all the rooms with a heating register. Ducted heating can be zoned and each zone can have its own temperature control.
Ducted Gas Heating in Melbourne
Melbourne is known the world over for its four-seasons-in-one-day weather. When you live in a place where it’s warm one minute and cold the next, keeping your home’s indoor temperature comfortable throughout the day is an absolute must.
It’s a good thing you can count on iEnergi to provide you with a reliable ducted gas heating system. Designed to satisfy the demands of southeastern Australia’s erratic weather conditions, our heating systems are also custom made to the functional and aesthetic specifications of our clients’ properties.
How Does a Ducted Gas Heating System Work?
A ducted gas heating system features a gas-powered central heating unit that connects to the different parts of a property through a network of ducts. Conveniently kept out of sight under the floor or above the ceiling, the ductwork delivers warm air to every room through the vents located at the end of each duct. Users typically have access to a control board, which they can use to regulate settings for temperature, gas use, airflow, humidity, air filtration, and zoning, depending on the unit model.
Ducted gas heating systems work by drawing indoor air into the heating unit, which then warms the air by blowing it through a heat exchanger. This is in contrast to the method employed by reverse cycle heating systems, which draw air from the outside. As you can imagine, such heating units work less efficiently when outdoor temperatures drop because less heat is available for the system to utilise. On the other hand, ducted gas heating systems work great even during the coldest months—a time when you need warmth the most.
The Benefits of a Ducted Gas Heating System
When you choose ducted gas heating for your home or commercial property in Melbourne, you get to enjoy a number of benefits:
As mentioned, ducted gas heating systems remain efficient regardless of the temperature outdoors. They perform much better than reverse cycle heating systems, which become less efficient as it gets colder outside. This translates to more energy and cost savings.
Energy-Efficient Zoning and Heat Settings
With a ducted gas heating system, you can also divide your home into individually regulated zones. This allows you to control the heat settings for each zone or to turn the heat off completely in areas of your home where you don’t need it. The system’s energy-efficient operation and zoning functionalities can help you save between $200 and $600 every year.
Immediate Heat throughout the Property
Conversely, having a ducted gas heating system is also useful when you want to heat your entire home fast. There will be no need to place individual space heaters in each room. Moreover, ducted gas heating systems also bring indoor air to desired temperatures much quicker than do reverse cycle systems.
More Comfortable Warmth
Another benefit of ducted gas heating systems is that the heated air they produce contains more moisture than the air processed by reverse cycle heating systems. Air that is less dry is gentler on the skin, eyes, and respiratory system.
Lower Carbon Footprint
Because ducted gas heating systems are powered by either natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas, they produce less carbon gas emissions compared to electricity-powered heating systems. It is important to note that as much as 65% of the electricity produced in Australia is still generated from coal, the dirtiest source of energy in the world.
