A ducted gas heating system includes a number of essential components, all of which play a very important role in ensuring the heater functions correctly.
- The heating unit
- Ducting, insulated (to protect against heat loss) that carries the air to and from the heater
- Vents that spread the heated air into rooms around the home, and a return air vent which feeds already warm air from the home, back to the heating unit
- A thermostat which measures the temperature to enable the heating unit to maintain the temperature set by the user
Gas heaters work by passing air from inside the home over a heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is heated up by a gas combustion process and pushed into the residential or commercial space(s) through the insulated ducts. The actual heated air enters the home through the vents.
A thermostat is a device that measures the temperature of the environment that is being heated up. It monitors the drops in temperature so the system can be adjusted accordingly to make the environment more comfortable.
The thermostat is normally installed in the main living area, or typically the area most frequented by people. It senses the air temperature inside the home and sends a signal to the heater to cycle on, or off, to maintain the desired temperature.
WHY GAS DUCTED HEATING? Natural gas heating offers a cost-effective solution to heat large spaces or an entire home.
User friendly. Very easy to use via the thermostat, your gas ducted heating system can be operated manually or be programmed to switch on or off automatically at times selected to suit your lifestyle.
Incredibly efficient. With gas ducted heating units available with an efficiency rating up to 7 Stars, you can afford to stay warm all Winter long.
Great Performance. Gas ducted heating provides fantastic warmth throughout the home, regardless of how cold the temperature is outside. Many other forms of heating will suffer inferior results as the outside temperature gets colder.
Unobtrusive. Gas ducted heating systems are generally installed in the ceiling or through the floor, so normally all you will see inside the home are the vents in the ceiling or floor. The unit is located in the roof space or outside so you can warm your home without having to see unsightly equipment.
