Home Heating : Ducted gas heating or wood heaters
– Which is better for your home?
Home heating is just as important as air conditioning, when it comes to providing a comfortable environment for your family – all year round. Especially in Australia, where the summers can get really hot and the winters really cold.
An important decision that every home owner must face is which type of home heating best suits your family’s needs. Fortunately, picking out a heating solution for your home is not half as complicated as choosing an air conditioning system.
There are generally 3 types of home heating – Ducted Gas Heating, Wood Heaters and Gas Furnaces. Although you could also have a reverse cycle heating system.
Below is an overview of each of these types of home heating and heaters.

There are generally 3 broad categories for home heating :
Ducted Gas Heating
Warm air is generated via a gas heating unit which is lower in power costs than electrical heating systems such as the reverse cycle systems. Ducted Gas Heating distributes warm air to selected zones in a home via ducts in the ceiling or roof recesses. These zones are controlled via a control panel, enabling you to disperse warm air to rooms selectively. Ducted gas heating is possibly the most energy efficient form of home heating and kinder to the environment than most other forms of heating. It produces far less gas emmissions than wood heaters for instance.
Wood heaters can be an attractive alternative to ducted gas heating. These traditional wood heaters generate heat through combustion – or the burning of wood inside stylish boxes and furnaces. Modern day wood heaters and wall furnaces can really add a touch of style and class to a home – given their sleek designs. They can truly add a very cosy and relaxing ambience to any home. Wood heaters can come with fan forced solutions, decorative finishes and a wide range of styles to suit any home.
Gas Wall Furnaces
Gas Wall Furnaces are a very popular solution to directly warming lounges, family areas and hall ways, allowing the warmth to filter through open doorways. Operating on gas, these gas heaters are cheaper to run than reverse cycle systems and easier to maintain. Over the years, these wall furnaces have evolved to become quite stylish and sleek, making it a nice addition to any home as well.
