What is Ducted Gas Heating?

ducted-gas-heatingDucted gas heating is simply the most energy efficient and inexpensive home heating solution for your home. A ducted heating solution may be ideal for your home.

With high electricity costs, energy efficiency is becoming increasingly important to all of us. Ducted gas heating provides a highly cost effective option for homes of every size in Adelaide, with the added benefit of being much kinder to the environment.

Ducted gas heating is a far cleaner way to generate heated air and more efficient fuel than coal or petroleum, and is proven to produce far fewer greenhouse emissions than most other forms of heating.

The Australian Gas Association has found that centralised ducted heating produces  just one third of the emissions of heating produced by other forms of energy, resulting in  the eco-friendly way to heat your entire home, along with it being the cheapest home heating solution.

Why Ducted Gas Heating?

why-braemar-ducted-gas-heatingDucted Gas Heating is kinder to the environment, producing fewer greenhouse gas emissions than most other forms of heating. Ducted heating is also centralised and more efficient.

  • Australian Gas Association research found that gas ducted central heating systems produced just one third of the emissions of heating produced by black coal-generated electricity. (Source: Assessment of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Natural Gas, Australian Gas Association, 2000).
  • When it gets really cold outside, ducted gas systems keep your home as warm as you want it – no matter how cold it gets outdoors!

Braemar: Our Choice for Ducted Gas Heating

For the purpose of reviewing ducted heating systems, we will use the Braemar ducted gas heating system as a reference here. Braemar is our top choice for ducted gas heating and we believe a professionally installed Braemar ducted gas heating system offers the very best results, warranty and provide a lasting asset adding value to your home.

Energy Efficiency

When considering ducted gas heating, energy efficiency should be one of the key factors. Home heating can turn out to be a very costly thing – especially during those long winters. We have some customers feedback to us that their power bills can double or triple during the cold season, when using electricity based heating systems. Even a reverse cycle air conditioner with inverter technology. In fact, ducted gas systems are a lot cheaper to run compared with reverse cycle heating.

When choosing a ducted gas heater, ensure you go for the one with a high energy star rating. Braemar ducted gas heating system, for example, features the highest energy star rating in every category.

Ducted Heating That Produces Less CO2 Emissions

Gas emissions are unavoidable when it comes to gas heaters. Take wood heaters or gas furnaces for instance, those produce a considerable amount of gas emissions. Especially the wood heaters – which is the traditional method of generating heat through the combustion or burning of firewood.

When selecting a ducted gas heater, ensure you check for the lowest CO2 or gas emission. This is not just to protect your family from the harmful effects of CO2, but also, to ensure maximum protection for the environment.

The Braemar ducted gas heating system boasts one of the lowest CO2 emissions compared with other similar ducted gas systems. This means that you get optimal heating performance with minimal harmful emissions.

Climate Control

As always, ease of use features like climate control will add to your enjoyment of a good heating solution in your home. Modern ducted gas heating systems, like the Braemar line, features flexible zoning options – so you can control the desired temperature for each room or zone in your home.

When choosing your ducted gas heating solution, make sure you evaluate the climate control features, so you can get more control over your heating options. It’s really nice to be able to setup a timer to warm up your bathroom or even the kitchen in the cold mornings, even before you get out of bed.

Superior Performance With Ducted Heating in Colder Weather (vs reverse cycle heating)

As a final point for consideration, it is proven that ducted gas heating is superior to reverse cycle heating during colder weather conditions. During a cold winter, the outdoor unit of a reverse cycle system tends to freeze up. This produces a need for the system to “reverse” the hot air from the inside of your home – back to the outdoor unit, in order to warm it up sufficiently so that it unfreezes. Once the outdoor unit is restored to a sufficient temperature, the hot air is then returned into your home.

This produces short lapses in the heating for your home. For some, it goes unnoticed. But for the more demanding users, they just may not stand for it. A ducted gas heating system like the Braemar gas heater, will have no such issue. It is a dedicated appliance to ensure your home is heated all the time – all year round.
