Ducted gas heating has endeared itself to Victorians for decades, and it’s no surprise that Victoria contributes up to one-third of all of Australia’s new ducted heating installations. With the many advantages that gas ducted heating provides, on top of being one of the most cost-effective heating solutions available, a ducted heating system in your home can keep you warm for the remainder of the winter.
Below, we’ve listed several fantastic reasons why ducted heating is a great option for you to keep the interior temperature of your home as warm as possible. Mode Heating and Cooling has close association with some of the biggest names in the industry, and can advise you on which particular brand – whether it be Braemar heating, Brivis heating or Bonaire heating – will provide you with the most benefits.
Comprehensive heating throughout the home
Due to the nature of its power source, ducted heating can essentially guarantee the complete heating of your entire home. A gas ducted heating system will burn constantly, meaning there are no cold spots – periods where there is no combustion of the fuel. Strategic placement of the ducts throughout the home can also effectively warm each to their desirable temperature, keeping each room free from low temperature.
Reliable through all seasons
A problem with particularly older reverse cycle units, is their tendency to not perform as efficiently as they should during abnormally cold temperatures. This drop in output capacity will profoundly affect the heating quality of these older systems, creating cold spots, as well as an unreliable delivery of heat. Ducted heating systems, even older ones, will work to their optimum capacity, no matter how cold the outside temperature is, providing you with reliable heating all of the time.
Great quality heat
A common problem associated with both traditional wood burners and old reverse cycle units, is their tendency to emit low quality heat. When we talk about the quality of the heat, we are referring to the way it feels in the air. Wood burners and old reverse cycle systems produce a very dry heat, and can often make the ambience of the room unpleasant. With a ducted heating system, the heat generated naturally possesses an average amount of humidity within the air itself, making it more comfortable for everyone in the home.
One of the greatest advantages of a ducted heating solution, however, is in fact the tremendous energy efficiency which even the least reliable system will possess. Gas burns as a constant, without any spikes or dips commonly associated with artificial, electric heat generators, and as a result will cost less to run. It has been shown that those that own a ducted heating system (as opposed to an electric heating solution), save up to 6% on their average energy bills, proving that ducted heating represents great value for money.
Gas is by far the cleanest of all the fossil fuels, and has been shown to leave a smaller carbon footprint than most electricity generated from traditional sources. This is particularly important when we look at electric units that have a high star energy rating, however deriving their power from coal generated energy stations. Gas ducted heating has been preferred in recent years for this very reason, and represents a well informed and conscientious decision regarding the sustainability of our environment for future generations.
