FAQs - Gas Heating
Using my gas heater
Can I heat different rooms in my house to different temperatures?
Yes! The Braemar Spectrolink Multizone Controller allows you to set different temperatures in up to four designated zones within the house. Simply discuss which rooms can be included in each heating zone when organising installation of your Braemar Ecostar ducted gas heating system with the Spectrolink Multizone option. Each zone has its own Spectrolink controller which means you can select individual comfort levels throughout your home.
Can I pre-warm my house so it isn't freezing when i get home or when i get up in the morning?
Yes! The Spectrolink Controller allows you to automatically turn zones on and off up to four time daily, so you can pre warm the home for your arrival and regulate the temperature while you sleep. This is because the controllers have Wake, Away, Home and Sleep modes.
Can I use one controller for the entire house?
Yes, you can. A master controller operates all zones and is usually located in the main living area. This can be used to remotely switch the heating on or off in other zones as required.
Which Braemar Ecostar models have the Spectrolink Multizone function?
The new Spectrolink Multizone system is available as an option on all four and five-star models.
I have ducted evaporative air conditioning in my home, can I operate my heater and air conditioner with the same controller?
Yes. The Braemar Spectrolink Multizone controller can be linked with Australia’s most popular brands of evaporative air conditioners – post 2001 Braemar, Breezair and Coolair models – and this can be done at any time. Your accredited Braemar specialist can show you how easy this is.

My heater is working but it is not delivering enough heat, what should I do?
If your heater is new (less than 12 months old), contact your installer to discuss the system design and operation.

How much gas will my heater use and what will it cost?
Seeley International can not accurately calculate gas, water and or power consumption as any calculation must be based on individual requirements and conditions. The factors that determine the result include climatic conditions, installation specifications, product selection, service utility charges, expectations and requirements, where these factors continually change prevents a correct calculation being made and can not be measured at a fixed point.
Any comparisons Seeley International makes between systems are based on equivalent sized products at a pre determined requirement and operating conditions.
