What is it?

 

Gas Ducted Heating

Ducted Reverse Cycle Refrigerated Air Conditioning

 

Fixed gas heater which uses natural or LPG gas to heat the air which is then distributed through ducts into the home.

Ducted Refrigerated air conditioners consist of a compressor, fan and heat exchange coil and use a refrigerant to cool or heat the air.

How does it work?

 

Gas Ducted Heating

Ducted Reverse Cycle Refrigerated Air Conditioning

 

Ducted gas heating consists of a furnace, ducting outlet registers and a return air grille.

The furnace is fuelled by Natural gas or LPG

Air is drawn in by a fan and passed over a heat exchanger which warms the air.

Ducts distribute the warm air through the home.

The return air grille recirculates air to the furnace beginning the cycle again.

Ducted gas heaters can be installed inside the roof space, on an external wall or under the house (the most suitable installation type depends on your house construction).

Ducted Reverse Cycle Refrigerated Air Conditioners have two separate mechanical parts, an outdoor compressor and an indoor unit with fan and heat exchange coil.

The outdoor compressor unit compresses liquid into a gas state to allow the refrigeration effect to take place, exactly the same way as does your home refrigerator.

When in heating mode the cooling cycle is simply reversed.

The compressed gas is transferred into the indoor unit.

The fan is connected and then controlled by a room installed thermostat that draws the air from inside the home, passes it through a filter and then recirculates throughout your home approximately 10 times each hour.

How much energy does it use and how much will it cost to run?

Gas heaters are energy efficient, generally providing more heat at a lower cost.

Electric heat almost always uses more energy and is less efficient to run than gas heating.

What is the most effective system for my climate?

 

Gas Ducted Heating

Ducted Gas Heating works efficiently no matter how cold it is outside, so is suitable for all climates, especially where the temperature drops below 5°C

Split systems are suitable for most climates.

However, in climates where temperatures drop below 5°C, electric heating becomes less efficient while gas heating works efficiently and will heat no matter how cold it is outside.

Lifestyle considerations?

Gas heating does not dry out the air and results in a high comfort level and an asthma-safe environment.

Electric heating can remove moisture from the air and dry the skin and eyes.

Environment considerations?
