Ducted Heating Adelaide
What is Ducted Heating?
Adelaide locals are no strangers to a chilly winter. As the mercury drops and biting winds roll in off the Bight, many of us reach for heaters as the best way to keep our homes feeling toasty. Ducted heating systems have only grown in popularity over the years, offering one of the simplest and most energy-efficient ways to heat an entire home. Using a central heating unit, ducted systems draw cold air from inside the home, pass it through a heating element and return the warmed air to the zones where it’s needed. These systems are simple and flexible, and the ability to section off a house into zones gives Adelaide residents an easy way to control their heating bill by closing off rooms that don’t need heating.
There are a couple of types of ducted heating systems available, running on either natural gas or electric reverse cycle air conditioners. Reverse cycle air conditioners work on the same principles as refrigerated air conditioners, only they provide heat inside of the home by removing the available heat from the air outside of the home and transferring it to the refrigerant.
Why is My Ducted Heating Not Working?
When winter rolls around and you reach for the thermostat, it can be frustrating to discover that your ducted heating system has stopped working. The Air Conditioning Doctor recommends customers have their ducted heating systems serviced once per year. Having your system serviced before winter begins ensures you won’t run into any unexpected problems when you need your heating to be in top shape.
There are a few common reasons for ducted heating systems to stop working:
- Faulty thermostats, temperature sensors and controllers
- Refrigerant leaks
- Blocked and dirty filters
- Burned-out motors and fans
- Blockages at the evaporator and condenser
- Faulty circuit boards and electrical equipment
- Ductwork joints leaking
