Gas Ducted Heating
How Does Gas Ducted Heating Work?
Gas ducted heating is a common type of central heating that can be found in homes all over the world. The basic operating principles of the systems themselves are simple, consisting of a central heating unit that is attached to a series of ductwork concealed in the ceiling or under floor. The heating unit draws in air from your home, passes it over a heat exchanger, and then returns the heated air into your home through the ducts and out of the outlets. Gas ducted heaters are a flexible option, with heating units able to be installed in the ceiling, under your home or in a protected area outside.
Ducted gas heating options offer sleek and efficient heating for your entire house. The ducting can be used to section off each room or to create zones within the house, meaning you only need to heat the areas you want to use. The system is perfect for a climate like Adelaide’s where winter temperatures see the mercury dropping for months at a time.
