Ducted gas heating is a well-established favourite option for Australian consumers as they prepare for the cold winter months in their homes. This is because it is a cost-effective way to heat your home both quickly and simply – with just a press of a button, you can have warm air circulating throughout your entire house in no time at all.
It manages this through a single heating unit, usually installed outside of your home, that warms and then blows air through insulated ducting and duct outlets that are placed in your rooms. Because of the way the air is warmed, ducted gas heating doesn’t dry out the air like other heating methods can, which results in far less irritation for your eyes and skin and a more comfortable environment overall.
One of the benefits of how simple ducted heating systems are is that they can quickly become a smart asset to your home, able to be intelligently programmed to come on as soon as the cold becomes uncomfortable for you and your family. This can also apply to some basic scheduling functions, meaning that with just a few button presses you’ll ensure nobody ever has to wake up in the freezing cold or come home to a chilly house ever again.
Depending on the model that you choose and the complexity of your system, your house can also be separated into intelligently-controlled zones, with temperatures adjusted independently. This saves you money, as you’re not heating rooms that you aren’t occupying. Even on models that don’t support this zoning function, the ducting can simply be shut in rooms that don’t require heating.
Ducted gas heating systems are suitable for almost every home and circumstance, as it can be installed in the roof of your house or on the outside, with insulated ducting run from this central heating location. The exact details of the installation process are different for every home, but our heating experts will work closely with you to determine exactly what the best solution is for your family.
The Star Rating System, Explained
As soon as you begin to research heater systems you will discover that they’re rated with stars and may be confused about how to interpret this rating when making your purchasing decision.
This star-rating system is used in Australia to communicate the efficiency of a heating system in terms of how much gas it uses to produce the heat that is pumped throughout your home. The scale is from 3–7, with 3 being the least efficient score and 7 being the maximum level of efficiency possible. It is meant to act as an indicative guide of just how much a heating system will cost you to run in terms of annual energy usage. The higher the stars, the bigger the savings.
As a general rule of thumb, an increase of one star will save you approximately 10% in your energy usage. By choosing a system with a higher rating, you could very quickly be saving hundreds of dollars a year, compared to a less efficient system.
If you have any confusion, concerns or questions when deciding which heating system is right for you, your friendly Casey Air partner will be happy to help guide you through the specifics of whichever model you are interested in.
