gas central heating
Gas Ducted Heating Systems are among the most common and traditional heaters used in homes located in cold climatic regions. Ducted central heating comprises a central heating unit, which is connected to a series of outlets. Positioned strategically throughout your home, these outlets or ducts are installed either in the floor or ceiling.
Positioning of the heating unit depends on your house. If your house is built on a concrete slab, the unit is installed in the roof. If it has space underneath the house or have a very low roof line, the unit is installed outside or under the floor. The ductwork which connects the outlets to the heating unit is neatly tucked away out of sight. Your system will need to be sized accordingly to the area in which needs to be heated by one of our experts, this will prolong the effectiveness of the system. Applications range from domestic homes to offices and Bikram hot yoga studios.
How does it work?
These heaters are fuelled by gas and as the term implies, the system makes use of ductwork to draw the air, heat it and send it throughout the living areas of the home through the ductwork situated in the ceiling or under the floor. Air is heated in the heat exchanger by clean burning gas. A thermostat controls the flow of warm and cold air to create the balance needed. The air flows through to the rooms through vents that are usually located near the doors and windows as these are the coldest sections of the home.
Saving the environment & you
A household powered by electricity produces five times the amount of carbon dioxide emissions than a household running on natural gas. That's why your best option is to install an energy-efficient gas heater. You'll not only reduce carbon dioxide emissions and your contribution to the greenhouse effect but your running costs, too. So connect to gas and look for star energy ratings on heaters. The more stars, the more energy-efficient the heater, and the more money you'll save on your gas bill.

To maximize convenience in the system, it is recommended to choose a model that can accommodate zoning. Note that the vents cannot ensure even heating and cooling of rooms. Advanced models however are equipped with mechanisms guaranteeing that air is blown evenly and that all areas are not warmer or cooler than the others.
Ducted central heating offers heating flexibility through zoning. Zoning enables you to divide your home into sections so living areas can be heated during the day and sleeping areas at night, or whatever suits you. Zoning is not only practical but economical. It can reduce your gas bill by up to 50% pa. in a typical home. So don't forget to ask about zoning when you speak to your dealer.
