Overview of a Ducted Heating System
As you might have guessed from the name, a ducted heating system is one that conveys heat throughout your home via a system of ducts. The system is comprised of a heating unit, insulated ducts which run from wherever the heater is situated into the various rooms in your home and thermostats which allow you to select the desired temperature. Most ducted heating systems allow you to set different temperatures for a number of different rooms, depending on your heating requirements.
The process of how a ducted heating system operates is also fairly easy to understand. The ducted heating unit will transfer air from the home through the return grilles. The air then is transferred through the heater, which warms it up. Once the air is warm, it is circulated back into the home through the ducts and vents, keeping the rooms at the temperature that the homeowner designates on the thermostat. When the thermostat realises that the home is heated, it will automatically shut the heat off. Additional air that is stored in the unit will be used to heat the home until the process needs to start over again. There are many advantages to using a ducted heating system which are shared below.
Efficiently Heat Your Entire Home
For optimal comfort, many homeowners prefer to heat their entire home rather than just one room, and ducted heating systems can easily manage this. As the warm air is generated centrally and distributed throughout the home, one can simply designate that all rooms should be heated.
Or, Decide Your Level of Control
On the flip-side, if one chooses to not heat their entire home that isn’t a problem either as ducted heating systems are designed to be accommodate a variety of uses. Depending on the heating system you choose, you can designate which rooms you would like to heat and which ones you would like to keep closed off. This level of flexibility allows homeowners to ensure that they aren’t wasting unnecessary energy on areas of their home that they will not use – which drives operating costs down even further.
An Cost Effective and Environmentally-Friendly System
Most individuals are concerned with the annual operating cost of their heating system, and this is an area where ducted heaters truly shine. Ducted heating systems – particularly gas ducted heaters – are both efficient and environmentally-friendly. Furthermore, ducted heating systems come with efficiency ratings. This allows homeowners to choose their level of efficiency; the higher the level, the more efficient the unit is to operate.
While ducted heating units are energy efficient in general, there are also a number of ways that one can maintain this efficiency in the long run. For example, when the ducts and vents are properly installed and sealed and when the filters are kept clean, the unit runs at optimal efficiency.

Operates in All Weather Conditions
Any home heating unit should be resilient, and this holds true for ducted heating systems. Regardless of how cold the weather is outside, these systems are built to operate normally and ensure that your home is heated to your specifications. The last thing anyone wants is to discover that their heating unit becomes less efficient in colder weather as this can drive up heating costs and leave a nasty surprise on next month’s bill.
High Level of Air Quality
With any heating or cooling unit, it is vital to ensure that the unit will provide a stream of high-quality air, and ducted heating systems are designed to do just that. Ducted heaters do not produce dry air that tends to cause breathing issues or discomfort, and as the central heating unit is generally placed outdoors, there are no fumes or smells that enter the home. The air is also passed through filters which ensure that large particles are trapped and not circulating through the ducts.
Easy and Cost Effective to Install
Finally, installation of these units is rather simple and generally doesn’t take more than a day as long as the weather permits. Our professional installation team has worked in homes of every size and type, and will have little trouble ensuring that your installation goes smoothly and your rooms receive the desired amount of heat.
