All You Need To Know When Deliberating On Ducted Heating For Your Residence

Certainly, Australia's mostly tropical climatic conditions cause homeowners to prioritise air conditioning for their properties, as this is the only solution to their suffocating heat. However, the temperatures can drop low, and depending on your location, the winters can prove to be frigidly cold. To counter this, it is obligatory to invest in the right heating system. While there are many options in the market, none is as effective as ducted heating.

Also commonly known as central heating, you can easily create zones in your home with this unobtrusive system. This zoning gives you the flexibility to heat specific rooms as needed and leave others untouched. For example, if you and your family are spending time in the living room, you can heat this space and leave the heating off in the bedrooms or TV room. This article touches on a few of the things worth noting when you are considering ducted heating for your property.

What does a ducted heating system operate on?

When shopping for a ducted heating system, the first decision that you need to make is whether you want your particular system operated via reverse-cycle air conditioning or gas heating. Each these options offer their benefits. Gas heating, for instance, is much more efficient. Thus, you will not have to be burned with exorbitant utility costs during the winter.

Reverse-cycle air conditioning, on the other hand, allows you to switch to cooling when the temperatures begin to rise. Hence, the final decision will be based on whether you feel the cost savings are more beneficial or if the flexibility of heating and cooling is best.

How does the ducted heating system function?

Some people hear the word zoning and automatically presume that the functioning of a ducted heating system is complex, but this is not the truth. Once hot air is generated, it is directed through ductwork that pushes the air into vents. These vents, which can be installed in the wall, ceiling and floor, release the heated air into the room. A return vent is also installed in the different rooms, and this vent works to ensure that the air is recirculated back into the system once it cools for additional heating.

To ensure that the different zones in your house maintain specific temperatures, thermostats are installed into each room. You then have a programmable panel that gives you control over the individual temperatures in the various zone, the amount of time you want the ducted heating system to be in operation and more. Therefore, this system is not only efficient, but it is user-friendly too.
