Gas Ducted Heating
Gas Ducted Heating for Melbourne Homes
Natural gas ducted heating is the most efficient and cost-effective way to heat your entire home, producing considerably fewer greenhouse gas emissions than electrical heating appliances. A gas ducted heating system draws air through a return air grille that is located in a central location in the home. The airflow is pushed over a heat exchanger that heats the air, which is then distributed through your ceiling or floor outlets. The air then circulates back to the return air grille where the process starts over. The heat exchanger or furnace is fuelled by LPG or natural gas and can be installed within the roof space, externally or under your home.

Planning the Ideal Gas Heating in Melbourne Homes
Ducted heating is a long-term investment, so there are a few things to consider before you purchase a system for gas heating in Melbourne.
- Evaluate whether a system will work well with both your current and future requirements. Perhaps a smaller system is sufficient now, but will it be when your family grows or if you wish to add cooling to your home later?
- Consider using zoning with your heating system, as this can give you additional savings by only heating areas that are occupied. Typical zoning configurations consist of a day/night setup, separating living and sleeping areas.
- Consider energy efficiency ratings for your new gas ducted heating system. Different ratings offer different benefits, so ask your Staycool consultant which will suit your needs.
Add On Cooling Options for Gas Ducted Heating in Melbourne
The ducting for an existing gas heating system can also be used for a refrigerated cooling system, keeping your home comfortable all year round. This solution, called add-on cooling, requires a larger fan to push the airflow over the cooling coil, plus larger ductwork to accommodate the cold air of the system. If you plan to include add on cooling at a later stage, you save money down the track by ensuring that your ducted gas heater system has been sized correctly from the beginning. Ask us about these provisions, as well as the wide range of outlet and diffuser styles available to ensure that your system fits in with the décor of your home.
