In-Depth Guide #9 - Ducted Heating Systems in Australia
Ducted heating systems are an increasingly popular way of warming Australian homes. These low-maintenance systems can run on gas or through a split system air conditioning unit. GJ Bradding is the specialist in ducted heating in Geelong for quality installations, maintenance and repairs. Below we take a deep dive into the benefits of ducted heating systems and how to care for them.
Benefits of Ducted Heating
Ducted heating systems pump warm air through every room in your home through vents connected to ducts located either above the ceiling or under the floor. The temperature can be easily controlled using a thermostat, offering complete control over the system.
- Easy to create zones
- Instant warmth
- Easy to control/change the temperature quickly
- Very energy efficient, especially when operating on gas
- More environmentally friendly
- Can be combined as both a heating and cooling system
- Ideal for heating multi-story buildings efficiently
Ducted heating systems can be installed in both new and existing properties, as long as the property has enough ceiling or underfloor space for the ducts.
Maintaining Your Ducted Heating System
To continue working efficiently, ducted heating systems do require regular care and maintenance, especially after a winter spent working hard. Over time, dust, hair, skin flakes and various other pollutants build up inside your ducted heating system. A build-up of dirt, dust and debris in your ducted heating system puts extra strain on your machine and wears it out faster. It also contributes to the spread of allergens and pollutants in your home.
Look for dirty build-up on the inside of your vent covers. Using the brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner, remove dirt, dust and other debris. Examine the filter and clean it if necessary as well as replace them according to the recommended intervals.
Annual Professional Inspections
Organise a yearly visit from ducted heating Geelong experts to inspect your unit and test everything is working properly. These experts can provide a deep clean, replace filters, test for leaks or poorly functioning seals and assess the overall function and efficiency of the system. A professional inspection will also reveal any major issues such as mould development, pest infestations or electrical faults.
