Gas ducted heating systems are the most popular form of heating for Australian homes, as they are more efficient and cost-effective than other systems, such as reverse cycle heating. They also have flexible zoning options, which allow you to choose which areas of the home to heat at different times. Read more from the experts here at GJ Bradding in Victoria to learn some maintenance tips for keeping your gas ducted heating system running efficiently.
Check your Thermostat
Before the start of heating or cooling season, it is important to first check your thermostat. One of the biggest problems households face with gas ducted systems, is that the thermostat is not reading the temperature correctly. Hence, the house never reaches your desired set temperature. Your thermostat may need recalibration to function properly.
Check the Ducts for Unwanted Build-Up
With forced air systems such as gas ducted heating, the ducts that transport the air can experience build-up of unwanted matter such as dust, mould, and rust. Ensure that your ducts are checked at least twice a year and are cleaned properly.
Clean the Vent Grates Regularly
Vents are installed to stop things like dust from entering the room. Therefore, it makes sense that the vents will have a considerable amount of build-up of dirt and dust matter. If this builds up too much, your heating system will become less efficient, more expensive to run and more likely to blow dust and dirt into the room. Remove vents in all the rooms at least twice a year and wash them with warm soapy water. Ensure you allow them to dry thoroughly before putting them back on.
Ensure the Air Filter is Changed
Firstly, make sure that your system is fitted with a good quality return air filter when it is first installed. Make sure this air filter is replaced with a new one at least once a year.
