Central gas heating is the most efficient way to heat your entire home. You can save up to $300* per year on operating costs to heat your entire home using a high efficiency gas ducted heater compared to using gas space heaters, and it offers a cost-effective alternative to using electricity. Additionally, it is kinder on the environment, as it produces one third less greenhouse gas emissions than heating generated by electricity.

Central Gas heating comprises a central heating unit, which is connected to a series of outlets. The heating unit draws air from inside your house into a return air grille. It then flows into the heater where it is warmed by clean burning gas and distributed to every room of your home via outlets in the form or warm gentle air. These outlets are installed either in the floor or ceiling and positioning of the heating unit depends on your house. If your house is built on a concrete slab, the unit is installed in the roof. If it has space underneath or a low roof line, the unit is installed outside or under the floor. The ductwork, which connects the outlets to the heating unit, is neatly tucked away.
Central Gas Heating also offers heating flexibility through zoning. This enables you to divide your home into sections so that living areas can be heated during the day and sleeping areas at night. Zoning is not only practical but economical. It can reduce your gas bill by up to $200 pa in a typical home.
