Not everyone has heating their homes on their mind the middle of Summer, but if you are thinking about installing or upgrading a heating system in your home, now is the time to consider your options and get the job done before the chilly months start rolling in. Don’t leave it until the last minute and be left out in the cold!

More Australians are starting to enjoying the benefits of natural gas heating – are you?

  • Heating your home with natural gas is cheaper, keeping you cozy in the winter months without burning a hole through your wallet.
  • Natural gas is better for the environment than coal-based electricity, producing less green house gases.

What to consider when installing a new heating system:

  • What is your climate? The colder the region, the more powerful the system is recommended.
  • How big are the areas that you wish the heat? Consider the size of your house and the areas you wish to heat.
  • How good is your insulation? Having a well insulated house can make a big impact on your heating bills.

Types of heating systems:

  • Gas Ducted (Central) Systems can heat up your whole house through a network of ducts. Fan forced ducts are run through the roof or under the floor and fill rooms with warm air. Through zoning, you can choose what areas or rooms to heat, not wasting energy heating up rooms with no one in them.
  • Flued (Non-Portable) Heaters are great for heating up large areas, live your living room. If you have a fire place in your home, a flued heater is an ideal replacement if you are looking to upgrade.
  • Unfluded (portable) Heaters are great for small rooms and are easy to move or store due their lightweight and size. They are not recommended for colder climates, however.
