How gas ducted heating works

How Does Gas Ducted Heating Work?

Gas Ducted Heating is a whole house heating solution that works via a series of ducts installed in the roof or floor.

Heated air is produced from a central heating unit that draws air from the return air grill inside your home and passes it through a gas heat exchanger, which efficiently heats the air. A fan then pushes the heated air through the ducted system for an energy efficient heating solution.

Gas Ducted Heating is regulated with a controller that allows you to set your desired temperature. Your gas heating system will then automatically turn on and off to maintain this temperature.

Gas Ducted Heating works best with floor vents, offering superior heat delivery! Hot air rises, cool air sinks, following the natural pattern of air flow.

Annual Energy Running Costs
The running costs of gas ducted heating


The calculations are based on an average 2-star house in a Melbourne climate. To estimate the running cost for a cold climate, such as Ballarat, multiply these figures by 1.3. For a warm climate, such as Mildura, multiply these figures by 0.7. To estimate the running cost for a 5-star house in a Melbourne climate multiply these figures by 0.4. For a 6-Star house multiply these figures by 0.3.

Gas Ducted Heating FAQ's

An average lifespan of a Ducted Gas Heating System with regular routine service should probably last 10-20 years.
If your heater is not well maintained and it’s over > 10 years old, the chance is it is probably uneconomical to repair, and the price could be cheaper to replace with a new heater.

There is Victorian Energy Upgrade program by Victorian Government to help  households reduce the energy costs.

To assist you in making the right decision, it is best to speak with the team at ComfyHome to give you an honest assessment on the condition of your existing heating system.

Add-On Cooling is a cooling unit that can be added to your existing or new Ducted Heating System.

However, in most cases, if you already have an existing Ducted Heating System, there’s a good chance that your heating unit and ducting may not be cooling-compatible.

The best practice is to confirm with our Add-On Cooling professional at ComfyHome to ensure your existing ducting size and heating unit has sufficient airflow output for Add-On Cooling before purchasing.

There is absolutely no way to work out the best ducted heating system that suit best to your home without organising an on-site inspection to size up your home and find out your needs.

Let say if you are looking for the innovations and most energy efficient system in terms of low running cost, then the Braemar ECOSTAR® 7 Star may best suit your requirement.

And if you are looking for “built to last” and after sales service is key for your system, Brivis could be an ideal option for you.

At ComfyHome Heating & Cooling, we focus in specialised personal approach that fits your home and your needs.

It usually takes around 1 day for new installation of a Gas Ducted Heating system with 6-8 outlets.

The exact amount of time may vary depends on some of the following factors;

  • How many outlets / ducts are required in the installation?
  • Where will the heater be installed? (Roof cavity / External wall)
  • Will zoning option be added to the Ducted Heating System?

We will advise you an estimate of timeframe of installation prior to commence of work.

As a general rule of thumb of sizing a Ducted Gas Heater in Melbourne areas, every 10 m² = 1 kW output required.
Say if your home is 150 m², a minimum of 15kW output is required to warm your whole house.

However, adjustment factors such as the ceiling height, home insulation, quantity of windows may affect the final results of finding to right size for your home.

Speak with the specialist at ComfyHome for an accurate assessment of the exact size of ducted heater required for your home.

According to Energy Safe Victoria, you should have your heater serviced & tested at least once every two years by a licensed or qualified gasfitter.

It is essential to check the Gas Ducted Heater on a regular basis to ensure there are no gas or carbon monoxide leakage.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is very dangerous, odourless and toxic gas that could cause carbon monoxide poisoning to human body.

If you have never had your heater serviced, we strongly suggest that you should book in a service for your ducted heating system immediately before using.
