What is Gas Ducted Heating?
Ducted gas heating is a highly recommended way of warming your entire home using one unit. It is a ducted heating system that consists of a heater and a range of ducts connected to each room either in the roof or under the floor. The natural gas used is an energy efficient way of maintaining a comfortable temperature during those cooler months.
How does Ducted Gas Heating work?
The ducted gas heating system process begins by drawing air from inside the house through a small return air grille. This cold air is passed over the heat exchanger and warmed through the gas combustion. With the fan motor running, it pushes the heated air through to each room using the series of ducts connect to the unit.
These ducts are connected to vents (also known as grilles or registers) which are strategically positioned around the home either in the ceiling or on the floor. The location and number of vent outlets is determined by size of the house, the amount of insulation in the home and the best way the heat can be distributed evenly.
What are the running costs of Ducted Gas Heating?
Ducted gas Heating is our preferred option when it comes to heating an entire home in Australia with the Brivis brand on top of the manufacture list. This is primarily due to its low annual running cost. Even the Brivis entry level 3 Star energy rated heaters are more efficient than most other heating units such as electric heaters.
Installing a higher efficient heater can further reduce the running costs by up to 30% per year, saving you an average of $474 per year.
Why choose Ducted Gas Heating?
Ducted gas heating boasts a range of remarkable features that ensure it is a premium option for heating solutions in Melbourne homes. It is cost effective, efficient, unobtrusive, quiet, and comes with the possibility of zoning for additional control.
Save further on heating running costs using Zone Control
The ability to add zones to the heating system provides additional control to your heating system. This gives you the flexibility for heating only the rooms which are being utilised, or to create different temperatures for different parts of the home. When you only want a specific area heated, zoning makes things a breeze!
Heating with Add-On Cooling
In addition to heating, most Brivis systems are compatible with the Brivis Ice™ Add-On Cooler, a coil which attaches to the heater to give it full cool refrigerated air conditioning capabilities. Similar to a Reverse cycle split system, the add on cooler has an indoor coil and outdoor condenser and produces low temperatures just like a ducted reverse cycle system would. It makes use of the same duct, vents & controller as the heater. This add on will provide your home with both heating and cooling.
The brand we recommend for ducted gas heating is the Brivis range, simply for the reputation in innovation, reliability and quality over the last 50 years. Brivis heaters are built for the Australian climate and boasts to keep homes warm and cosy for many years. The Brivis Ice™ Add-On Cooler eliminates any compatibility issues with its heaters, a common issue that many other brands would face.

What Customers are Saying
“We had 2 split systems installed just over 2 years ago and have since had 2 service calls. We could not be happier with the service we have received from Plum. The servicemen have gone about their work with little fuss, explaining what they were doing and cleaning up after each unit was serviced. This morning Shiva was here, and he was very courteous as he was working. We have nothing but praise for Plum”
"Helpful and friendly team. We had to change the date and time of the install last minute and were greeted with a ‘no problems and happy to fit in with you’ attitude. The installers arrived on time. They were friendly and respectful. They were in and then out in no time and cleaned up after themselves. They even returned things they had moved back to their original spot. Very happy we went with Plum"
