With the advent of winter, keeping yourself warm and cozy inside your home quickly begins to gain ground on everyone’s priority list, you break out the winter clothes but it’s not realistic to wear heavy winter clothing all the time also just the clothing cannot control your body temperature. This is where heating comes in earlier people used to have fireplaces in their homes but today various kinds of modern heating solutions are available in the market, portable heater that heats up a single room, split electric heaters and oil powered heaters all serve the same purpose, but apart from these there is another option which provides uniform and efficient heating for the entire house and that is ducted gas heating.
This method of heating is not only more efficient but is also more effective, consumes less energy and results in few emissions, therefore, it is considered safe.
Bigger Capacity, More Uniform
Ducted gas heating consists of mainly two parts, a gas furnace and the ducting vents, the igniter hits the burner and the gas quickly hits maximum temperature heating up the air and delivering it viaducts and through the vents on the ceiling or the on the floor, to the desired rooms. This means more uniform heating throughout the house and rooms, than what could be achieved with wall mounted or portable heaters placed at one spot in each room.
More Efficient, Better Heating
Not only do ducted gas systems provide heat in the chilly weather more uniformly, they do it more quickly and efficiently too. Ducted gas systems are faster than other kinds of heating solutions as the gas furnace heats up quicker, all though reverse cycle systems can match up to the scale of heating provided by a ducted gas system, it loses its efficiency in colder weather. Thus, being quicker at heating up the entire house also means that ducted gas systems use less energy than other heating solutions which would use more energy to provide the same amount of heating.
Ducted gas heating systems also come with zone control which further increases the efficiency when it comes to energy consumption as someone who wants to heat up a zone of the house can do so while the rest of system can stay put, minimizing wastage.
Good for Your Skin
Ducted gas heating systems do not deliver dry air through the vents, unlike wood and reverse cycle heating systems which do produce dry air. Dry air in most cases can irritate the skin and the throat leading to discomfort for the residents of the house. Ducted gas systems retain most of the moisture in the air and as a result, the system provides the residents of the house with air that is not irritating.
There are many advantages of ducted gas heating systems over all other kinds of heating solutions, is that it helps not only us humans but the planet too. Ducted gas systems are by far the cleanest system of all, because of the lowest emissions. As it is powered by natural gas, the emissions are far lesser than those powered by wood, coal, oil and electricity (which in turn is produced from burning coal). In a study (Assessment of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Natural Gas) conducted by the Australian Gas Association, it was found that ducted gas central heating systems were responsible for only one-third of the emission of electricity and coal-powered heating.
In conclusion, it’s clear that ducted gas heating is much more streamlined, efficient, cost-effective and even more environment-friendly than other systems of heating.
