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 Brivis Ducted Gas Heating system draws air from inside your home through the heater where it is warmed. A fan pushes it into the rooms of your home via the outlets and duct network, in the form of a steady, gentle supply of warm air.
The Brivis controller monitors the air temperature on a continual basis and controls the Brivis Ducted Gas Heating system to ensure a consistently warm temperature throughout the home. On our higher efficiency models, as the home heats up, the heater modulates the gas so only a small amount of energy is used to keep the space at your desired comfort level.
Once your home reaches your desired temperature the heater unit switches off. The fan then comes to a halt slowly, ensuring that all the remaining heat inside the unit is used.
Why Does your heater need Replacing?
We all want to feel safe in our homes, as we should. But what if your old gas heater is costing you more money and could be making you and your family ill?
As the seasons change and we begin to turn on our heaters, be conscious if you or anyone in your home is experiencing any of the below symptoms, or worsened symptoms particularly when the heater is on. If so, there may be a faulty gas heater releasing carbon monoxide into your home.
Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning mimic those of a flu and can include:
Shortness of breath
Loss of consciousness
As technology advances, more energy efficient systems are created. The older your system, the less energy efficient your system is, because the technology just wasn’t around when you had it installed.
With a more efficient unit, you will be saving yourself money as the operating costs will be lower while your system will be achieving better results. Installing a new system can be a high upfront cost, but allow for reduced savings due to the increased energy efficiency.
Installed By Professional
Gas heaters should always be serviced and installed by a professionally qualified technician. If serviced improperly, an unsafe heater can lead to house fires or release air pollutants directly into your home, which can lead to poor indoor air pollution and have an impact on your health. These air pollutants include carbon monoxide.
Carbon monoxide is both colourless and odourless and high levels of intoxication can be extremely dangerous. The level of air pollutants varies depending on multiple factors including proper use of your heater and how often it is serviced. Carbon monoxide has many effects, but most prominent are its ability to restrict your oxygen levels and impair thinking and reflexes.
Star Ratings Explained
The star rating on your Ducted Gas Heater helps you compare how much gas your heater is actually using. It’s an indicative guide that outlines the running cost of the heater in terms of annual energy usage.
The higher the star rating, the more energy efficient the heater is – meaning bigger annual savings on your running costs. On average, an increase of one star means energy usage savings of approximately 10 percent.
