From its early origins in Korea some 7,000 years ago, evidence of central heating systems can be found littered all over the world. With raised floors, heat channelling pipes, and all manner of furnaces, these ducted systems were feats of engineering. The Greeks, the Romans, and later the British, have gradually evolved and improved each iteration over the course of time.
Indeed, many civilisations both ancient and new, have sought the means to create comfort through improved standards of living. And why shouldn’t they! With sub-zero temperatures living in cooler climates poses a real challenge to a basic human need – warmth.
Here in Canberra this need is no different. Our in-land location and close-proximity to snowy regions positions our capital as one of the coldest cities in Australia. And while our winter days are relatively mild in global terms, or evenings sure do pack a chilly punch.
To solve this dilemma there are a myriad of heating solutions available on the market. While space heating does the trick for our northern neighbours, most Canberran’s will agree that central heating is an absolute must.
When it comes to central heating, ducted gas is one of the more popular choices for the region. As the name implies, these systems offer a heating solution that uses natural gas to warm the air. Whether you are building a new residence, looking to replace, or retrofit into an existing home, there are many things to consider.
As the old-adage suggests; fail to prepare and prepare to fail! When it comes to designing a ducted gas heating system this most certainly holds true. Home size, number of zones, height of ceilings, open spaces, and windows all impact a system’s ability to heat. That is why professional system design is so important. Moreover, installing a ducted gas heating system is a task that requires the skilled finesse of licensed trades.
So where does one find these heating heavy lifters? Well, we have rounded up the best ducted gas heating services that Canberra has to offer, so do read on below.
