What is ducted heating?
Ducted central heating comprises a central heating unit, which is connected to a series of outlets. Positioned strategically throughout your home, these outlets, or ducts, are installed either in the floor or ceiling. Positioning of the heating unit depends on your house. If your house is built on a concrete slab, the unit is installed on the roof. If it has space underneath or a very low roof line, the unit is installed outside or under the floor. The ductwork, which connects the outlets to the heating unit, is neatly tucked away out of sight.
Whole house heating
With ducted heating, you don’t have to walk out of a warm room into a cold one. You can be watching TV while the kids are in bed and everyone stays warm.

Move to a warm zone
Ducted central heating offers heating flexibility through zoning. Zoning enables you to divide your home into sections so living areas can be heated during the day and sleeping areas at night, or whatever suits you. Zoning is not only practical but economical. It can reduce your gas bill by up to $200 pa. in a typical home.
How does it work?
The heating unit draws air from inside your house into a return air grille. From here it then flows into the heater where it’s warmed, and then on to every room of your home via outlets, in the form of warm, gentle air.
