Gas Central Ducted Heating — Introducing Braemar Ecostar
How does ducted gas heating work?
Ducted gas heating is one of the cleanest and most energy efficient forms of home heating – and the Braemar Ecostar is Australia’s most efficient range of ducted gas heaters.
Depending on site conditions the whole heating system can be neatly concealed under floor or in a roof space.
The system works by drawing air from inside the home. A fan then blows this air over heated tubes before re-circulating the air into the home. Cleverly designed gas jets shape the flame to ensure that the maximum heat is obtained from the gas.
The exhaust is drawn through the system and flued out through the roof through outlets in the floor or ceiling to ensure safe, clean and efficient heating for your home.
Braemar is the first in the world to offer a six star ducted gas heater! Quite simply, this is the most energy-efficient heater on the market. And, when you consider that every additional star represents a 10 to 15% drop in running costs, this is great news for every Australian.
Every gas heating appliance sold in Australia must be tested and certified for use by a NATA accredited laboratory. These results are used by the Australian Gas Association (AGA) to measure performance levels.
The stars are a clear guide to the energy efficiency of an appliance – the more stars, the better the efficiency rating. The high energy efficiency achieved by Braemar Ecostar means that it uses less gas to heat your home, which means extra dollars in your pocket.
Running costs can be lowered even further with Ecostar’s new Spectrolink Multizone Controller because it gives householders the flexibility to turn off the heater in different parts of the home, or reduce the temperature in rooms that require less heat. This greater control equates to genuine savings on heating costs and much greater personal comfort for you and your family.
decide which rooms are to be included in each heating zone when organising installation of your Braemar Ecostar ducted gas heating system with the Spectrolink Multizone option.Each zone has its own Spectrolink controller which means you can select individual comfort levels throughout your home. With the Spectrolink Multizone Controller you can also:
- Choose automatic or manual operation.
- Automatically turn zones on and off up to twice daily.
- Pre-warm the home for your arrival.
- Regulate the temperature while you sleep.
Yes, it can. A master controller operates all zones and can be located where you choose, usually in the main living area. This can be used to remotely switch the heating on or off in other zones as required.The beauty of the Spectrolink Multizone system is that the temperature can then be regulated with separate controls located in each of the four zones. The system offers exceptional flexibility with family members in different parts of the house able to set a temperature that suits them.
The new Spectrolink Multizone system is available as an option on all four and five-star models.»DOWNLOAD PRODUCT BROCHURE (PDF – 2.3MB)
Gas ducted heating is more effective and far cheaper to run than any other form of central heating*, including reverse cycle air conditioning. With Braemar Ecostar, not only will your home stay warm during winter, but you’ll save money on heating costs as well.VIEW COST COMPARISON CHART
It’s also worth remembering that reverse cycle systems lose heating efficiency once the outside temperature drops below about 5°C – the time when you need the heat most.
By contrast, Braemar Ecostar manages to maintain a steady warm environment – no matter how cold it gets outside.
The Braemar Ecostar ducted gas heating unit can be installed inside the roof space, on an external wall or, in some cases, under the house.The heating outlets, or ducts, can be positioned in the floor or ceiling, depending on your preference and the type of house. Most modern homes are built on concrete slabs so ceiling ducts are the only option.
Braemar offers a complete range of ducted gas heaters to suit every application. All Braemar dealers are expertly trained to ensure correct heater selection and installation.You can be assured that your Braemar Ecostar will heat your home effectively and efficiently.
The Braemar Ecostar is ideally suited for people with allergies*. Not only is natural gas a clean burning fuel, but also all flue emissions from the Braemar Ecostar heater are safely expelled from the home.Furthermore, unlike some forms of heating, gas systems do not dry out the air, which can cause irritation to the skin, eyes and throat.
*Always consult your physician for advice regarding your specific circumstances.
