Feeling befuddled? Stumped? Got Buckley’s figuring out where to start on choosing a heating system?
Do you go for ducting, gas, electricity, or units that work for the whole house or individual rooms? Struth. It’s enough to send you berko.
Don’t worry, Australia. We got you. When it comes to heating Melbourne homes - or homes in other major cities like Brisbane - you’ve got heaps of options.
Here are your five basic choices:
Ducted gas heating systems deliver warm air throughout your house via a series of ducts. The system harnesses the power of, you guessed it - gas.
The downside? You have to buy gas. And you can't rely on your home's built-in access to inexpensive electricity. Plus, ducted gas isn’t as efficient as other heating systems. On the bright side, ducted gas heating typically costs less to install than the electricity-run ducted air conditioning system.
Of all the heating systems, ducted air conditioning is the top dog when it comes to efficiency. And it's the most popular! As the name implies, the system uses ducts to carry warm air to each room in your home. Running on electricity, it heats in winter and cools in summer. This versatility is why so many Aussies believe a ducted air conditioner is just the ticket.
What if you don’t want to warm your entire home, but one, two, or more rooms? It sounds like a split system is what you need. These ductless systems use an outdoor unit that sends hot air to the indoor unit, which blows the air into any room you like. Affordable, simple to install, run, and maintain.
Sometimes called "multi-split" systems, the units operate exactly like the split versions. Except for one very important difference: They use multiple indoor units connected to just one outdoor unit. The advantages are the same too, such as ductless installation. You can set each room's temperature and operate multiple indoor units off a single outdoor unit.
