What is Ducted Heating?

A gas ducted heating system extracts cold air, heats it up, then channels it through ducts concealed in the roof or beneath the floor of your home. 

Deliciously warm, toasty air then flows into your rooms via vents.

A controller regulates the ducted heating system, switching off the heating unit once your home reaches your desired temperature. 

The best part about ducted heating is that you can choose a reverse-cycle system to cool your home in summer.

Let’s have a Captain Cook at the ins and outs of ducted heating.

What is Ducted Heating?

Pros of Ducted Heating

  • Whole-home, energy-efficient heating and cooling in one system
  • Discreet installation—only grilles and controller visible
  • Zoning allows you to manage the temp in individual rooms
  • Maintains an even temperature
  • Works in any kind of climate, especially in the more humid spots of Australia
  • Silent
  • Energy-efficient
  • With regular servicing, your system should last at least 15 years

Cons of Ducted Heating

  • Needs sufficient space for installation
  • If your system isn’t zoned, the energy costs to cool the entire house could be enormous
  • Requires careful planning for optimal performance with the placement of grills

What is Hydronic Heating?

Hydro heating is a luxurious whole-home heating method worthy of Queen Bet’s residences.

Water is heated via super energy-efficient gas boilers; the water is then pumped through sealed pipes to radiators or towel racks throughout your home. 

Control the heating via a thermostat to recirculate the hot water in-panel or in-slab.

So, what are the pros and cons of hydronic heating?

Hydronic Heating vs Ducted Heating

Pros of Hydronic Heating

  • Reduces your carbon footprint, consuming almost 70% less energy than reverse cycle systems
  • Silent
  • Uses radiant heat, which improves air quality. No more dry skin, eyes, throats or stuffy sinuses
  • It’s cost-effective. Due to the even heat distribution, you can operate your rooms at a lower temp, which consumes less energy
  • Adjust each room’s temperature via a thermostat
  • Low maintenance
  • Safe to touch
  • Reliable

Cons of Hydronic Heating

  • A higher price point than conventional heaters, particularly for a retrofit.
  • Heating options only
  • Slow heat-up time

Now you’ve got a rough idea of the differences between these two cracking systems; what’s best for your home?
