How to use ducted heating efficiently

Have you recently installed a gas ducted heater and are looking to use it as efficiently as possible? Maybe your ducted system is not performing the maximum capacity you’d like. Well that’s why you’re here so you can learn more on how to use your ducted heating efficiently. 

5 steps to use gas ducted heating efficiently.

1. Keep the heat contained

Close your curtains at night to help your system by keeping the heat contained, and in the afternoon, let the sun lend a bit of warmth, so your heating system doesn’t have to work as hard in the evening.

2. shut off unused areas

Zone your home by shutting off the gas ducted heating in certain unused areas. Keep in mind this can only be done with 4, 5 or 6-star heaters. The zoned energy rating label gives an efficiency rating for different seasons for 3 Australian climate zones, so you can see how the appliance will perform in your home.

3. keep things as closed as possible

An incredible amount of energy is wasted on heating rooms that have gaps in the walls or doors that let the heat escape, keep things as closed as possible when the heating is on

4. use a thermostat

Opt for a thermostat that is programmable so you can set and forget the timer making your home comfortable at the times you like, never accidentally being left on for too long

5. ducted heating service & Repairs

Be sure to keep your gas ducted heater serviced and well maintained to ensure it is running correctly and efficiently; this is as much about safety as it is saving you dollars on the utilities bill.
