While ducted heating might be able to improve your air quality initially, leave it unmaintained for too long and it might have the opposite effect. The filters in this gas heating system are effective when clean but become dirtier as time goes on.
Eventually, this grime will start entering your home and negatively affect your air quality, potentially making your family sick. Regular duct cleaning can help maintain your filters so you can enjoy better air quality.
Occasionally we find systems with gas leaks. Regardless of whether it's natural gas or LPG, a gas leak is bad news. Being highly flammable, the rotten egg smelling gas puts you at risk of fires and explosions!
Then there's carbon monoxide. This colourless and odourless gas is a result of incomplete combustion in the gas heating process. You can expect nausea, headaches and confusion as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning. In severe cases - death.
Jim's Air Conditioning technicians are highly experienced in gas ducted heating maintenance and fault finding. Regular maintenance with Jim's means you don't need to worry about these problems with your heating unit.
Benefits of Gas Ducted Heating
Are you after a whole-home heating unit without breaking the bank? Gas ducted heating might be just what you need.
This heating unit takes cold air and runs it through a gas-powered heater, heats it up, and distributes warm air throughout your home via ducts and vents.
There is a range of benefits that come along with installing gas heating in your home:
Filters help to improve air quality - allergy sufferers and asthmatics can breathe easy
Zoning gives greater control over which rooms are heated and makes this heating unit more energy efficient
Internal air is recirculated and reused which requires less energy to heat
Installing gas ducted heating alone is a more cost effective whole-home heating system than a reverse cycle installation
Have discreet vents instead of bulky wall mounted units
That's a whole lot of reasons why ducted gas heating might be the right heating system for you.
Gas Ducted Heating Installation
Jim's Air Conditioning, despite the name, is a gas ducted heating installation specialist. Installing the necessary ductwork is not a problem for our experienced technicians. Whatever the brand of ducted gas heating you choose, we have the knowledge to correctly position the return air vent so the system works at its best. We are aware that you don't want ugly grilles in the wrong place and can work with you to come up with ideal solutions.
The same applies to positioning ceiling vents. We position the vents in the places that suit you and make life as comfortable as possible, especially on those frosty mornings when luxurious central heating makes you want to get out of bed instead of the other way around.
Gas ducted heating installation is completed on the same day so that there is no waiting around for things to get done. Typically you can be luxuriating in wonderful whole home warmth the very evening of the day you schedule your installation.
Emergency Air Conditioning Repairs
Has your gas ducted heating unit sprung a gas leak? Or maybe it's simply stopped working on a near-freezing night. Whatever the reason, Jim's Air Conditioning has emergency air con technicians on standby just for this purpose.
We understand you don't want to be left in the cold without a heater for long. Our heating and cooling experts can be at your door just 1 hour* after your call for ducted heating emergency service and general maintenance. How's that for prompt service?
Our service within the hour is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year round. And regardless of the day or time, we don't charge any extra for after hours or weekends. Midday on Monday, late Friday evening, or late Saturday night, it's all fair game. Even public holidays!
Gas Ducted Heating Cost
Whole home heating systems tend to be more costly upfront. Gas ducted heating prices, while not as costly as reverse cycle, are more costly than single room heating systems. Thankfully you don't need to have the whole price upfront to have this or any other heating system installed with Jim's Air Conditioning.
Our interest free payment plans** are hugely popular with all our heating and cooling services. With a $0 deposit, you can install now and pay later. Easy weekly or fortnightly repayments mean there's no financial stress with paying it back.

Ducted Heating FAQs
All your ducted heating questions answered!
What is ducted heating?
Ducted gas heating is a single unit used to heat an entire home. A central heating unit is installed outside or in a roof space and heats cold air using gas. This warm air is distributed throughout your home via ductwork in your ceiling and enters through vents. This warm air is recirculated back through and reused to better maintain the temperature.
Which ducted system is the best?
The best system depends on your individual home and circumstances. There is a range of different star ratings for energy efficiency, as well as zoning capabilities to give you greater control.
Discussing your options with a qualified air conditioning technician like those at Jim's Air Conditioning can help you find the right ducted heating system for your home.
Can ducted heating leak carbon monoxide?
Yes, ducted heating units can leak carbon monoxide. Gas heaters use a process of combustion to heat air. When there is not enough oxygen, the combustion is incomplete. Carbon monoxide is a by-product of incomplete combustion, and so any gas heater has the potential to leak carbon monoxide.
Regular maintenance to check over all the components and ensure they are working correctly can prevent this from occurring.
Can it make you sick?
Yes, a poorly maintained heater with dirty filters can make you sick. The air contaminants the filters would typically remove end up being distributed around your home through the vents and ducts.
Alternatively, if your ducted heater is leaking carbon monoxide, this can also make you sick. Carbon monoxide poisoning symptoms include nausea, headaches, confusion and more. In extreme cases, it can even cause death!
