Ducted Gas Heating
Ducted gas heating is one of the most effective and efficient ways to heat your home or business. However, like any system around the home, it does require a little care and attention. To ensure that it continues to operate at peak efficiency and performance, you may need to consider ducted gas heating repairs and servicing.
The Basics of Ducted Gas Heating:
Ducted gas heating systems have several components; insulated ducts, a thermostat, vents and the heater itself. The system involves passing cold air over the heater’s heat exchanger. The air is warmed through gas combustion before it is directed through the ducts to heat the property. The warmed air is moved into the rooms through vents installed in the ceiling or floor. The thermostat is typically located in the main living area. This placement ensures that the temperature is gauged to assess whether the heater needs to be switched on to maintain the desired temperature. These elements work together in concert to ensure that your entire property enjoys consistent heating to your preferred temperature settings.
The Importance of Servicing:
Just like your car, your gas heating system needs regular maintenance to ensure that it continues to operate correctly. Most manufacturers recommend that gas heating systems are serviced at least once a year, with the best time being just before the cold weather arrives. Once the winter temperatures hit, your heating system will be more frequently used, increasing the possibility of a worn component failing.
The main benefit of regular ducted gas heating service is that it can provide preventative maintenance. A professional technician can check the system for any signs of wear and tear, and replace the worn components before they fail. This is usually far cheaper than waiting until the component fails and triggers a breakdown. Additionally, the technician will check to ensure that your system is operating at peak efficiency to save you money on your energy bills.
