How does ducted gas heating work?

 

A ducted gas heating system includes a number of essential components:

  • The heater itself;
  • Insulated ducts that carry air from and to the heater;
  • Vents (also known as grilles or registers) that spread air into individual rooms and return air to the heater; and
  • A thermostat.

Gas heaters work by passing cold air over a heat exchanger, which is warmed by gas combustion. The warmed air is then pushed through ducts into the home via a series of vents in the ceiling or floor.

A thermostat is installed in the main living area. This senses the air temperature inside the home and sends a signal to the heater to cycle on, or off, to maintain the desired temperature.

The products of combustion are all discharged safely outside the home, via a flue.
