Ducted gas heating is the most energy-efficient and cost-effective option for heating a medium to large home or commercial building. It's discreet too, with ducts hidden inside floors, ceilings and walls.

Maxim Air's technicians are fully licensed to install ducted heating systems in new buildings or to add them to your existing home. We also service and repair ducted gas heating in all Sydney metropolitan areas.

How does ducted gas heating work?

Warm air produced by a gas heater is pushed by fans through a series of insulated ducts secluded in your ceilings, floors or walls. This heated air enters your rooms through vents, warming the room to the desired temperature set by the controller.

If you have a zoned system, different temperatures can be set for each individual zone, making sure everyone in your home enjoys comfortable temperatures and that you're not heating any areas you don't need to.

Thermostats continually monitor the temperature inside each zone and make automatic adjustments. When the desired temperature is reached, the heater switches off until it's needed again to save energy.

Many systems include features such as timers that save even more energy and give you more precise control.

Can I combine ducted gas heating with air conditioning?

Yes. If you need both heating and cooling in your home, the same ducts can also be used by ducted air conditioning to cool your rooms in the warmer months of the year.

Reverse cycle air conditioning is an alternative that provides both heating and cooling through the same electrically-powered unit. However, with natural gas and LPG being cheaper to run than electricity in most parts of Australia, you'll save money on your energy bills by using gas ducted heating.


What are the advantages of gas ducted heating?

Compared to other heating options such as portable heaters and reverse cycle air conditioning, ducted gas heating has many benefits.

Saving money

These systems use natural gas or LPG, meaning cheaper running costs than electric heaters.

Saving energy

With a zoned system, you only heat the rooms that are in use. Programmable timers also help to minimise energy use.

Instant heat

Gas heating reaches your desired temperatures more quickly than electric systems, which take longer to warm up.

Improved performance

Ducted gas heating isn't affected by changing temperatures outside, so there's no interruption or reduction in performance.

Enhanced comfort

Ducted systems release warm air at a steady and gentle pace. They don't remove moisture from the air, which can cause dryness of the skin, eyes and throat and trigger asthma and allergies with some other systems.

Environmentally friendly

Natural gas produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions than electricity produced by coal burning, making these systems kinder to the environment.


What types of systems are there?

Like most heating systems, you have a range of options for ducted gas heating. The type of system you choose will depend on factors such as the size of your home, what features you want and how energy-efficient you need it to be. More efficient systems from trusted brands generally cost more, but they'll also save you more on your energy bills in the long term.

There are two main types of systems:

Ducted gas heating only

If you only require heating or you already have air conditioning, we'll set up your ducted gas system to provide heating only. The system generally won't be in use during the warmer months of the year, and we recommend that you schedule a maintenance check before the winter arrives so our technicians can check it's still working at optimal efficiency.

Ducted gas heating with refrigerated air conditioning

If you want a system that heats and cools, we'll install a ducted system that integrates gas heating with air conditioning. You can switch between the two systems as required, which use the same network of ducts and vents to provide year-round comfort.


What size system do I need?

When you arrange your obligation-free quote for ducted gas heating with Maxim Air, our technicians will work out the capacity of system you need. This depends on:

  • the size of your home
  • the number of floors
  • the height of your ceilings
  • the number of individual zones you need
  • the number of windows in each room.

Depending on how your house is built and laid out, we may install the gas heater inside your roof space, under the floor or on an external wall. If you're planning to extend your home in the future, you should install a system that's capable of meeting your future energy needs.

    The team at MaXim Air are extremely professional and friendly. They provided expert advice and suggestions during the initial quote for a ducted system, which was also highly competitive. The installation went flawlessly, they even helped fix up a sagging ceiling when installing the ducted vents. They truly went above and beyond in making sure I was 100% happy with the job. I would highly recommend MaXim Air Conditioning.

    Arran provided expert advice and ideas (that no one else had suggested) for the initial quote for our ducted air conditioning. The quote was very competitive. We received reminders of the installation day via text prior to installation. On the day of installation Victor and his team arrived on the dot of 7am and worked all day until the job was completed. They were very conscientious and cleaned up thouroughly. Would highly recommend MaXim air conditioning services.

    Maxim recently installed 2 split system air conditioners for us and we were very pleased with their excellent service. Stephen and his team were efficient, hardworking, professional, and pleasant to deal with. We were impressed with the effort that the team went to in ensuring we were happy with the position of the units in each room, and making sure the areas were tidy and all rubbish removed after installation. The team was punctual and completed the tasks within the quoted time frame. We also were grateful for the quick responses to our queries. We would highly recommend Maxim. Thank you Stephen and team.

    Excellent service from the Maxim team. A bit late (due at 7am which is too early on a Saturday anyway!) but no concern as they did a great job and were very helpful. Highly recommended.

    I had several companies quote to replaced my existing, very old, ducted system. Maxim was the only company to actually listen to what I wanted and make great suggestions - and they delivered a quote that was much lower than I had expected. They turned up on the agreed day and worked till the job was done - no corners were cut - the quality of the install was excellent. It was a very large complex job. They cleaned up everywhere - it was like they had never been there. They left very late at night, after a very early start. Before they left I found them with a torch going over my driveway in detail to make sure no screws had been left that i would drive over - you don't see that attention to detail often. The large team we had working at our place were all very courteous and friendly. For value, integrity and a very high standard or workmanship - I would recommend Maxim to anyone without hesitation.

    Stephen provided a detailed explanation of the installation process. Air con installed 1 month ago, with new duct, motor and unit. So far so good. The customer service was good, and the price reasonable.
