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.

    Fantastic service! Stephen was very helpful and professional right from the start. My house had a very small roof space which made the job very challanging, but he took it onboard and made things work. The boys were very friendly and professional. Would highly recommend MaXim Air to my family and friends. Thank you

    Stephen and the team at Maxim Air did a great job. They were very professional from the beginning.

    Stephen sent a technician for the inspection within a very short time period.

    After a thorough inspection, all the options were explained to us in detail and clearly answered all our queries, and guided us through the process.

    The technician on site was very polite and friendly.

    A high quality job was delivered on time for a very reasonable price. We are very happy with the results and would highly recommend Maxim Air.

    Our air condition is 20 years old and never worked to full potential it was always very weak and not much heating or cooling. Rang Stephen he came had a look and advised to change all the ducts and put new zones. Very happy we went with his advise we ended up with perfect heating and cooling so he really saved us from buying a new unit. The guys who came to do the job were all very efficient and polite, I would not refrain from recommending them to anyone they were all very good and very reasonable price

    The boys at Maxim Air Conditioning were very professional and respectful. My new ducted airconditioning has been great. The best thing I found about the whole installation was how quiet and kind the staff were to my family and home environment. Cleaned up everything at the end and took away all packaging. Would recommend this company to anyone!

    Maxim did a really good job. Stephen and Aaron provided a good solution for me and provided viable options for the system. Their team does neat work and goes the extra mile (they fixed some holes they found in my roof for me and provided some tips on fixing damaged drywalling). A really good experience they delivered what they promised.
