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 Hills District, North Shore and 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.
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:
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.

MaXim Air recently installed ducted airconditioning in our home. From start to finish the service was very professional and efficient. The installations guys were awesome and worked tirelessly in extreme heat to complete the job and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Thank you MaXim AirCarolyn O’Brien 22/02/2019
Thanks to Arran and Stephen for their excellent workmanship and customer friendly attitude. Right from the beginning of the process they always guided us about the right product for our home and kept us informed all along. We installed 18.0 KW ducted AC and the whole process was really smooth. There was some delay from my end in approving the quote but Arran still did his best to accommodate the installation dates so that my family can bear the unexpected hot weather in Sydney during the months of December and January. Thanks Maxim team.Raj Bareja 01/02/2019

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.Tom Williams 03/12/2018
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.Helen Devitt 01/12/2018
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.Calvin and Kimberley 18/11/2018
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.Andrew Wild 17/11/2018
