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.

It was a pleasant experience from go to whoa.Raymond Gosling 25/07/2019
Arran listened to all our requirements and concerns and came up with a suggested system that fitted our needs.
His team arrived punctually on the day and installed it within the day,
No problems or hassles, even cleaned up all the dust, packaging, and took the old system and rubbish with them.
The new system was commissioned and working better than we had hoped for.
Many thanks to Arran and his team for a job well done.
The team was professional and did a good job installing the system. Arran and the whole team were pleasant to deal with. The system has been in about 6 weeks now and works well. Price was reasonable. I would recommend rhem.Ross S 15/07/2019

The guys from Maxim were really great. Our installation was a bit complicated and Arran spent a lot of time with us scoping the job to make sure everything was covered. He then presented us with options to make sure we got the best solution possible. On the day, the team of Stephen, Victor, Matt, Sam and Hamid did a really professional job. They were careful, the standard of work was excellent and they did a great job cleaning up afterwards. I would happily recommend Maxim to anyone looking for a quality air conditioning team.Paul Buckingham 12/05/2019
Great experience from start to finish. Arran was very professional over the phone and very informative about the products available and the whole installation process. He also made a follow up call to check on the installation and service provided. The 2 installation guys were also very friendly and professional and did a great job with the our Mitsubishi reverse split system install and even fixed some ducting on our existing ducted system. Best service we've had so far from any company during our renovations. Thanks guys!Deni Di Filippo 27/04/2019
