Gas Ducted Heating

Ducted heaters are normally positioned in the roof space, under the house or on the outside of the house. Ducts are attached to the heating unit and the other end positioned into the main rooms of the house. Each ducted heating system can accommodate a number of different ducts and most can take up to 8 ducts with out many problems. If you require more than 8 ducts in your house you may want to consider a higher efficiency or an extra air system.

The outlets are positioned either in the roof or in the floor depending on where the unit is. A return air duct is normally positioned in a cupboard near the heater. This return air duct draws in air from the house and passes through the ducted heater and is then blown out to the outlets. It is really important to keep these return air ducts free from dust or lint as this will be drawn into the heater and can cause blockages. It is also important to ensure the return air duct is secured correctly to a grill on the wall or in the cupboard door. If a return air duct is not secured properly the suction of the heater can cause it to close up on itself and over heat the heater.

Cracked heat exchangers are the most common reason why a ducted heater will need to be replaced. Ducted Heaters should last a good 15 – 20 years and some of the older models will last a lot longer than that, especially if they are regularly serviced and maintained. Cracked heat exchangers are a common cause of lethal Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and require that the heater is either fixed, if possible, or will be cut off for safety.

We are serious when it comes to your safety, but we don’t want to cost you money either so if your heater has a cracked heat exchanger in every instance we will attempt to show you the problem, either personally or if that’s not possible we will take a photo and show you the problem. Depending on the make and model of your ducted heater we may be able to replace the heat exchanger or in the worst case scenario we will recommend a replacement.

We can supply, install, maintain, repair and service all models of Ducted Heating Systems, please call us today to find out more on 0407394945

Carbon Monoxide Safety

Older models of gas space heaters and ducted heaters are one of the major dangers in the household for Carbon Monoxide poisoning.

Energy Safe Victoria, the gas safety regulator, advises that small children, unborn babies, people with heart issues and the elderly are particularly susceptible to CO poisoning.

Human senses cannot detect the presence of carbon monoxide. Furthermore, carbon monoxide poisoning can happen without the immediate symptoms being obvious, or the symptoms may be confused with those of simple fatigue or a common cold. If symptoms show up it may be too late to reverse the effects of the poisoning.

Symptoms of poisoning can include:

  • headaches
  • tiredness
  • dizziness or weakness
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • loss of memory
  • confusion.
Health effects of poisoning

In severe cases, carbon monoxide poisoning can lead to long-term and/or irreversible health effects such as:

  • heart disease
  • brain damage
  • loss of consciousness
  • death.

Carbon monoxide is a toxic, colourless and odourless gas that can come out of many commonly used items. It can cause long-term health effects such as heart disease and brain damage and is often deadly. Learn about the hazards and some tips on how to help avoid carbon monoxide poisoning.

The main cause of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning is from combustion of fuels such as petrol, oil, gas and wood in areas with little or no ventilation.
