How do you install ducted heating?
Installing a gas ducted heating system or a reverse cycle ducted heating system requires a qualified and licensed trades-person
Funnily enough, the same tradie can install both types of ducted heating.
Beyond Heating and Cooling can install ducted gas heating and refrigerated heating and cooling.
Both systems rely upon a series of pipes, tubes and ducts that fall under mechanical plumbing.
The Beyond Heating and Cooling Team have been installing ducted heating and cooling solutions across Melbourne for the past 15 years, and they know what works and what does not work in Melbourne!
Ducted heaters are versatile and can be adapted to suit your home.
Ducted heating is the best choice for your home because of its versatility and can be successfully installed in almost any home.
So whether you live in an older home or a new townhouse, ducted heating is perfect for you and your floor plan. The two main options are:
Gas Ducted Heating
Gas ducted heating (GDH) is a heating system that runs on natural gas or LPG. The system consists of an external furnace that heats cold air by passing it through a heat exchanger before pumping it to other areas of the house through a system of ducts and outlets. The air then rises back up through a return duct in a wall or ceiling before being re-circulated through the system.
Ducted Gas Heating With Reverse Cycle Cooling
Gas ducted heating also offers the possibility of integrating an additional cooling system also known as Add on Cooling System
As the name suggests, air conditioning can be connected to your ducted heater to cool through the same ducts and outlets and use the same controller, saving you time and money.

Ducted Reverse Cycle Heating and Cooling
The reverse cycle ducted air conditioner is an air conditioning system that is also a very efficient heating system for the winter.
An electric air conditioner consists of a compressor, heat exchanger and fan and uses refrigerant to cool or heat the air and move it around the house through a duct system.
In reverse cycle mode, the unit extracts heat from the outside air and moves the cool air out of the house, heating the entire home.
How long does it take to install ducted heating?
A new gas ducted heating system installation with 6-8 outlets usually takes approximately one day.
The exact time required will depend on some of the following factors;
- How many outlets/ducts are needed for the installation?
- Where will the heating system be installed – ceiling cavity, under the house or on an outside wall
- Will the ducted heating system be zoned?
Ducted heating systems are quick and easy to install.
In most cases, you can have your ducted heating system installed one day and up and running the next. This means fewer work hours, making it a much more affordable option for you and your budget.
We can also install an add on cooling system so you can enjoy ducted cooling in the summer months. You get to use the duscts that are already in place!
We will provide you with all information including the estimated installation time before starting the work.
What are the costs of a ducted heating system?
Having the system installed by an experienced team such as Beyond Heating and Cooling is a way to ensure you are getting quick and efficient installation and avoid a poorly installed system.
When choosing a system, the higher Energy Star rated systems are more expensive but will save you money in the long run.
With ducted heating, you are in total control.
With a ducted heating system, you have total control over the temperature in your home. Some ducted heating systems can even be controlled remotely via the Internet, even when you are not at home. This means you can program your ducted heating to turn on before leaving work and come home to a warm home. Ducted heaters are also an accurate and reliable way to keep the temperature in your home at precisely the level you want it to be.
Duct heaters: a good choice for asthmatics and allergy sufferers.
You may be hesitant to choose a ducted heater because of concerns about the effects on allergies and asthma. However, a ducted heater can filter the air and thus remove some of the dust and other allergens. They use the latest filer technology to keep the air clean and pure.
Ask us about the different types of filters that have been released in the last 2 years and there are add on filter systems that you can decide to install.
If you have asthma or another respiratory condition, you’ll want your home to be an even temperature, especially just before dawn, when the temperature outside can drop dramatically.
With a ducted heater, it’s much easier to precisely control and stabilise the room temperature in your home, even when it’s cold outside and blowing up a storm.
Ducted heaters are a discreet and unobtrusive way to heat your home.
The best thing about ducted heating is that it is one of the most discreet ways to heat your home. It is quiet and responsive and heats the whole house in seconds.
By installing a ducted heater, you won’t have to deal with an ugly wall-mounted unit when you’d use that precious wall space for something that better suits your taste and décor.
With a ducted heater, the ducts are discreet and barely noticeable, the airflow is smooth, and the heating effect is luxurious.
Duct heaters are the safest heating option on the market.
Duct heaters are the safest heating option, especially if you have small children or pets. Unlike an open fire, gas wall heater or radiant heater, the risk of burns from contact with hot surfaces is wholly eliminated when installing a ducted heating system. The absence of an open flame or another ignition point within reach of prying fingers and paws also greatly reduces the fire risk in your home. If safety is your priority, ducted heating is a clear winner.
Ducted heating solves all heating problems at once
The best thing about a ducted heating system is that it can heat the whole house excellently with just one heating system. With so many ducted heating systems on the market, a unit is sure to be perfect for your home’s layout and needs and Beyond Heating And Cooling can advise you on what will work best for your home.
