Keep warm with gas heating!
Different parts of Australia, require different levels of heating, yet with so many systems on the market, how do you know what will suit you the best?
How We Can Help
When it comes to gas heating, Service Today employs two types of heating, to suit two types of scenarios.
- Central heating &
- Space heating
Let’s have a close look at the difference to help you establish which category is best fitting for you.
Colder climates require more consistent heating and obviously, there are parts of Australia that can get very cold. In these places it’s imperative that homes are kept warm and for that to happen you need to ensure that you’re using the most appropriate system.
Central heating is used to keep a home consistently warm, through a single heat source. It’s designed to maintain and deliver a steady temperature, so that you don’t wake up in the middle of the night freezing cold.
Typically, a gas boiler heats air, then fans transport that warm air to room vents via ductwork.
These vents can be located at either low level, or at high levels, depending on the design and each room, or zone has its own thermostat. These thermostats give the occupant control over differing temperatures in different areas of the home. For example, you could potentially have the heat in the living area set lower than the heat in the bedrooms, whilst everyones in bed.
Some of the advantages of central heating are:
- Consistent heat, regularly.
- Heat is available throughout the entire home via the one system.
- Temperature can be set according to area and preference.
- Because room heat is maintained, it takes less energy to heat a room from scratch.
- You won’t come home, or wake up to a cold home.
In many areas of Australia, we don’t require year round heating. In fact in some places, there’s only a period of maybe three, or four months a year that we really call for it.
There are regular space heaters and ‘Wall Furnace Space Heaters’, both of which are designed to address the cold at the source by delivering heat to a specific area. So where central heating is designed to heat your entire home, ‘Space Heating’ allows you to heat certain areas of your home. This is more efficient, more economical and more practical in various scenarios.
Some of the key advantages of Space Heating and Wall Furnace Heating are:
- Low electricity consumption as it runs primarily on gas.
- Sleek and streamlined designs.
- They can run off natural, or propane gas.
- They’re fully flued, which means combustion gasses are vented to atmosphere, not circulated internally (like room heaters).
- Constant, consistent and reliable heat source.
- They’re quiet
- They’re environmentally friendly, as they have low carbon emissions and a low energy consumption.
There are many types of space heaters available, so let Service Today help you chose the right system to keep you warm and comfortable during those cooler months.
