Despite Australia being associated with sweltering hot weather, many citizens can attest to the fact that the winters can be brutally cold. Hence, while a good air conditioning system is invaluable during the warmer months, an efficient heating system is just as important once the temperatures drop. So when you are installing a heating system for the first time, you must acquaint yourself with the different options available so that you can be confident in your choice.

Although gas heating has been around for decades, it remains a relevant solution for many Aussie homeowners, and this can be credited to the benefits that it offers. But how can you discern if it will be right for your needs? To help you with that, keep reading for a simplified guide on what every homeowner needs to know about gas heating.

What are the different types of gas available?

The first thing that you should know when contemplating getting gas heating for your residence is that there are two main types available to you. The first. And the most commonly employed type of gas is LPG. Also referred to as propane gas, this option is extracted during oil refining processes. It is then bottled, which makes it a portable option that is delivered directly to you. In addition to being convenient, its portability makes it viable for applications other than heating. Moreover, it is an affordable solution.

The second type of gas that you could consider is natural gas. Extracted from fossil fuels, natural gas will minimise your home's carbon footprint since it has limited carbon emissions. Moreover, its heating capacity tends to be higher than that of LPG, which makes it ideal for large houses.

Which gas heating system will be best for your home?

The second thing that you should know when deliberating on gas heating for your home is that it is available in an array of options. Thus, your choice will ultimately depend on your primary needs. It is also worth pointing out that a selection of different types makes it easy for varying needs to be met, so you are highly likely to find a gas heating system that is suited to your home.

If you do not have a central heating system and would prefer a portable solution, a space heater would be a great investment. The compact nature of these heaters allows you to heat rooms as they are in use. Furnaces, on the other hand, are custom fit in your home, making them perfect for individuals that have a flair for stylish interior décor. Further options that you can consider when looking for a gas heating system include hydronic heaters, ducted heating and so on.

Installing and Maintaining an HVAC System

Hello there, welcome to my blog. My name is Andrew and this blog is going to be about how to install and maintain HVAC systems. When I purchased a new office space in downtown Perth, I didn't have the first idea about HVAC systems. I knew that I would need one, as I couldn't expect my staff to work away in the heat of an Australian summer without any air conditioning. I contacted an HVAC contractor who advised me on the best type of system to install. He also gave me some top tips on how I could keep the HVAC system in good condition.
