Why combine ducted gas heating with evaporative cooling?

One, heater, one cooler, one control
You can have year round heating and cooling, typically using one controller –ask your specialist dealer to find out more.

Braemar/Breezair evaporative cooling delivers lots of fresh, cool air, using up to 85% less electricity than comparable refrigerated systems, and, Braemar ducted gas heating is Australia’s most efficient heating range, so the combination of these two systems offers a highly energy-efficient all-year-round solution for your home.

Kind to the environment
Evaporative coolers consume only a small proportion of the energy consumed by other comparable systems. By choosing energy-efficient appliances that consume less power, you can help the environment to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases generated by power stations. Evaporative coolers contain no harmful refrigerants. Many of the gases used in refrigerated air conditioners are potent synthetic gases like hydrofluorocarbons and some are also ozone depleting.

Suitable for new or existing ducted gas heating systems
You can install an evaporative air conditioner in addition to an existing Braemar ducted gas heating systems, as well as with a new installation. Find a dealer on our interactive dealer finder for more details.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, you can control both systems using the  MagIQtouch controller. Find out more about the MagIQtouch controller here.

Evaporative cooling requires a larger duct than ducted gas heating, therefore separate ducting is required for each unit. Talk to an authorised dealer to check your home is suitable for this combined heating and cooling solution.

There are many benefits from lower running costs to being better for your health and the environment. Talk to an authorised dealer about what solution is best suited to your needs and your home.

Ever wondered why you feel cooler by the ocean or a river? You feel cooler because as hot air blows across the water, it causes some of the water to evaporate and absorb the heat. The air is cooled by this evaporation process and so becomes a “sea” breeze.

Our evaporative air conditioners work the same way. Hot air enters the cooling unit on your roof where it is filtered and cooled as it passes through specially designed moistened Chillcel® pads. A fan then blows this beautifully cooled air throughout your home. Hot air in the house is forced out through open windows and doors providing your entire home with a complete change of air at least every two minutes.

How does evaporative air conditioning work

A ducted gas heater is a whole-of-home solution that allows you to heat the entire house using just one system. It works by taking air from within the house, instantly heating, then distributing it through a series of ducts and outlets through the ceiling. The actual heater is often located in the roof space, to ensure an ultra-quiet and seamless experience, delivering cosy, warm air throughout the whole home, from the moment it is switched on.

  1. Seeley International’s calculation based on approximate running cost figures from publicly sourced data. Comparison with 1.5 star not zoned ducted refrigerative system in a large size (220m2) 2-star pre 2005 house in a Melbourne climate, cooling all day on the weekend and in the mornings and evenings when internal temperatures are high, and an electricity tariff of 31.9c/kWh. Negligible water cost excluded.
  2. Water use calculations for shower are based on shower water use for 4 people, 7 mins per person per day at 9L/min, over twelve months, calculated at 91,980 L. Water use calculations for Braemar unit LCQ450 evaporative air conditioner over twelve months are 5,405 L.
  3. The warranty has terms and conditions, visit our warranty page for details.
  4. This is an estimate based on the CO2 calculation above and using the data from forestlearning.edu.au, ‘Carbon and its storage in forest and wood products’ article, published 2011. Calculation based on a spotted gum tree that sequestrates 72kg CO2/YR.
  5. Data is based on: Gas price = 2.812 c/MJ • House Size – 240 m² x 2.4m ceiling height • Operation hours per year • 600 hrs (100 days at 6 hrs per day) – based on AS/NZS5263.1.6:2020 House Heat load – 0.2 MJ/h/m³ – based on AS/NZS5263.1.6:2020 • Annual Energy Consumption (AEC) for different star rated heaters based on AS/NZS5263.1.6:2020 • 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 6.8 and 7 star equivalent rated ducted gas heating systems. Note: These figures may vary for individual situations due to variation in factors such as gas price, house size and insulation, heater usage patterns, the area heated, how long you run the heating for, your thermostat settings, your local climate etc.
