Renewable, clean, green hydrogen

The future of home heating

Hydrogen H2

Australians love natural gas. Almost half of all household energy in Australia is provided by gas6. It’s a reliable, cost effective energy for the appliances we use for cooking, heating and hot water. The great news is there are changes afoot with plans to rollout green hydrogen into the supply chain to households.

When used as a fuel, hydrogen’s only by-product is water. This flexible, safe and storable fuel can be used to blend with or replace natural gas to heat homes and for cooking. It produces no carbon emissions when used as a fuel. Hydrogen is also hugely versatile and has many other uses in industry and transport, all of which will bring us closer to a net zero emissions future, right here in Australia.

What’s exciting is that hydrogen blended with natural gas is the first step to this zero emissions future in Australia and it is currently being trialed in selected communities across Australia by leading gas suppliers. Importantly it will be rolled out into various gas networks within the next 5 to 10 years.

At Seeley International, we have been working with leading industry authorities to ensure our gas heating products are “hydrogen-ready”, to perform at their best using hydrogen blends to provide the same cosy warmth and whole of home comfort that millions of Australians expect and have been experiencing every winter with Braemar, for generations.

So, when clean and green, renewable hydrogen gas blend is available in your neighbourhood in the near future, you can be assured that your Braemar gas heating system will perform at its best and is compliant with all Australian Safety Standards and regulations3.

Ducted gas heating – star ratings

Star Ratings Explained

Braemar 6 stars icon

Energy efficiency made easy

In Australia, there is an Energy Rating Labelling scheme to help customers choose energy efficient appliances.

1-Star icon

More stars, more savings

The higher the number of stars on the rating label, the more efficient the appliance, meaning greater annual savings on your running costs.

Dollar sign icon

One star = 10% saving4

On average an increase of one star means an average usage saving of approximately 10%.

Highest stars rating icon

Highest star rating

Braemar has developed heaters that measure at a higher efficiency than the maximum 6 star rating stated by the Australian Standard.

7-Star icon

7 Star equivalent explained

Using the Australian Standard system, the Australian Gas Association (AGA) report calculates that Braemar has a 7 star equivalent ducted gas heater.

Check mark tick icon round

Independently tested

All Braemar ducted gas heaters have been independently tested in an AGA NATA accredited testing laboratory.

Ducted gas heating VS reverse cycle heating

Ducted gas heating provides many advantages over reverse cycle

These include:

  • Ducted gas heating offers an instant, cosy heat with less drying of the air. Reverse cycle air conditioning tends to
    produce dry air that can irritate the eyes, nose and skin.
  • Running cost savings.
  • Warms your whole home quickly by producing much warmer air temperatures from your outlets than reverse cycle.
  • Most ducted gas heaters are quieter as they are mounted in the roof space, out of sight and without troublesome
    noise for you or your neighbours.
  • Ducted gas heating operates independently of how cold it gets outside and therefore provides constant, cosy
    performance at all times.
  • Whole of home heating with flexible zoning options.

How does ducted gas heating work?

A ducted gas heating system includes a number of essential components:

  • The heater itself;
  • Insulated ducts that carry air from and to the heater;
  • Vents (also known as grilles or registers) that spread air into individual rooms and return air to the heater; and
  • A thermostat.

Gas heaters work by passing cold air over a heat exchanger, which is warmed by gas combustion. The warmed air is then pushed through ducts into the home via a series of vents in the ceiling or floor. A thermostat is installed in the main living area. This senses the air temperature inside the home and sends a signal to the heater to cycle on, or off, to maintain the desired temperature. The products of combustion are all discharged safely outside the home, via a flue.

7. Zoning is an optional extra cost. TQ3 and TQD3 models: zoning is not available.
8. Actual savings achieved will depend on the number of zones and controls installed, actual zone usage pattern, temperature settings, outside temperature, house size and room layout, house insulation, number of outlets, zone system design. Zoning savings are based on: • A range of assumed zone configurations, usage profiles and zone set-temperatures, with energy consumption reduced due to not heating the whole house all of the time. • Individual zone temperature control (a single MagIQtouch® controller in combination with air temperature sensors, or multiple MagIQtouch® controllers).
9. TQ3 and TQD3 models: night quiet mode and zoning is not available, and fan speed is not user-adjustable.
10. Zoning is an optional extra. Heating in each zone is subject to having air sensors or additional MagIQtouch controllers.
11. Requires MagIQtouch® wall control, MagIQtouch® Wi-Fi smart kit and MagIQtouch® account to operate. Additional costs may apply.
12. Requires Wi-Fi, Amazon Account and a compatible device. Additional costs may apply.
13. Requires Wi-Fi, Google Account and a compatible device. Google and Google Home are trademarks of Google LLC. Additional costs may apply.
14. MagIQtouch Wi-Fi Module is not compatible with MagIQtouch® Wireless Controller. Existing installations including a MagIQtouch controller may need to be upgraded if purchasing the Wi-Fi module. Additional costs may apply.
