Ducted Gas Heating

Ducted gas heating is the easiest, most comfortable way to heat your entire home, and is the ultimate in comfort, safety, reliability and energy efficiency. A ducted gas heater is a whole of home solution that allows you to heat the whole house using just one system. It works by taking air from within the house, heating it then distributing through a series of duct work and outlets in the roof.

Braemar delivers uncompromised quality with a nearly 90 year history of Braemar excellence!

The Renewable Gas Future is Coming

The future of home heating

Gas has a future, and that future is clean and green.

The answer is embracing the transition from natural gas to green hydrogen or renewable gas like biomethane. Using the infrastructure and appliances we already have, in a cleaner, greener way. This is a transition already under way in Australia.

Star Ratings Explained

Use less energy and save

The star rating on your ducted gas heater helps you compare
how much gas your heater will use.

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 equivalent2 explained

Using the Australian Standard system, the Australian Gas Association (AGA) report calculates that our 7 star equivalent2 is the highest efficiency star rating of any gas heater on the market.

Independently tested

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

Energy efficiency made easy

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

More stars, more savings

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

One star = 10% saving1

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

Saving over 1 and 5 years, compared to a 3 star heater

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

The higher the number of stars, the more efficient the appliance, meaning greater annual savings on your running costs. Braemar is the only gas heater brand in Australia that has a 7 star equivalent star rating.

Braemar ducted gas heating running costs are lower than electric heating running costs. With Braemar gas heating, the modulating gas control in conjunction with its micro-processor-controlled burner, efficiently burns the right amount of gas for any given situation. It can burn from 100% of the gas rate all the way down to a mere 6% of the gas rate, on our 7 star equivalent¹ heater range, with zoning, saving lots of money on gas usage. Gas heaters can heat up rooms quicker and more efficiently than whole of home electric heaters.

¹ Star rating equivalent. Based on Australian Gas Association’s results calculated in accordance with the testing methodology in AS/NZS5263.1.6:2020.

Gas heaters are extremely safe, so long as they are maintained and serviced regularly. A flued gas heater is considered to be safer than an unflued gas heater.   

Renewable gas refers to gaseous fuels produced from renewable sources or sustainable processes. Common forms of renewable gas include renewable hydrogen and biomethane, which can be used in the same way as natural gas is today. Both renewable hydrogen and biomethane have the advantage of being produced from sustainable and carbon-neutral sources. By blending and ultimately replacing natural gas with renewable gas options, existing infrastructure can continue to be used and people can continue to use gas.  Learn more: Australian Gas Networks - Renewable Gas.

‍Yes, gas heaters do need to be serviced at least once every two years to ensure optimum operation and safety. This work should only be carried out by a licensed and qualified gas fitter. However, some heaters may need more frequent servicing due to more frequent use, or the environment they operate in. Please contact your local service agent for their recommendation.

Heaters do not last forever. Some older heaters cannot be repaired for safety reasons and sometimes spare parts are not available. If your heater is very old (around 15 to 20 years), it may be worthwhile having a chat with your service agent, to get their recommendation. Replacing an older heater will give you access to the latest technology, which is also more energy efficient (up to 7 star equivalent1 energy efficiency rating), saving you significant money on the running costs.

¹ Star rating equivalent. Based on Australian Gas Association’s results calculated in accordance with the testing methodology in AS/NZS5263.1.6:2020.

If you use a ducted gas heater or gas wall furnace to heat your home, it won’t work without electricity. Although they use gas as a primary source of fuel, the internal components, such as the fan, require electricity to function.

Yes, by using a controller with the functionality to set different temperatures in designated zones within the house. Simply discuss which rooms can be included in each heating zone, when organising installation of your gas heating system.

  1. 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.
  2. Star rating equivalent. Based on Australian Gas Association’s results calculated in accordance with the testing methodology in AS/NZS5263.1.6:2020.
  3. Only Braemar extra air model heaters are designed to be paired with Braemar add-on cooling systems. For the Add-on cooling range, the InvertairTM indoor units are manufactured in Australia (from local and imported components).
  4. Applicable to installations where airflow requirements and duct design are suitable. Not all models of Braemar ducted gas heaters are suitable for add-on cooling, so please check with the dealer.
  5. 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)
