How to Choose the
Best Heating Solution!

1. Where Do You Need Heating?

Do you want to heat the whole house, or do you want to just heat one or two rooms?

There are two main types of heating styles:

  • Central Heating
  • Room (or Space) Heating

Depending on what areas you decide to heat, will depend on what system will best suit you.


Central heating is best if you have large spaces to heat and multiple rooms. Central heating options have come a long way to the point where you can heat using ZONE technology. This allows you to heat common rooms that you are frequently using instead of the whole house (unused rooms eg. guest rooms).



If you have a small home, or you don’t use a lot of rooms at once, like a large family might, then room by room (or space heating as some refer to it) heating may be your best option. 

2. Types of Fuel

There are several types of heating fuels to choose from, all with their pros and cons. 


Heating systems can generate heat with:

  • Electricity
  • Wood
  • Gas (Natural or LPG)

Choosing one depends on what fuel is available to you.

3. Types of Systems

Central Heating System Types
Room by Room Heating System Types

Frequently Asked Questions

Ducted heating works by using a central heating unit, typically located outside or in a utility area, to generate warm air. This warm air is then distributed throughout the building via a network of ducts that run through walls, ceilings, or floors. The ducts have vents or grilles in each room where the warm air is released, heating the space evenly. A thermostat controls the temperature, allowing users to set their desired comfort level. Ducted heating systems can use various fuel sources such as gas, electricity, or even renewable energy like solar power, providing efficient and customizable heating for homes and buildings.

Gas ducted heating is a central heating system that uses natural gas to produce heat. A gas heating unit burns natural gas in a heat exchanger, generating heat energy. This heat is then distributed through a network of ducts to various rooms in a building, where vents or grilles release the warm air. The system is controlled by a thermostat, allowing users to set and maintain their desired temperature throughout the building.

Ducted reverse cycle heating is a type of central heating system that can also provide cooling. It works by using a single unit to both heat and cool air, offering year-round climate control. The system uses a refrigerant cycle to transfer heat energy, absorbing heat from the outside air to warm the interior during colder months and extracting heat from indoor air to cool the space during warmer months. This versatility makes ducted reverse cycle heating suitable for a wide range of climates and seasons.Gas ducted heating is a central heating system that uses natural gas to produce heat.
