Ducted Gas Heating
For whole home heating at an affordable rate, consider ducted heating for your home.
Also called central heating, a ducted heating system runs ductwork through your ceiling. Through this, gas heated air is sent into each room to warm them.
Ducted gas heating is a great way to heat large open spaces as well as individual rooms. It can even be zoned to customise flow rate and temperature to different rooms to meet the whole family’s preferences.
Our Upside Down technicians are fully qualified to install, service and repair any ducted heating and have worked on all the major brands:
- Plus many more!
Are you looking for a climate control system that both heats and cools your home?
Also known as a ductless air conditioner, this system is great for controlling the temperature of enclosed rooms.
Upside Down are fully qualified at installing split systems in your home and can help you pick out the best locations for installation. Regular maintenance of your air conditioner is important to ensure heating and cooling is efficient, the system’s life is extended and no money or energy is wasted. Plus, a well maintained split system could last you 10-15 years.
If your split system has blocked filters, then it will have to work twice as hard just to keep you warm – or cool. Left unmaintained and your split system may spread dust mites and allergens to your family as well.
A split system air conditioner service with Upside Down includes cleaning filters, checking the thermostat, ensuring all internal parts are working, and more. On top of installing and servicing your split system, we can also carry out any repairs and maintenance you need!
Do you need a small and efficient heater for a single room?
Space heaters could be exactly what your home needs this winter. They’re perfectly suited to heating small spaces while providing a toasty, even warmth.
Our Upside Down technicians can work with all space heaters and are familiar with:
- Electric heater
- Gas heater
- Panel heater
- Ceramic heater
- Oil filled heater
- Portable heater
Did you know that nearly 45% of all heating related fires are due to space heaters? It’s important you have space heaters properly installed and serviced by professional technicians so your home and family aren’t at risk of this!
We predominantly work with gas space heaters. Upside Down will run carbon monoxide tests, check for gas leaks, test the thermostat and much, much more.
Gas Log Fires
For those after the aesthetic of a wood log fire without the hassle, look no further than gas log fires.
When it comes to gas log fires, you have two options – freestanding gas log fires and inbuilt gas log fires. Freestanding gas log fires radiate heat from all sides to quickly warm a room. They are easy to install and maintain.
Inbuilt gas log fires are a great option for those looking to maximise floor space and prevent youngsters from running around and potentially hurting themselves. Inbuilt gas heaters can be installed without an existing chimney by running a pipe through your wall to the outside, but this option can be more costly than a flue.
As with all gas systems, gas log fire heaters come with potential hazards if not properly maintained. Upside Down can service your gas log fire for carbon monoxide testing, checking gas pressure and connections, check the flue, test the thermostat and more. Our technicians can work on all brands including:
Gas Wall Furnaces
Are you after a heating system that can efficiently heat 1-2 rooms? Upside Down can install, service and repair wall furnaces to meet your family’s needs.
Wall furnaces are mounted on to your wall and use natural or bottled gas to heat air for a room, or two if it’s double sided!
Like every gas heating system, it is important you have your gas wall heater serviced regularly to prevent gas leaks, carbon monoxide poisoning, and simply to ensure it runs efficiently. Upside Down specialise in wall furnaces and can work on new and old brands alike.
When did you last call in a tradesperson for duct cleaning?
You might be surprised how much dust and debris can accumulate in an air duct, and maybe even how many creatures might have made their way inside but not found the way out.
Your home’s HVAC system works hard to either keep your home cool in the summer, warm in the winter or maybe even both. A dirty air duct can lower your home’s air quality significantly by introducing additional dust, mould and bacteria
Not only is this bad for those who suffer from asthma and allergies, but it can also mean your system is noisier and makes your home dirtier faster. It could even be running less efficiently and costing you more in energy bills
Here at Upside Down we recommend you have air ducts cleaned every 2-5 years to ensure your HVAC system is running efficiently. Depending on how dusty your home can be or whether you have animals which shed a lot of hair, you may need duct cleaning more frequently
Whether you’re after duct cleaning services after the cold months or at the tail-end of summer and autumn, Upside Down has technicians ready for duct cleaning 24/7, every day of the year.
If your home needs one system to heat multiple rooms, consider hydronic heating.
This heating system uses a hydronic boiler to warm water which is transferred to different rooms through pipes. Water is circulated through radiators and warms a room with radiant heat transfer.
You can choose a hydronic heating system to best meet your home’s needs, including:
- Underfloor heating
- Wall and ceiling panels
- Radiator heating
Gas is traditionally used to heat the hydronic supply. But, with technological advances, you can now have electric hydronic heating or even solar hydronic heating
Hydronic heating comes with a few major benefits over other heating systems. It’s environmentally friendly and also incredibly efficient and cost-effective. With hydronic heating, you no longer need to decide between warming your home and potentially spreading dust and allergens which trigger asthma attacks or allergies.
Upside Down can check your pipes, radiators, gas pressure and connections, as well as test the thermostat. This will ensure your hydronic heating system is in top working order and extend its lifetime.
Heating Installation, Services and Repairs
Don’t get heated over a broken heating system. Contact Upside Down for a fully qualified technician to come to your home so you can chill out in the warmth in no time.
We get asked this question all the time, and every time we have to say – well, it depends. Picking out a heating system is like picking a new car. It all depends on your needs, preferences, budget, and so many more factors.
You can research the pros and cons by yourself or consult a professional air conditioner technician to help the process along.
The great debate – electric or gas. Gas has always been known as the more efficient option, but with recent price hikes and limited supply, many of us are questioning whether it really is the best.
Newer electric heating systems are proving to be more energy efficient and also less environmentally damaging. Discussing your options with an air conditioner technician will help to determine which energy source is best suited for your home and needs.
