HOW DO BRAEMAR DUCTED GAS HEATING SYSTEMS WORK?
Each room in your home gets blasted with toasty heated air that travels through the ductwork that’s connected to your Braemar heating system.
The air is warmed up in the ducted system using either the furnace or gas heater. This air is then circulated through the house to warm everything up nicely and then it makes its way back to the heater and goes through a return air grill where it is recycled and heated again.
Braemar heating systems are usually found under the house, outside or in the roof.
BENEFITS OF DUCTED GAS HEATING
- If you look after and maintain your natural gas heating system, it is very safe.
- Gas heaters are efficient because they can reach the required temperature quicker than reverse cycle heating.
- Energy isn’t wasted heating the whole house because you can use flexible zoning and only heat the rooms needed, which can save you up to 60% on running costs.
- The heating and cooling system is versatile and can be installed just about anywhere and in any space.
- The warm air isn’t drying to eyes and skin.
- A Braemar air conditioner emits low CO² so it’s better for the environment.

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO SERVICE YOUR BRAEMAR SYSTEM
- A qualified technician should check your gas heater regularly to give you an idea of how it’s ageing. They will advise when you should replace it with a new Braemar system when it’s near the end of its service life. Rather catch it early than have to struggle if it dies unexpectedly and you’re stuck without until you can replace it.
- Sticking to regular maintenance can prevent breakdowns by fixing the small problems as they arise without leaving them unattended for too long. They will inevitably end up becoming bigger and more expensive problems.
- Regular servicing will give your Braemar system a better chance to reach its full lifespan so you won’t need to waste money on replacing it prematurely.
- Gas leaks can be very dangerous, so have a gas fitter inspect your ducted gas system regularly. Leaks can lead to fires or carbon monoxide poisoning. Canberra Plumbing & Drains will always take extra precautions for your safety.
- Maintenance on a Braemar ducted unit includes thorough cleaning, so after a service the air it circulates will be cleaner too.
WHAT DO I DO IF MY GAS HEATER BREAKS DOWN?
Canberra Plumbing & Drains can save the day with a quick call or click. Our ducted gas heating technicians have been servicing the Canberra, Queanbeyan and Jerrabomberra areas for years and can handle plumbing and gas situations professionally. Don’t waste time with call centres when we provide personal customer service and we’ll have a plumber at your door while you would still have been on hold with another plumbing company.
SOME SIMPLE THINGS YOU CAN DO BEFORE WE ARRIVE
- f your Braemar appliance is producing an unusual smell, turn the gas and power off straight away.
- If your ducted gas heater is making loud and unusual sounds, turn it off at the thermostat.
- If there is smoke coming out of the vents, turn the gas and power off immediately.
- If the controller won’t work, it might need a battery change.
- If you’re still unsure, contact our office and our staff will advise on any queries or concerns you have
WHAT WILL THE BRAEMAR REPAIRER DO WHEN THEY ARE AT MY HOME?
Fluctuating temperatures that occur at the start and at the end of seasons, combined with the extreme temperatures during the seasons’ peak can deteriorate a gas Braemar service.
Our technicians do thorough investigations so that they can make a diagnosis. When they arrive, they will:
- Inspect your Braemar gas heater,
- Test its furnace, controller or thermostat,
- Physically inspect the connections, pressures, time delays, performance of different parts, the heat exchanger condition and any other concerning aspects of the system,
- Make a diagnosis,
- Explain the problem to you in detail and discuss the options you have.
If you need new parts as part of the repairs, Canberra Plumbing & Drains only uses genuine parts. We don’t use any cheap generic parts whatsoever, so customers know that we only stand for great quality. We also provide warranty to support any of the services we provide.
WHY HAS MY HEATER BROKEN?
If you don’t commit to the upkeep and maintenance of your Braemar system, you shouldn’t expect it to function at its full potential. Gas heaters have to work very hard in Canberra in comparison to many other Australian areas and therefore need to be serviced annually. If a Braemar ducted heating unit isn’t serviced as per its manufacturer’s instructions, the lifespan will decrease – especially if you use it during the day and night.
In our experience, we have witnessed heaters less than five years old needing to be replaced. This is normally for these reasons:
- Badly installed Braemar systems when they were still brand new can hinder their performance and longevity with time.
- Lack of maintenance.
- Wear and tear.
- A Braemar system situated outside won’t last as long as a system that’s in the roof or beneath the house because of the Canberra weather conditions in peak summer and winter.
When is it a good time to ask questions?
We train our skilled technicians to answer all questions so they deliver the best customer service. Don’t worry whether your question is silly or too in depth for them – they will happily explain, and in as much detail as you want. Don’t hesitate to ask a question. Our team ensures that you know exactly what needs to be done in your home and how much it will cost.

HOW OFTEN MUST I SERVICE MY BRAEMAR SYSTEM?
Our professionals at Canberra Plumbing & Drains recommend that a gas ducted heating system should be serviced annually. Stick to the service history because Braemar heating units are more likely to be faulty or break down as a result of negligent maintenance. If you don’t maintain your heating system, it can lead to higher operating costs.
We offer value for money services that include cleaning, fine-tuning machinery, and reprogramming the system’s computer. We test for leaks because gases like carbon monoxide can be very dangerous, and we look out for loose wiring because it could be a fire hazard. All precautions are taken so that any aspects that could minimise the system’s safety and performance are seen to so that our valuable customers are safe and sound.
BRAEMAR EVAPORATIVE COOLING SYSTEMS
The Braemar Add On Cooling System combines heating and cooling in one system using the same ductwork. The Braemar Evaporative Cooler uses the heater’s fan to blow the air over ice to cool the air down.
Evaporative cooling systems and ducted air conditioning systems have regular service so that they can continue to cool sufficiently.
Regularly servicing your Braemar system will:
- prolong its lifespan,
- remove build-up and debris,
- identify ageing parts that should be replaced, and
- ensure that it can run safely for another year.
SERVICING AN EVAPORATIVE COOLER
A Braemar evaporative cooler is an elite energy-efficient cooling system.
Evaporative cooling systems expel fresh air through damp pads which filter and cool the air. This cooled air then travels throughout your home via ductwork and into the various rooms.
Evaporative cooling systems are more economical than other air conditioning solutions on the market.
When servicing an evaporative cooler, the technician will:
- wash the filter pads,
- clean the air conditioning base and sump, and
- unblock the water distribution holes so that water filters freely over the pads.
