Heating And Cooling Services
We can help you to find the most efficient and effective ways to warm your home in winter, and to keep it cooler in the summer. We also provide the routine servicing and testing that helps to keep your systems operating safely.
Gas ducted heating
Gas ducted heating remains a popular choice, due to the ease and efficiency with which it can heat the whole home. The team from Grech can service your existing system, or design a new ducted system for your new home or home renovation.
Our team can work with you to determine whether floor vents, ceiling or wall diffusers will serve your home best. This may depend on the structure and layout of your home, or on your usage requirements for the ducted system.
Gas ducted heating systems give homeowners wonderful control over their home’s heating, and with regular servicing and occasional repair and maintenance work, they can continue to operate effectively, and to stand the test of time.
Hydronic heating is best installed when building new, however there are now a number of clever adaptations on the market that allow various forms of hydronic and underfloor heating to be retrofitted within an existing home.
Hydronic heating is well known as an option that is efficient, cost-effective, comfortable, and safe for the whole family. Because hydronic heating uses radiant heat, and operates through transported water, rather than air, you will find that you can heat your entire home for less.
Heat naturally rises, so the heat from hydronic radiator panels or underfloor heating will rise gently to heat the whole room, rather than being forced down from a wall or ceiling mounted air powered system.
Allergy sufferers and asthmatics are also sure to appreciate that there is no air, and thus no dust or allergens being blown about the room with a hydronic heating system.
Whether you choose an underfloor system, a wall panel system, or a combination of the two for your home, we can design, install, and maintain a hydronic heating system that meets your needs.
Evaporative cooling feels like a gentle sea breeze, and is a favourite amongst homeowners who dislike the ‘dry’ feeling of traditional air conditioning. Many of our customers report that evaporative cooling is better for their dry eyes, sensitive skin, or allergies. Others simply appreciate this efficient and effective system, and the option to open up their home on hot days without compromising on the running efficiency of their cooling system.
With the central cooling unit placed out of the way on top of the roof, and a system of discreet ducts and outlets, evaporative cooling is an unobtrusive system that will work equally well in older or more modern homes.
By installing a humidifier on your ducted system, you can get rid of the feeling of uncomfortable dry air. This can be useful when creating a healthier environment for indoor plants, or making sure the room is comfortable for those with allergies or dry and itchy skin.
Point-of-use humidifiers can be installed to provide humidity control for a single room, whereas whole-system models will connect to the building’s HVAC system – providing humidity regulation throughout a residential, commercial, or industrial building.
We work with industry-leading brands such as Lennox, to bring you the very best in indoor air quality control.
Carbon monoxide testing and gas heater servicing
It is important to have your gas heater regularly inspected for safety. For landlords and agents, this will be a requirement.
Energy Safe Victoria recommends that gas heaters are serviced at least once every two years by a qualified gasfitter, and that all homeowners, tenants, landlords, and real estate agents take responsibility to ensure this happens in any property where a gas heater is used.
Carbon monoxide spillage from gas heaters poses serious health risks, and can prove fatal. Carbon monoxide safety programs and gas heater regulations are in place to keep everyone safe. You can check whether a heater in your property has been affected by a safety alert. You can also ensure that your home has adequate ventilation, and that exhaust fans are not creating dangerous negative pressure environments within the home.
Carbon monoxide alarms can be purchased and installed as an additional safeguard in the case of carbon monoxide spillage from a gas heater. As carbon monoxide gas is both invisible and odourless, these alarms can provide a vital first line of defence for residents.
If you have any further questions regarding carbon monoxide and gas heater safety, then you can contact Energy Safe Victoria, the Victorian Building Authority, or the team at Grech Heating and Cooling Systems.
