EfficiencyHigh efficiency in converting electricity to heat; efficiency gains when using renewable energy sources.Efficient in terms of heat output but inherently less efficient in energy use compared to electric heating.
Environmental ImpactReduced carbon footprint when powered by renewable energy sources, including solar.Higher emissions from burning natural gas, impacting carbon footprint.
MaintenanceLower maintenance needs due to fewer moving parts and no combustion process.Requires regular maintenance for safety and efficiency, including system checks and venting.
InstallationInstallation complexity and costs can vary; simpler in properties already equipped with an electrical infrastructure.Requires access to gas lines, potentially complicating installation in areas without existing infrastructure.
LifespanTypically longer lifespan due to less mechanical wear.May have a shorter lifespan due to the mechanical wear and tear from combustion processes.
Heating QualityConsistent and easily controlled heating, but effectiveness can vary based on the electricity source's reliability.Known for quick and efficient heating, often providing a type of warmth considered more comfortable.
SafetyGenerally considered safer due to the absence of combustion-related risks.Risks associated with gas leaks and carbon monoxide, necessitating safety measures like detectors.

A Wide Range of Systems for Heating and Cooling in Vermont and Nearby

Cooling Systems in Vermont

A cooling system is essential for Melbourne Summers. They are often dry and uncomfortable, and fans aren’t enough to get you through the heat. Australian Climate Systems has a wide range of air-conditioners to help you combat Summer. Choose from central cooling systems like ducted evaporative systems, hi-wall and multi-split systems, and add-on cooling.

Ducted Evaporative Cooling Installation, Repair, and Servicing

For an eco-friendly and reliable ducted cooling solution, get an evaporative system for your home or office. Evaporative cooling works by refreshing the air after each cycle, so it gives off a natural coolness in open areas. Because of its constant cycling, evaporative cooling systems are great for asthma and hay fever sufferers as harmful dust particles are always filtered out.

Hi-Wall Split System Installation, Repair, and Servicing

Get convenience and style with a hi-wall split system. Hi-wall split systems are a well-known cooling solution that are a typical fixture in households. That’s because they are easy to use and have a compact unit for indoor use that can be placed anywhere on the wall to suit the layout of any room or office.

Multi Split System Installation, Repair, and Servicing

What makes multi-split systems stand out from other air-conditioners is that the single unit can provide cooling for up to 5 different systems. It also suits homes or offices with limited outdoor area, as an individual outdoor unit takes up little space. Keep everyone cool this summer with a powerful multi-split system.

Installation, Repair, and Servicing for Ducted Refrigerated Systems

Central cooling is a great solution for those who don’t want multiple units in their home or office. Since you’re able to set the temperature through a single machine, you’re not left with the hassle of adjusting each air-conditioner in multiple rooms. A ducted refrigerated system gives control to set different temperatures for each room, so you have varied comfort throughout the home or office.

Installation, Repair, and Servicing for Add-on Cooling

Add-on systems are the ideal cooling solution for those who already have a ducted gas heater. Add-on cooling adds flexibility to your current gas ducted heater. By using the same inbuilt system, you’re able to get refrigerated air-conditioning.

Heating Systems in Vermont

You can’t get through Melbourne’s severe winters without a decent heating system. Stay cosy this Winter with one of our trustworthy heating services. Fit your home or office with a heating unit from our vast selection of gas, electric and water-based heaters.

Gas Ducted Central Heating Services, Repairs and Installations

Central heating works the same as central cooling. Gas ducted heating allows you full access to your home’s set temperature. But unlike electric-powered heaters, central gas heating is also an energy-efficient way to stay warm. Therefore, you’re able to get through Winter while saving money on heating costs.

Gas Log Fire Installation, Repair, and Servicing

Want the rustic feel and warmth of a fireplace but don’t want the hassle of wood-fuelled heating? A gas log fire is a great compromise of style and warmth. The romantic aesthetic of a gas log fire is a great way to warm up any room in your household or office. They are either in-built or externally fixed to suit the interior design of a room.

Installation, Repair, and Servicing for Gas Space Heating

After a standalone heater that fits into any room? A gas space heater is a versatile heating solution. The systems are available in different sizes so it can suit any room in the home or office. Since gas is a cheaper alternative to electric power, you’ll be able to keep cosy at home or work while saving money.

Hydronic Heating Installation, Repair, and Servicing

Water-based heating is a modern solution to those cold winter nights. Hydronic heaters use the latest thermostat technology through a panel or slab. Instead of relying solely on gas or electricity, a hydronic heater boils water in its unit to keep the warmth in a room. It’s an eco- and allergen-friendly solution for those after the latest technology in heating.

Outdoor Heating Installation, Repair, and Servicing

Heaters aren’t just for indoor use. A variety of areas can benefit from outdoor heating. Australian Climate Systems install heat strips to outdoor ceilings so you can stay warm outside. Have a heat strip for your home or office. You can stay cosy on your patio or balcony. You can also have a heat strip for business areas like alfresco dining, sidewalk cafes and smoking areas.

Electric Panel Heating Installation, Repair, and Servicing

After a heating solution for a small office space or bedroom? Don’t let your heater get in the way. An electric panel heater is a compact way to heat up a room that lacks space. The slim electric panels are either portable or fixed onto the wall. They are also low maintenance and cost-effective due to their small size.

“I had a few people coming from different companies to quote on the replacement of my mum's existing ducted heating system. I must say that Australian Climate systems sales who came to us was the most knowledgeable and he strongly recommended that we have the air return grille changed as per standard which the previous sales who came to my mum's premise didn't mention at all. Their installation worker came on schedule and worked with high efficiency. Satisfied customer.”
