Gas Ducted Heating Replacement refers to removing your existing gas heater unit and providing a changeover with a new gas heater unit using the existing ductworks, return air grill and vent registers.

Gas Ducted Heating Replace or Repair?

While there are no set rules and each situation is different, there are some factors to consider when deciding between gas heater repair or replacement:

  • How Old is Your Heater?

    With regular servicing, a Gas Ducted Heater system has an average lifespan of 10-20 years. If your heater is over 15 years old and has not been well maintained, it could be more economical to upgrade your Gas Heating system to a new unit instead of repairing it.

  • Is Your Gas Bill Increasing?

    As your gas heater ages, it will lose efficiency, resulting in higher energy consumption. If you notice a significant increase in your utility bills, you should consider upgrading your old heater with a higher Energy Star Rating gas heater that can potentially reduce your bills by up to 50%.

  • Are You Repairing Your Heater Frequently?

    If your gas heater is frequently breaking down, this could indicate that your heater is probably not worth repairing. Replacing it with a new unit can be more expensive upfront but will save you money on repair and utility bills in the long run.

Why Upgrade Your Gas Ducted Heating System?

While Gas Ducted Heating can be the most affordable heating option in Melbourne, you should know that not all gas heaters are equal when it comes to performance – especially when comparing an old gas heater with a new Gas Ducted Heating system!
Below are some of the benefits of investing in a new heating system:

  • Save Money on Bills

    Modern models of gas heaters are much more energy efficient, which means they can reduce power consumption and lower your gas bills!

  • Save Money On Repairs

    Say goodbye to endless on-going repairs. A new heater will save you time and money to repair and will always be ready for you to use in winter.

  • Better Performance

    Old heaters may struggle to distribute heat evenly and take longer to get the job done. A changeover gas heater can boost performance for greater efficiency.

Roger from ComfyHome replaced my Brivis heater today and he did an outstanding job. I was informed of the process of the installation and covid safety protocol. Also, I couldn’t be happier with their exceptional after-sale service. They’re friendly & lovely people to deal with! 100% highly recommended!

Great service this afternoon from Alex for my gas heater changeover. He is professional, polite, respectful and efficient. The new unit was installed in no time! The lady on the phone was friendly and informative as well. It is definitely the most trustworthy business I have ever come across in Melbourne!

Reviewer icon Lynda McMillian From "Watsonia - Melbourne"

Thank you to Robert for the text message reminder to the schedule, I almost forgot. The new changeover heater is now working wonderfully and they even cleaned up and took away the old unit as well. My family is extremely happy with the beautiful installation team at ComfyHome Heating & Cooling.
