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.
