Gas Ducted Heating Cost
The overall gas ducted heating cost is based on the brand and model of system you choose, the type of ducting (sheet metal or fibreboard), whether a cooling add-on is required and the installation cost. A good rule of thumb is to shop around for both a supply and installation quote to get the best possible price. When comparing quotes, make sure the installer is fully licensed to perform electrical and gas work in your home or business, and that they have a history of completing high quality gas heater installations. Improper installation can result in costly problems down the track, and may even lead to the need for premature replacement or repair.
What is good heating system?
The energy consumption of your ducted gas heater will also influence its running costs. The energy star rating on the system will indicate how efficient it is, with systems rated higher being more cost-effective to run. You can calculate your approximate annual operating costs by multiplying the kilowatt hours (kWh) consumption of the system with the hourly energy usage values on your recent gas bill in megajoules (MJ/h).
If you are considering a gas ducted heating installation, keep in mind that it is not only an investment in the warmth and comfort of your home or office, but also an investment in your long-term energy bills. Consider your heating needs and any future plans for expansion, and choose a system that is capable of meeting your requirements.
