Replacing Your Gas Ducted Heater

Your gas ducted heating unit is an important part of your home’s infrastructure that you likely don’t think about very often (especially during the summer months). Once it begins to age and break down, however, it can quickly become a costly problem that you need to stay on top of or risk your home becoming less and less comfortable.

Common Faults

The key to any long-lasting system is to stay on top of a regular maintenance schedule that will keep your ducted heating unit running as smoothly as possible for as long as possible.

A ducted heating unit is made up of several key components, each of which needs to be operating as efficiently as possible in order for your system to function properly. Some of these components that are prone to breaking down over time are:

  • Doesn’t light – which could be due to the gas valve, sparker, or flame sense control board.
  • Overheating – which could be due to a blocked return air filter, room fan capacitor failing control board failure, room air fan motor deceased, ducts closed collapsed, blocked
  • Failing to ignite which could be due to combustion fan failure, heat exchanger failure, safety devices tripping, blocked flu, or failed pressure switches.

With simple monitoring, the expert team at Melbourne Heating & Cooling will keep your repair costs low and make sure you have plenty of time to prepare for your system inevitably breaking down, rather than having to scramble to replace it in the dead of winter.

Why Should You Upgrade Your Ducted Heater?

Repairing your ducted heating system as it ages is the easiest path, but can also be the most expensive. As your unit breaks down naturally over time, these costs will become more and more frequent. A lot of parts can be repaired or replaced, but as the heater gets older, the original parts become unavailable, and upgrade kits become the only option – which are usually quite expensive.

A wiser path is to upgrade your ducted heating unit before it forces your hand (after years of costly repairs and callouts). The benefits of installing a new system are numerous, including:

  • Increased energy efficiency in newer models
  • Lower energy bills
  • Cheaper in the long run than constant repairs
  • Safer for you and your family than an older model

The trained professionals at Melbourne Heating & Cooling can help you decide if upgrading your unit is the right choice for you.
