When Does My Gas Ducted Heater Need a Service?

People ask us all the time how often they should get their ducted heating serviced. And usually, we are asked because their heater has shut down due to an issue that would have been avoidable with regular servicing. It’s really common for homeowners to overlook regular ducted heating maintenance as they either think it’s too expensive or not needed. But regular servicing of your heating will stop big money problems from occurring and save your power bills from being too expensive every year. And trust us there is nothing worse than freezing overnight in Melbourne’s Winter because your heater stopped working!

The right time to service your heater is once every two years. This gives your heater a longer lifespan and better power efficiency.

Ducted heating systems are not a cheap investment, so they are worth the time and money in keeping them in tip-top shape. Some common issues caused by poorly serviced heaters are;

  • Increased power bills because of more energy used to power the system
  • Parts breaking down causing the heater to stop working
  • Costly repairs and part replacement that could have been avoided
  • Loose roof duct or floor duct causing heat to escape under the house or into the roof
  • Smelly air coming out from the vents
  • Dust build up in the system
  • Fire safety issues

A regular service (every 2 years) will prevent costly issues and is recommended by heater manufacturers also. Some of the issues listed are minor but left over time become a dangerous problem. And a regular gas heater service means smaller parts can be repaired or replaced before they turn into a system-wide breakdown costing thousands. Simple replacement of filters or filter cleaning is an example of something we attend to during a service, that if left for years turns into an expensive fix.

Contact our Plumbing team for more information or to make a booking to service your heater. Keep toasty warm and safe during the freezing Winter weather and make sure your power bills don’t go up because your heater isn’t working at its best!
