When it comes to reducing your energy bills, installing a heat recovery system is a great option for Australian homeowners. Heat Recovery Systems (HRS) are efficient and cost-effective, allowing you to save money in the long-term. But what are the long-term maintenance costs of a heat recovery system?
To answer this question, it’s important to understand the benefits of a HRS before considering the costs. Heat recovery systems are energy efficient systems that capture and recycle heat from sources such as air conditioning units, tumble dryers and other appliances that generate hot air. By capturing and reusing this heat, you can reduce your energy bills by up to 30%. In addition to saving money on energy bills, HRS also help reduce your carbon footprint by reducing emissions from these appliances.
But what about long-term maintenance costs? Generally speaking, there are two types of maintenance costs associated with HRS: installation and regular servicing. Installation costs depend on the size and complexity of the system you choose, but typically range from $2,000 – $10,000 depending on the type of system. This cost is generally a one-time expense unless you decide to upgrade or expand your HRS in the future.
Regular servicing involves regularly checking and cleaning components such as filters or fans in order to make sure your HRS is running optimally. This should be done at least once every two years – however if you live in an area with high levels of dust it may need more frequent cleaning. Servicing typically costs between $200 – $500 per service depending on how complex or large your system is.
It’s important to note that these maintenance costs do not include replacement parts if something breaks down or needs replacing due to wear and tear over time – so it’s important to factor this into your budget too when considering maintenance costs for your heat recovery system.
The good news is that with regular maintenance and servicing you can ensure that your HRS continues running efficiently for years to come – meaning that there’s really no limit on how much money you can save in the long term!
