Are there maintenance & servicing costs for Infrared Heaters?
There are no maintenance and servicing costs related with Infrared heating panels.
There are no moving parts or liquids or gases that require any form of annual maintenance contract. The other major benefit of Infrared panels is that in the rare case one should go wrong, you only need replace the one that has gone wrong and don’t lose heat from the entire system (unlike central heating boilers, heat pumps, biomass).
Typical annual maintenance contracts of other heating solutions are*:
- Gas Boiler – $150 p/a
- Reversible Air conditioning – $180 p/a
- Air-water heat pump with zone controls – $290 p/a
- Biomass boiler $540 p/a
