After much searching on-line I have just been reading some useful forum threads around the area of gas central heating vs Heat Pumps.
I'm in the process of deciding on a heating option for our open plan lounge dining room area with around 55sqm of floor space, it has high ceilings at 3m. Until a few days ago we were convinced a Heat Pump was the best option but then had an installer suggest gas as an option. We already have gas cooking and hot water.
The installation costs are almost identical for gas heater or heat pump so I have been trying to calculate the relative running costs to see which option comes out cheaper. Over a 15 year period I have the gas heater at about $1000 more to run.
I wondered what experiences other forum users had and especially if anybody has switched from gas to heat pump or vice versa because of cost savings or any other benefits.
Thanks for your advice and help
