I'd apreciate your advice.
We are interested in buying a house (recently built), 40sq and double storey. It has a electric reverse cycle heating/cooling unit, with zoning.
I have always been a gas ducted heating fan (bc its cheaper to run - given we live in Melbourne and its cold).
1. I was wondering is it possible to keep the current ducts (which are zoned) and replace the unit with a gas ducted unit with or without electric cooling?
2. Is it possible with some reverse cycle units to keep that on and just use the cooling component with the gas ducted?
3. How much does a good effiicient gas unit cost, and how much would it cost to install?
Very grateful for your replies.

Generally the ducts for heating are smaller than reverse cycle. Heating ducts are usually 150 or 200mm diameter. It can be done where they join the ducts just near the grille, but it is a bit of a cheap way of doing things in my opinion.
Personally, i would add a complete new gas system on with it's own ducts and outlets if you wanted to do this option.
Not sure on costs, but around $3-5K i think for gas ducted using all new equipment.
