Is a loan I'm taking out for a repair tax deductible?

    Just been advised the ducted reverse cycle system at my investment property is broken. I have to replace the entire unit (although I can keep the same ducts and vents so at least there's that). But the quote for a complete replacement is $9k.

    I've spoken to the bank, they've looked into my situation and happy to extend my current loan so I can pay for this.

    Would the interest be tax deductible since it's for the cost of repairs?
