The most energy efficient way to heat your home.

Published: August 06, 2018 Last Updated: May 16, 2018

What is the most energy efficient way to heat your home? Let Av take you through some of the different methods available and explain which one is the best.

Transcript

Lee : With winter fast approaching homeowners are looking at ways to stay warm Av what's the best way?

Av : Well Lee one of the first steps is to ensure your walls and ceiling is insulated. If a home is properly insulated it's much easier to maintain the temperature.

Lee : And after insulation is installed what are the best options for heating?

Av : A lot of people don't realize that your reverse cycle air conditioning system is one of the most energy efficient ways to maintain that temperature.

Lee : How is the reverse cycle air conditioner more efficient?

Av : Well Lee instead of using evergy to create heat, it captures the heat from the outside and brings it inside.

Lee : What about fan heaters or gas heating?

Av : Well electrical fan heaters are notoriously expensive and dangerous that's why we advise against them. In 2016 a study by the University of Melbourne showed that the gas heaters are less efficient than your split cycle air conditioning systems.

Lee : Okay so how do we change our AC unit from summer to winter settings?

Av : Well it's simple actually if we press the mode button it'll change the symbol from snowflake to sun. Then we simply set the desired temperature.

Lee : What's the most efficient temperature to run your house during the cool winter nights in South East Queensland?

Lee : Well it's up to the individuals comfort level but just remember, the lower the temperature the more energy-efficient will be for you.
