Look at Your Home’s Heating and Insulation to Help Cut The Cost Of Keeping Warm In Winter

Household heating and cooling accounts for 40% of energy use in the average Australian household1. Add to that a nice hot shower or bath and we’re up to 61% of energy use just to keep comfortable and clean.

Finding the most efficient heating system to meet your household needs is an important step towards reducing your energy expenditure. Electric heaters may be relatively cheap to buy, but are costly to run. Gas heaters and some reverse cycle air conditioners use less energy and are more environmentally friendly. If you have a centralised system, be sure to heat only the rooms you use.

You can also cut energy costs by making your home more heat efficient; from simple measures such as using draft excluders to installing effective insulation in the walls and roof space.
