Warm Up This Winter: Your Guide To Cost Effective And Energy Efficient Heating Systems

It’s that time of the year again! Winter has arrived, and Sydney-siders are frantically trying to get their heating systems working efficiently. The SEAA Solution team is equipped to meet all of your electrical needs. To meet the demand, we are now also branching out into heating system installation and maintenance. One of our most exciting projects included research and development into greenhouse heating solutions for a client based in Terry Hills.

If you’re looking for a “local electrician near me” that can help you warm up your home this winter, you’ve come to the right place. We examine some of the most cost-effective and energy-efficient heating systems to warm you up this winter.

Australian homes are reported to be among the coldest in the world and are often built to inadequate thermal performance standards. In areas where cold weather is more common, such as Tasmania, Melbourne or Canberra, houses are built to withstand colder temperatures. Houses in Adelaide, Sydney and Perth, on the other hand, are often very ineffective at retaining heat.

The Most Common Heating Solutions

The most popular heating system in Australia is the conventional air conditioner and heater combination. Typically both systems run separately since heating occurs within a building, while air conditioning cools from an external unit. But one system can do it all.

A reverse cycle air conditioner is a refrigeration cycle that provides cooling and heating solutions by reversing the refrigeration cycle to produce heat in the winter and cool air in the summer. This is an incredibly efficient, versatile and flexible system, but for those who don’t have air-conditioning installed in their homes, the SEAA Solution team can help develop both indoor and outdoor heating solutions that suit your needs and budget.

The Most Energy-Efficient And Cost-Effective Heating Solutions

Given the current economic climate, it’s no surprise that many people are turning to their home electricians to enquire about energy-efficient heating solutions. Many solutions exist, but we have narrowed them down to the following:

  • Ducted Air Conditioner heating works by recycling the air in your home by passing it through the air conditioner system, warming the air up using a heat exchanger. As mentioned above, reverse-cycle split systems have the capacity for high energy efficiency.
  • Underfloor heating can be the most cost-effective heating solution compared to conventional methods, saving you up to 25% on your energy bill, depending on your usage levels. The problem with underfloor heating systems is they often stay dormant during the summer seasons and need a little inspection and troubleshooting to reignite in preparation for the winter. This is where the SEAA Solution team can assist. Our home electrician is fully experienced and equipped for fault-finding and reigniting underfloor heating systems.
