HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, June 9, 2009 3 Best ways to keep chill at bay HOMELIVING As the weather cools, you are probably thinking about how you are going to stay warm this winter. If you are buying a new heater, take some time to consider your options, EnergyAustralia energy-efficiency expert Paul Myors says. ''It's a decision that could make a huge difference to your energy bills and greenhouse impact,'' Mr Myors says. Got a big room? Gas heaters and reverse-cycle airconditioners can be expensive but they provide more heat at a lower running cost. ''It is important to get expert advice to find the right size for your home and check out the star-rating labels,'' Mr Myors says. Portable electric heaters are cheap to buy but expensive to run. In fact, leaving a portable electric heater running for four hours every evening over winter can cost you up to $100 and will generate up to 750kg of carbon dioxide emissions. But these heaters do have their place for heating a small space. Radiant heaters are a good option for heating one person rather than a whole room. Fan and convection heaters can also be effective for heating a small room. Oil column heaters are slow to heat but are safe to run unattended -- a good option if you have children. ''Regardless of the type of heater you choose, it's important to use it efficiently,'' Mr Myors says. Zone your home by shutting doors and only heat occupied areas. Set thermostats between 18C and 21C and make sure you switch the heater off when it's not needed. ''One of the most cost-effective ways to stay warm is to pull on your favourite jumper, cosy thick socks and woolly slippers to keep the cold chills at bay,'' Mr Myors says.
