6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, July 5, 2011 HOMELIVING How to heat a home Reverse-cycle airconditioners are a trouble-free way to heat in winter and cool in summer. For families concerned with winter warming, there are many smart and cost- effective ways to keep comfortable. If your home isn't designed for passive heating, the next best option is to choose the right heating to suit your situation. A government initiative, the Living Greener website says your climate, type of heater, how you use it and even its position in the room can make a big difference to your comfort and heating bills. There are many different types of heating, with different sources of energy and levels of efficiency. Central heating can often heat a whole house, whereas space heating heats one or two rooms in use. There are many options in both types -- the best type of heating will depend on your circumstances. Gas heaters and efficient reverse-cycle heat pumps are cheaper to run than standard electric heaters and produce one third the amount of greenhouse gases. They have Energy Rating labels so consumers can see their efficiency at a glance. Hydronic central heating systems are usually gas-fired but may use a wood- fired heater, solar system or heat pump. Heat shifters have a fan and ducting to direct warm air to unheated parts of your home. Wood is a renewable energy source if it is harvested sustainably. Use a low- emission heater, not an open fireplace. Reverse-cycle airconditioners are a trouble-free way to heat in winter and cool in summer. Fujitsu has information on reverse-cycle air conditioning. Consumer inquiries: 1300 882 201 or www.fujitsugeneral.com.au.
