HOW TO KEEP COSTS DOWN THINK SMART AROUND HOME Janita Singh Rinnai's Sapphire has a 4+ Star Energy rating and the latest clean burning technology. MANY SOLUTIONS There are many heating systems available and choosing one can be daunting. Match your requirements with the right product. Understanding home heat loss characteristics will help in buying the correct powered heater. If your heater is to be used every day over the cooler months, then it s worth investing in something that uses clean burning energy and is energy efficient. For larger areas used regularly, invest in an efficient gas heater that gives more heat at lower running costs. It produces three times less green house gas emissions compared to electric heaters. Today s heaters are smart and very energy efficient. Check out the star rating --- the more the merrier. Many come with automatic timers and other smart features. HEATING Details: Call 1300 555 545 or visit rinnai.com.au HEATING and cooling amounts to about 23 per cent of household energy use --- second only to hot water. Heating is a major ex- pense in winter but simple tips can keep costs down. Rinnai Australia heating product manager Lorraine Ong says think smart and households can save as much as 10 per cent heat loss with simple ways, such as having lined drapes over windows or insulating walls, ceiling and floors. Switching off the heater when leaving the home will save energy and greenhouse gas emissions. ''If you want your home to be toasty when you arrive after a day out, look for models with intelligent ti- mers that switch on and off as required,'' said Ms Ong. Stop draughts by sealing any cracks, gaps and block- ing unnecessary vents, as well as installing a revers- ible ceiling fan, which gently pushes the heat back down into the room where needed. Always check en- ergy rating labels. Seen any great ideas?
