Home Is Where The Hearth Is

June 04, 2011

Intense heat may be a bit lacking in Australia's property market at present but is not the only place that could do with warming up.

 

Many households are feeling winter's chill already.

 

Even the 'Sunshine State' is feeling it, where the Bureau ofMeteorology predicted 60 to 70 per cent cooler than normal days in southeast Queensland for autumn.


If you are still preparing for the cold, depending on where your home is located decide on whether your need is to spend more effort heating the individual person, a room or two or the whole house. Once you have your priorities, look for the right type of heating and the best fuel source to meet your needs.

 

Heating options include gas, electric, electric 'flame-effect' and reverse cycle air conditioning, for example. The web site, www.choice.com.au, is a good information source.


Environmental sustainability is a very important factor and good insulation is a priority, and even if your house is well insulated and draught proof, adequate ventilation is important otherwise pollutants may accumulate and condensation may cause mould and mildew to grow.
