Winter Heating Quick Guide - Practical Solutions for Highly Efficient Heating from G-Store

Heating Consumes 38% of energy use

Choose a Heating system or combined Heating/Cooling System that suits you best.


Heating alone consumes around 30% of your annual energy use on average, more in southern states. Heating and Cooling combined around 40% in total. Highly efficient heating alone makes a huge 4-Star Savings impact on power or gas bills.

You may already have 5-Star Heating Savings installed

Some homes already have the cheapest heating option on their wall but going unused during winter. Recent inverter model reverse cycle air-conditioners deliver heat to your home in the most economical way for all Australian cities as far south as Hobart*.

In the heating cycle, the heat pump system, pumps concentrated heat extracted from the outside air, inside to warm your room to the desired temperature. You are just using renewable solar heat from the atmosphere in a condensed form.

This is not new, it works just like a fridge which extracts the heat from air inside the fridge to keep it as cold. The process has just become dramatically more efficient in the last few years.

With the most efficient electric radiator, you put a kilowatt of electricity for a kilowatt of heat out. Because a heat pump is so much better at extracting heat from the ambient air, a kilowatt of electricity can typically provide 4 or 5 kilowatts of heat on a good system, up to almost 6 kilowatts on the latest high efficiency models.

The latest research shows this is even more efficient than the best Gas Ducted systems at heating a typical Australian home and even with power from the grid at full cost, cheaper to run with less greenhouse gases generated. The Melbourne Energy Institute at Melbourne University estimates savings in a large home of up to $658 a year.

G-Store 8 Star Savings SolutionsG-Store of course can go one better with our 8-Star Savings packages combining a home solar power with 2, 3 or 4 heating-cooling air conditioners for room by room climate control. For an old style household this typically reduces your energy bills by 70 to 80% with further potential reductions in future from adding solar battery storage as it becomes more economical.

The most energy efficient forms of gas heating may cost a little more upfront. They are built using the latest research and technology, often to higher standards using top quality parts and with more rigorous testing. Over the longer term they use less energy to produce the same amount heat. In the face of rising energy costs the savings can really add up. With gas systems you save around 10% on costs for each star rating improvement, so a 6 star will use 30% less energy than a 3 star unit.
