How to Keep Your Home Warm in Winter

We’ll avoid the Game of Thrones cliches and merely say “it is now winter”! Heating is a necessary part of the equation if you want to remain comfortable — it doesn’t take temperatures much less than 18°C to get cold, uncomfortable, or sick. But how can you keep your house warmer for longer this winter?

Melbourne has shivered through the coldest start to winter in 36 years! Although on a global scale, Melbourne isn’t as cold as northern Europe, did you know more people die of cold-related illnesses in Australia than in Sweden? This is largely due to a cavalier attitude towards keeping warm at home — inefficient houses with ineffective heating. So what can you do to keep warm at home this winter?

We love modern and efficient heating systems at Surrey Air, but this is just one part of the bigger picture. Here are other steps homeowners should take to improve the energy efficiency of their houses in all seasons:

1: Let the Sunshine In

Open curtain and blinds during the day. Sunlight can warm surfaces such as concrete and tiles which store the warmth and release it throughout the day.

2: Direct Heat to Where it’s Needed

Direct your heating to where it’s needed and cut down your running costs. All our Brivis ducted heating solutions offer zone control, meaning you can heat up only the parts of your home you need to be warmed.

3: Insulation and Draught Proofing

Our homes may look sealed and secure, but many are anything but. While new houses must meet stringent energy efficiency standards, existing dwellings are more open to the elements than we imagine. Investigate replacing existing insulation if it’s old, and sealing cracks and gaps in doors and windows.

4: Service or Update your Heater

Heating has come a long way since the days of in-wall Vulcan or Pyrox gas units. Modern Brivis ducted heating systems, for instance, offer exceptional performance and energy efficiency. Not only will they heat your home more efficiently, but you will see a difference in your bill at the end of the quarter. Servicing your existing unit can also pay dividends, ensuring it is working to its full potential.

We had an exceptional experience with the professional team who serviced my heater and evaporative air cooler. They were punctual, provided excellent service, and even went the extra mile by fixing a broken tile on our roof. Highly recommended for their professionalism and attention to detail.

Surrey air came a few weeks ago and serviced my reverse cycle air conditioner for me. They were able to fit me in quickly, there was good communication and the technician arrived on time. The technician was helpful going onto the roof and providing me photos to give to the body corporate re other units that needed attending to.

These guys had the most reasonable call out fee, they were able to attend to fix our issue the day after I contacted them and there was great communication throughout the whole process from booking to the eta of the technicians. They arrived and promptly set to work, getting our cooling back up and running. I would recommend them.
