Keep your house warm in the winter

For their difficulty to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter, South Australian dwellings have been dubbed "glorified tents."

There's no need to go without heat this winter: here are a few simple improvements you can do to make your home warmer and more energy-efficient while also lowering your heating expenditures.

  1. Insulate floors, walls and ceilings

In the winter, the roof of an uninsulated home loses 25–35 percent of its heat. Insulation will keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, so it's a worthwhile investment. If you're going to spend money on heating and cooling, make it as cost-effective as possible by insulate your home.

  1. Use thick curtains that are heavyweight

The cold air surrounding the window and the warm air in the rest of the room are better separated by heavier curtains. In general, the thicker the curtains are, the more effective they are as an insulator. Curtains keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Up to 40% of heating energy can be lost through windows, so close the curtains to keep the heat in. A pelmet will prevent warm air from leaking through the tops of the windows for maximum insulation.

  1. Wool rugs are great insulators to warm feet

Rugs not only add elegance to a room, but they help keep your feet warm, especially if you have tile or hardwood flooring. Wool is a good insulator and helps control temperature and humidity. When the air is humid, it absorbs moisture and releases it when the air is dry. Our Australian wool floor rugs are therefore an excellent choice for keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

  1. Heating and cooling split air conditioners

Winters in South Australia can be bitterly cold, and summer temperatures continue to set new records, necessitating the use of heating and cooling all year. Heating and cooling, on the other hand, might account for 20 to 50% of the energy used in your home, depending on where you reside.

Also, split systems are generally effective. The efficiency of a reverse-cycle air conditioner can range from 300 to 600 percent. This means it can convert one unit of thermal energy into three to six times its original amount of heating (or cooling) energy. In the winter, set your system to 17 to 19 degrees to maximise your energy savings.

  1. Heater will help you keep warm in winter

Electric or central heating is a type of heating that is commonly found in most South Australian homes. The central heating system heats all portions of a house, provides uniform heating throughout, and is usually controlled by a thermostat positioned in the centre.

As the name implies, this type of heating is typically driven by electricity, but it can also be fueled by gas, coal, wood, or even oil. Electricity is the most expensive of these power sources.
