When it comes to heating your home, preparing the house before winter (or before the cold weather arrives) can lead to energy and budget savings. But fear not – it’s not too late.
John Bourke from Fujitsu General Australia provided expert tips on how to improve efficiency when heating the home with reverse cycle air conditioning.
“During regular use, filters within the air conditioning unit accumulate dust, which, if left uncleaned, can clog the indoor unit reducing air flow and diminishing performance of the air conditioner.
“Clean dust from reusable filters with a vacuum cleaner or wash with mild detergent and warm water each month.
“Ensure the filter is completely dry before replacing.
“For disposable filters, replace as required according to manufacturer's instructions.
“Dust along the indoor unit grilles and the louvers can also be vacuumed and wiped with a damp cloth.”
Out with the old, in with the new
“With the rising cost of energy it may be worthwhile taking a look at how energy efficient the existing air conditioning unit is.
Replacing the system with a new, more technologically advanced model, can help reduce energy consumption and the household spend on power.
“Fujitsu General reverse cycle air conditioning systems are full of smart features to assist in managing energy consumption while providing a comfortable home environment.”
Reverse cycle all year round
“Operating an air conditioning system in summer, and a different heating appliance in winter, can be an inefficient way to remain comfortable all year round.
Using two separate systems to heat and cool the home may contribute to more energy consumption, while storing a separate heating unit through the warmer months can impact on valuable storage space.
“Upgrading to a Fujitsu General reverse cycle air conditioning system provides efficient heating and cooling from one single system, while maintaining year round comfort and control.”
Full control with Multi Split Systems
“For those seeking to heat more than one room simultaneously, a reverse cycle multi split system is an ideal solution.
“A multi split system is a non-ducted air conditioning option, which can have up to six indoor units linked to one compact outdoor unit.
“Each unit can be controlled separately using individual remotes and the 5/6 room multi system allows for each indoor unit to be monitored and controlled individually or simultaneously via the optional large backlit LCD central controller. “
