The Most Energy Efficient Ways To Heat Your Home In Winter 2024 Guide

When it comes to selecting the ideal heating system for your home, it’s important to take various factors into consideration. These factors can include the size of your living space, the number of people in your household, as well as your preferences for energy efficiency and comfort. By carefully weighing these considerations, you can make an informed decision that ensures optimal warmth throughout your home during the colder months. And, sure, those in New Zealand are going to laugh at the residents in Mackay saying they’re cold in winter. But when you’re used to the hot tropical summer months, winter can surprise you!

The most efficient ways to heat your home in winter

When it comes to powering heaters, there are several fuel options available, each with its own level of energy efficiency. These include electric, solar, gas (both natural and LPG), and solid fuels like wood or coal. Generally, solar stands out as the most energy-efficient option, with natural gas or LPG closely trailing behind.

When heating your home, here are some energy-saving tips:

  • When looking for a heater, make sure to choose one that is energy efficient. And remember to base your choice on how often you’ll be using it, and how cold it gets where you are. If you’re in Mackay, you might not need something too powerful, so a lower watt heater might be something to consider.
  • Use the sun as much as you can. In the middle of the day, if you can, open your blinds and let warm air circulate throughout your home. Don’t open too many windows or doors, but rather have just enough open to allow the warm air to come in and stay in.
  • Buy a new heater. A lot of the newer models are equipped to save energy, whereas some of the older models are costing you a lot more money to use. It might be worth getting rid of your old one and buying a new one. While this might cost you upfront, you’ll save money in the long run.
  • Use the timer on your heater so that you’re not running it all day. If you have a fair idea of when you usually use your heater, you can set your heater to go on at a certain time and go off at a certain time. For example, you can set it to go off an hour before you get into bed. That way your room is still toasty when you go to sleep but you’re not running the heater all night and wasting money.
  • Consider getting solar to run your heater. Solar panels will still efficiently power your heating system and other appliances during the winter. It’s not only good for the environment but it will drastically cut down your electricity bills.

We received quotes from 3 different solar companies, and Tropical Solar was an easy choice. Not only were they very competitively priced, but Hunter was super informative and not pushy at all. Highly recommend 👌
