Heating your whole home is a luxury you can afford

If you’ve experienced the all-over comfort of natural gas central heating, you’ll probably agree there’s nothing quite like it. It’s probably more affordable than you think, with a whole-home ducted central heating solution costing a similar amount to two heat pumps installed.

The beauty of ducted heating of course is that it heats every room in your home evenly – or you have the option of zoning so you can select certain areas to warm. In comparison to a heat pump which can struggle to heat your whole home.

If you’re already connected to gas for your hot water at home, the per kilowatt hour or per unit cost of heating your home with gas compared to electricity is a lot cheaper - around one-third the standard unit price of energy.

Ducted gas central heating is powerful and highly efficient, taking your home from cold to cosy in next to no time. Choose a combi boiler to heat your water also and make extra savings. Radiant underfloor heating gives a greater feeling of warmth with a lower air temperature, so you can achieve fuel cost savings compared to other heating appliances.

If you’re after a heater for a smaller area, look no further than a space heater like Rinnai’s Energysaver range. Comparable to a heat pump, these compact and floor-mounted heaters are tiny but mighty, and very economical.

We recommend researching closely if you’re after a heating solution. Many portable electric heaters cost a lot to run and don’t give a great output. With natural gas heating, you can be assured of luxurious comfort – and some people say that value is unbeatable.
