Reverse Cycle Air Conditioners/Heaters
Reverse cycle air conditioners are multi functional, so not only do they keep your house cool in Summer but they also make sure to heat your home in the winter months. Sometimes referred to as heat pumps, reverse cycle air conditioners work by extracting air from the outside and transferring it inside.
Reverse cycle devices produce a convective warmth and are the most effective form of electric heating. Five or six star units will emit lower greenhouse gas levels even in comparison to gas heaters.
The system is ideal for allergy and asthma sufferers because it works as a dehumidifier as well as an air filter.
Ideal for: Anyone building a home deciding on an effective form of heating
Anyone looking to upgrade or add to their current heating system
Allergy and asthma sufferers
Suggested brands: Panasonic, Fujitsu, Kelvinator, Teco, Mitsubishi
Many households choose to only heat the main family area which makes sense from a cost perspective. Some houses have large layouts and it can be difficult to try to heat the entire home if the heating system has not been upgraded for some time. A great alternative to closing doors and trying to heat bedrooms individually, is the electric blanket. Thanks to technological advancements over the last couple of years the stigma surrounding electric blankets has disappeared and they are now safe, user friendly and very cheap to run. Some possess handy features such as variable temperature controls and timers so even if you fall asleep, you can feel at ease that the electric blanket will shut itself off.
Ideal for: Anyone that doesn’t want to heat bedrooms individually
Anyone who feels the cold during the night
Anyone wanting to save on heating costs
Suggested brands: Sunbeam, Kambrook, Heller
This handy little gadget is wonderful for those that are seated for the majority of the day. Owning a heated throw will mean you don’t even have to turn on your heating if you are the only person at home. Heated throws work similarly to electric blankets, they’re laced with heating coils covered by heat resistant and non flammable material. The only requirement that needs to be met is for you to sit near a power outlet (could always use an extension cord) and with many alternative designs there is sure to be one that fits your taste.
Ideal for: Elderly people
People who work at home in a seated position
Anyone who lives on their own
Anyone that prefers not to turn their heating on
Anyone that wants to save on heating costs
Allergy and asthma suffers
Suggested brands: Sunbeam
A bright glow is emitted from their visible columns delivering a radiant heat to the room. Radiant heat is absorbed through the skin as opposed to other heaters that instead blow out hot air. Receiving heat this way provides a greater sense of warmth and is critical in smaller rooms to avoid stuffiness. Radiant heaters are a silent heating companion that is cost effective and user friendly. This heating option is also compatible with allergy and asthma suffers as it does not emit any allergens as fan forced heaters do.
Ideal for: Smaller areas
Allergy and asthma sufferers
Suggested brands: Heller
Despite what the name suggests, oil heaters are run by electricity. All forms of electric heating are considered efficient as they turn 100% of electricity into heat. Oil heaters are very cost efficient and easy to run. Although it will take a little longer to warm up oil heaters provide a warm, radiant heat that will envelop the room as opposed to a fan blowing alternative. It is also a preferred choice for those that suffer from asthma or air-borne allergies as it does not blow dust or other particles into the air.
Ideal for: All homes
Asthma and allergy sufferers
Suggested brands: Delonghi, Dimplex, Kambrook, Heller
Powered by electricity providing a convection heat, panel heaters create a warm, ambient atmosphere. Silent in operation, panel heaters can be portable or fixed to the wall and don’t emit any dust particles or allergens so they are perfect for asthma and allergy sufferers.
It is important to know the costs of running a panel heater as they can vary from model to model. Generally more expensive to run than other forms of heating, panel heaters are a cheaper alternative at the start when compared to the initial prices of more energy-efficient heaters .
Ideal for: Homeowners looking to install an effective,
unintrusive form of ambient heat
Suggested brands: Nobo, Omega, Noirot, Delonghi, Dimplex, Heller

Slow cookers have long been a winter favourite, creating family favourites and traditional classics. Capable of a wide variety of dishes, slow cooking meat with the low temperature form of cooking will have the juices continually infusing and marinating back into the dish. You do not have to use expensive cuts of meat to create tender dishes which makes the meals created by slow cookers very cost effective.
They come in different sizes to suit your family. Whether you are cooking for a crowd, cooking in bulk or just cooking for a couple, every home should have a slow cooker within easy reach.
