Think summer is gone, think again

Posted on Thursday, March 03, 2016

 

If you are thinking that it isn’t worth installing reverse cycle air conditioning now that summer is almost over, then think again. We could be in for many more hot days like this weekend that is coming up. Once summer is over winter will not be far away and you be needing to warm your home. Reverse cycle air conditioning gives you the best of both worlds. Cooling your home in summer and keeping your family warm in winter.  Now is the time to save, there are great specials at Gas Works (see specials page gasworks.net.au) and right now there is a $200 Rebate when you buy a selected Panasonic High Wall Spilt System (click here). Gas Works are a Panasonic Specialist Air Network Dealer so really know Panasonic and can find the right system for your home.

Now if you are thinking that a economical ducted South Australian made Breezair or Braemar evaporative system is the go for your home, then think about teaming it up with a natural gas ducted system by Braemar. Gas Works are Climate Masters of Seeley International in fact Gas Works the biggest in SA. As a Climate Master of Seeley International they have an exclusive 7 Year Warranty on the unit and installation, now that is real peace of mind. It gets better, here is the really good news, right now there is a massive $750 rebate when you make the connection to natural gas and install a ducted gas system. There is a price rise due 1st April and that is no joke so now is defiantly the time to buy.

Advice from the SA Department of Health

Posted on Wednesday, November 18, 2015


  • Drink plenty of water – avoid caffeine and alcohol
  • spend time in cool places
  • keep out of the sun. If you have to go outside, go in the early morning or late evening and stay in the shade
  • wear light coloured, loose clothing and take a hat to wear outside
  • always use plenty of sunscreen
  • don’t do a lot of exercise outside when it is very hot
  • to help you sleep use a water spray mister on your face and body
  • try to stay inside with a fan or air conditioner on

Babies and young children

  • Babies and young children need watching carefully when it is hot as they can get sick very quickly
  • cars can get dangerously hot – never leave babies, young children or pets alone in a car even if the air conditioning is on
  • if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should drink more water than usual
  • always wear shoes outside on hot days – the ground can easily burn the feet of babies or young children

Older people

  • Check on older people at least twice every day especially if they live alone
  • make sure older people are using their air conditioning when it is hot – always check the setting is on ‘cool’

People with physical or mental health conditions

  • Keep taking any prescribed medicine every day at the same time as you normally do, even if you feel unwell because of the heat

Your home

  • Keep your home cool by closing curtains, blinds and windows during the day
  • if it is safe, open windows at night to let cool air in
  • wear as little clothing as possible when in your own home to keep cool
  • bacteria can grow very quickly on food in hot weather and make you ill – keep all fresh food in the fridge
  • animals can suffer and even die on very hot days so keep them in the house or make sure they have shade in the garden and always leave them plenty of water

Help is available

If you think you are ill:

  • speak to your local chemist/pharmacist or call your GP
  • older people can register with the Red Cross and a volunteer will call 3 times a day to check if they are ok. Register by calling 1800 188 071
  • if you are very sick, go to your nearest hospital or call 000 for an ambulance

Solar Power - The truth the whole truth

Posted on Tuesday, October 13, 2015

You know there isn’t a day that goes by when someone isn’t offering the unrepeatable deal of the century on solar power systems that just seems just too good to be true. Generally I have always found that if it sound too good to be true then chances are that is exactly what it is.

Now the idea of solar power sound great but, who do you trust?

Gas Works have been installing solar systems for over 20 years so if any is going to know then a trust SA Company like Gas Works is a great place to start.

So what make for a good solar power system, in short it is one that suits your needs and that will vary depending on what your needs are. It will also depend on exactly what size system you can fit on your roof, what you are looking to achieve from a solar system and what budget you have to spend on a system.

Now the price of a system can vary dramatically however in the long run there is no substitute for quality. While the cheaper systems may perform well at first as they get older they can experience problems. There can be issues with the inverters or the panels themselves. There are a number of solar power companies who are no longer in business and tracking down the manufacture of the panels is not always easy and the vast majority are made overseas.

So what size system do you need and how much do they cost? This will depend on your power usage however the average size systems installed are 3-5 kilowatt. These will dramatically reduce the average household bill. You can expect to pay somewhere between $5,000 - $6,000 for a good quality 3 kilowatt system after the government rebate. This means you should always look at solar as a long term investment. Generally you can expect to your system to pay for itself in approximately 4 -5 years and has an expectant life of 20-25 years.

Gas Works recommend that before investing in a system, spend a week measuring your usage between 6am-6pm. This let you know how much power you are consuming during the daytime, while your system is producing power.

What you don’t use you can sell back to the grid, however in most cases you pay more for power than you get back.

With a north facing roof with a pitch of 25-30% you can expect a system to produce 4.2 kilowatts of power per day per kilowatt of system.
