Posted on Tuesday, May 09, 2017


 

Purchase any Braemar 5, 6 or 7 star equivalent* ducted gas heater model to receive $200 cash back from Seeley International, but there is more so much more to be had when you connect to gas.

Ducted gas heating vs reverse cycle heating

With energy prices rising, ducted gas heating has the edge on reverse cycle when it comes to both efficiency and performance, and even more so now with the world's first 7 star equivalent* ducted gas heating range from Braemar

  • Cost effective - save up to $612 per year when compared to reverse cycle^
  • Better performance - reverse cycle works less efficiently when outside temperature drops. Ducted gas efficiently remains steady.
  • Instant warmth - ducted gas reaches desired temperature much faster the reverse cycle.
  • Comfortable air - Ducted gas won't dry your skin and eyes. It's a different kind of cosy warmth.

Evaporative or Refrigerated which is best?

Posted on Tuesday, February 09, 2016

Well there are certainly some inventive ideas there but seriously which is better Evaporative or Refrigerated. There are pros and cons for both. If you live in metropolitan Adelaide then there is an extremely good chance that there is gas running past your front door which you have access to economical gas for heating. The combination of ducted evaporative air cooling and ducted gas heating is an excellent marriage. (watch the Better Living Video titled Ducted Gas Heating and Evaporative Air Conditioning http://gasworks.net.au/the-better-living-blog/ducted-gas-heating-evaporative-air-conditioning-video).

Evaporative systems offer great cooling qualities at a very economical running  price. The cost to run a state of the art Breezair or Braemar evaporative system equated to the same as running a light globe. Another advantage of evaporative systems is that they constantly draw in fresh air and expel the old air rather than recycling the same air. To learn more about how evaporative air conditioning works watch the Better Living Video What is Evaporative Air Conditioning https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6zWu_kd7t0  

Gas Works are Climate Masters of Seeley International and as such are experts when it comes to evaporative air conditioning. They offer an exclusive 7 year warranty on the unit and the installation so you can invest in your home with total peace of mind. With Gas Works being in SA for over 25 years you know it’s a name you can trust.

If you don’t have access to gas or you want the convenience of a single  system then ducted reverse cycle is for you. A reverse cycle system will both warm and cool your home at the touch of a button. A reverse cycle system as the name suggests recycles the cool/warm air around the home. To run the system most effectively it is best to keep all external door and windows shut. It is important to invest in a quality unit. You will find that reverse cycle  systems are covered by the energy star ratings. The more star the more efficient the system. To learn more about the energy star system check out the Better Living Video  Energy Star Ratings http://gasworks.net.au/the-better-living-blog/star-ratings-video

There are a number of well known brands like Dakin, Mitsubishi, Fujitsu, Samsung, Kelvinator, Rinnai, LG, Lennox and Panasonic. Gas Works have access to all major brands and are Panasonic Air Specialist Network Dealers which tells you they fully qualified to design and install system that is right for your home. Selecting the right size system is critical to the efficiency and effectiveness of the air conditioner. Too small a system and it will struggle to cool/heat your home, too big a system and your running cost will be higher than necessary.

New S.A Ducts are top of the class!

Posted on Thursday, March 19, 2015

 

New product reduces energy bills and improves climate control efficiency.
Gas Works have recently established a new partnership with South Australian company DUCTAIR

for the supply of quality air conditioning delivery components for their Ducted  Reverse Cycle, Ducted Evaporative and Ducted Gas Heating products.

Ductair’s Energy Smart System has been independently university tested and proven to dramatically improve the air conditioning efficiency. The Energy Smart system can almost double the capacity of a reverse cycle air conditioning  system, saving up to 45% on annual running costs and substantially reducing greenhouse emissions.  

In addition, Ductair delivery systems carry a 20 year warranty and the ducting insulation is rated R1.5, well above the accepted industry standard of R1.


Mr Chadd Stevenson, Managing Director of Gas Works Modbury, has been installing air-conditioning for over 20 years and is delighted by the prospects of the new partnership. “I’m excited by the opportunity to sell and promote a fellow South Australian success story” he said. “Ductair is an excellent product which fits perfectly with our quality ethos and our commitment to globally recognised SA brands like Breamar and Breezair.  Here we have South Australian businesses working together which is great for SA and most importantly great for our customers”.

Solar panel rebate still kicking

Posted on Wednesday, September 03, 2014

Can I get a rebate on my solar panels?

Right now, yes. In the near future, probably not. If you have solar panels on the mind, the time is ripe to get a quote and think about pushing ahead with installation. The government is talking of quashing the Renewal Energy Target (RET) which in turn will mean we can start waving goodbye to any rebates on solar panels.

The government doesn’t actually call this incentive a solar panel rebate, just to be clear. They call it the Small-scale Technology Certificate (STC) Program but it will be gone before the end of the year if the government has their way.

This program was designed to reduce the upfront cost of purchasing and installing solar panels on your home or property. Anyone can claim, on the proviso the system is smaller than 100kW, Australian approved panels and inverters are used and the system is installed by a Clean Energy Council accredited professional, such as Gas Works.

So the message is, if you are interested in installing solar power get into Gas Works today! We will help you determine how much you can save on the price of a solar system.

Don’t forget that when you install solar you don’t just save money on your own power bill. If you don’t use all of the power you can feed it back into the grid and receive a credit on your account. This is called a Feed in Tariff (FiT) and for systems ordered after 30 September 2013 you will receive 7.6c per kilowatt of power exported to the grid. Although with the abolition of the carbon tax this will reduce to 6.0c per kilowatt, it is still a handy bonus for many households though.

Check out our solar panel, kit and inverter options and get in contact with your local Gas Works today and do your bit for the environment while the government is still helping to reduce the cost.

Continuous Hot Water Systems [VIDEO]

Posted on Thursday, September 05, 2013

Looking at a new hot water system but not sure what to install? See why a gas continuous hot water system can give you hot water on demand while also saving you money.

Continuous Hot Water System Video Transcript:

Hi and welcome to better living. In this episode we take a look in more detail about Gas continuous flow hot water systems and why there are so popular.

As we mentioned in our previous program with the continuous flow hot water system you only heat the water you need at the time. Unlike the traditional tank system which heats water and then store it in a tank. Now this is generally done overnight but of course as time goes by the water loses temperature and requires re heating thus using more power to maintain its temperature.

Now you would have to think that these continuous flow systems run more economically than the old tank system and they do. Add to this they run on natural gas which means they are cheaper to run and create less green house gas emissions so they are better for the environment too.

Today’s systems come from market leader such as Bosch and Rinnai and are extremely efficient and effective, unlike the old instant hot water systems these are state of the art design and functionality.

One of the best features of these units is the controllers. The controllers have the capability for to determine the temperature that comes out of the tap. Now that is great for those who like their showers hotter or cooler that someone else, but it can also prevent the sensitive skin of children from getting burn from hot water.

You can have more than one controller, say for argument sake what you live in a two story house you could have one downstairs and another upstairs or in multiple bathrooms and that’s what makes these units so versatile.

So let’s sum up. They run on natural gas which leaves less of a carbon footprint, they are more economical than electricity; there is less wasted hot water and now here is the really exciting part. There are generous rebates offered to those who change from electric systems to natural gas systems, so it’s save, save, save and don’t we love that.

Now whether you are replacing an existing unit or building a new home a natural gas continuous flow unit is the go. So drop into a Gasworks Showroom and have a chat with one of the gas specialist staff and see if a gas continuous hot water system would suit you and of course the Gasworks website has a lot of information too. Until next time I’m Karen Prater for Better Living wishing better living.

Want more information on a continuous hot water system to suit your needs? Talk to the hot water specialists at your nearest Gas Works Showroom who will help find what works better for you.

Types of Hot Water Systems & Their Benefits [VIDEO]

Posted on Monday, August 19, 2013

Types of Hot Water Systems Video Transcript:

Hi and welcome to better living with Gasworks.

In this episode we take look at one of the most important comfort functions in the home… the hot water system.

Having hot water available on demand is an essential daily requirement for showering, cleaning, washing and bathing. 

And it’s not until we are without it, that we really appreciate the value of a good hot water system.

Unfortunately, when a Hot water system fails, it’s usually without notice and, like so many of life’s inconveniences, at the worst possible time!!

The natural response for many of us is to fix the problem as quickly as possible, which often means simply replacing the unit with the same model or size, by the first plumber who can get there!

But ironically, this little in home disaster is actually a great opportunity to save yourself money and make your more home energy efficient if you take the time to seek expert advice on what type of system to install and whether it is right to suit your needs.

There are many different options to choose from including Electric, Gas or Solar, storage or instantaneous to name a few.

And your decision will depend on a range of factors including your budget, your energy use and the demand needs in your home.  

The traditional electric storage service heats the water, usually overnight, and then stores it ready for later use. With the rising price of electricity, this can be an expensive and inefficient option. 

Solar systems are the cheapest and most environmentally friendly to run as they harness the suns power to heat the water, although they still require an additional electric or gas back-up to take over when there is insufficient sunlight.

A key consideration in choosing Solar is the large up-front costs – although these will generally be recovered over time through reduced energy bills.

A Heat Pump System is another storage type system. Heat Pumps extract heat from the air or ground. They run on electricity and are about three times more efficient than the traditional electric storage system. 

The catch with heat pump is you need the right environment to make them work effectively.

Continuous flow gas systems are very popular and economical to run as they only heat water when it is required. Being continuous, they never run out and have the added advantage of being able to set the temperature of the water to suit the specific need. This is ideal where young children are present as it reduces the risk of burns and it also helps to maintain efficient energy use.

Amongst all of these options is a vast array of models, shapes, sizes, quality, warranty and of course cost.

So which one do you choose? Continuous flow is reliable and convenient, but what if you don’t have gas connected? Solar is a great option, but given the investment required you need to stay in that house for years to make it viable.

One of the best things you can do is take the time to speak with the hot water experts at your local Gasworks Store.

With years of experience in sales and installation, they know exactly what type of system will work better for you and is best suited to your needs and budget.

Or you can jump onto the Gas Works website where you’ll find loads of great information.

And one last piece of advice that could save you the heartache and inconvenience of being caught unaware.

Take the time to check your current unit.

If it is more than ten years old you might want to do some research now, so when the time comes to replace it, you’ll be fully prepared and know exactly what to do and who to see.

Thanks for watching, until next time, I’m Karen Prater for Better Living with Gasworks.

Ducted Gas Heating, what you need to know! [VIDEO]

Posted on Monday, July 29, 2013

Have you been looking into Ducted Gas Heating but were never quite sure if it was the right choice for you? Let Better Living with Gas Works show you how a Ducted Gas Heating system can heat your home more efficiently and reduce your energy bills during the high usage winter months.

Ducted gas heating video transcript

Hi and welcome to better living with Gasworks. I don't know about you but I hate being cold. I know that you can always put on another jumper and wrap yourself up but nothing beats a nice warm home in winter. With natural gas there's a number of options. There are those beautiful gas log fires that look so warm and inviting. Then are space heaters and wall furnaces but for my money a whole of home solution is the way to go and that is exactly what you get with ducted gas heating.

Now a ducted system needn't cost a fortune to run. Breamar from Seeley International an Australian company have created the world's first 6 star ducted gas heater.

Natural gas is clean burning so you don't get stuffy air that you get from reverse cycle heating. Natural gas heating also is more economical to run no matter how cold it gets. Research shows that natural gas produces just one third of the emissions of that of black coal generated electricity.

And when it gets really cold outside, reverse cycle systems lose efficiency, while Braemar ducted gas systems keep your home as warm as you want it -- no matter how cold it gets outdoors! Add to this that you can zone the system so you are only heating the rooms you need to heat and at the temperature you want.

There a number of systems you can buy and these range from 3 to 6 star systems. These units are mainly installed in the roof. The units can broken down into sections so they can easily fit through the return air opening as we see here and then re assembled in the roof space. Some people do have concerns about having a gas unit in the roof space but these concerns are unfounded as the system is very safe.

Now as I mentioned Breamar have produced a 6 star system. While these 6 star unit cost more initially, the running efficiency is such that they will pay for themselves over a period of time. The 6 star system runs around $370 a year cheaper than a 3 star system and produces 1.4 tonnes less of CO2 per year. To put that into perspective that is the same of taking a small car of the road. So not only will you be toastie warm but you're being kind to the environment.

One of the best things you can do is take the time to speak with the home climate solutions experts at your local Gasworks Showroom.

With years of experience in sales and installation, they know exactly what type of system will work better for you and is best suited to your needs and budget.

Or you can jump onto the Gasworks website where you'll find loads of great information.
