What’s cheaper? Gas or electricity? Well, you shouldn’t jump to conclusions, just yet. While gas used to be the front-runner by far, now it seems like it’s more of a turtle and hare race.
It’s debatable whether gas is now much cheaper to use than electricity. Yes, a megajoule of gas remains cheaper than a kilowatt-hour of electricity, but a kWh produces a lot more energy than a MJ.
There are two sides to every coin. Gas heaters are great for quickly heating small to medium-sized rooms. These systems do this cost-effectively, too. Yet with electric systems, you have a wide range of heater choices, often at a higher cost.
But, what if you could have the best of both worlds?
You don’t want to be in a position where you have to weigh up whether it’s hot enough to turn on the air con. The choice is actually easy, by combining two systems.
Did you know that the cost of running an evaporative system is about the same as operating a light bulb? Yes, a light bulb.
If we look at switching from a ducted gas heater in winter and evaporative cooling in summer, this is a game-changer, cost-wise.
You’ll enjoy more comfort and control, for less than the operating price of a reverse cycle system. With natural gas producing far less greenhouse gas emissions than electricity, this set-up would be more economical for you, and environmentally ethical in the long-term. Together, you’ll have a smaller carbon footprint and more highly efficient, whole of home solution, keeping you comfortable in all climates.
You choose the rooms (and temperature) you want to heat with a ducted gas system. For asthma or allergy sufferers, you won’t have to worry about dry, irritated eyes. Then, in the hotter months, evaporative cooling delivers fresh air throughout the home. Leave those doors and windows open for a summery scent, without losing your cool.
With South Australia’s unprecedented heatwaves, you need an intuitive air conditioner that’s designed to give you more control, when you need it. Seeley’s touchscreen smart electronic controllers, for example, allow you to set functions each day, to help minimise your power bills.

Now, see for yourself. It’s as simple as operating a light bulb.
