After replacing Laura’s gas-ducted heater with a new split system, she reported she could now sleep right through the night without waking up with breathing difficulties.

Carla’s new split system not only saved her $800 on last years’ heating bills; it meant she could afford to heat her whole house, and for the first time in many winters she could sleep in her bedroom, rather than the lounge.

An insulation top-up and a new split system saved Eveline $30 a month on energy bills and made her home healthier. “I’m buying less asthma medication, and now set the heater thermostat 40C less than what it was before”.

Boris said his new split system made life so much easier. With chronic pain, “I no longer have to lie on the floor to light the gas heater’s pilot light”.
