How reverse cycle split systems are a better choice for heating than an electric heater

Winters in Gippsland are cold

  • A reverse cycle air conditioners can be 3X more efficient when compared to an electric heater. This is true no matter where in Gippsland you live.
  • An electric heater has a one to one power to heat output, so for every 2 kW of heat you require 2 kW of electrical power.
  • However, a reverse cycle (heating & cooling) air conditioner requires only 0.6 kW of electrical power for 2 kW of heat.
  • This happens because the reverse cycle (heat pump) takes free heat from the air. The fan forces air across an evaporator that contains very cold liquid refrigerant. The heat in the air warms the refrigerant and changes it to a gas. This gas is circulated by a compressor and the increasing pressure causes the temperature of the gas to increase.
  • The high temperature gas then goes to a condenser where the heat is transferred to the air. The refrigerant cools to a liquid and the cycle starts all over again.
  • This can impact the cost of heating the air to approximately one third compared to electric heaters. Which saves you money.

More benefits from a split system air conditioner for your heating needs:

  • The air is distributed evenly throughout the room. Daikin Split System air conditioners have 3D air distribution that circulates the air to all the corners of the room. However with electric heaters it is hot near the heater and cold in the rest of the room.
  • All Daikin Split System Airconditioners are thermostatically controlled so little to no electricity is wasted by overheating. The thermostat kicks in to keep you and your family at the ideal temperature.
  • Your Daikin Split System Air Conditioner can be set to turn on 30 minutes before you get up in the morning. So you can get out of bed into a cozy warm home ready to take on the day.
  • Electric heaters have additional safety needs. Sometimes a 2 kW electric heater can overload electric circuits, this is especially true in older houses. Overloaded circuits, in turn, have been known to cause fires.
  • Also high radiant heat close to the old standard electric heater can cause clothing to catch fire.
