Heating and cooling

Residential Space Heaters in Australia and New Zealand

Space heating accounts for around a third of residential energy use in Australia (35 per cent) and New Zealand (32 per cent) (EnergyConsult, 2015), making it the single largest energy end use in Australian homes, and a major energy end use in New Zealand homes. The use of space heaters is also a major driver of household energy costs, especially in colder regions. Increased uptake of efficient heating would result in reductions in residential energy use, household energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
