With en­ergy costs on the rise, many peo­ple are look­ing for more bud­get-friendly op­tions. If you’ve al­ready taken mea­sures to seal your home, re­verse-cy­cle air­con­di­tion­ing is of­ten the best op­tion.

“For ef­fi­cient op­er­a­tion, a ducted air­con­di­tion­ing sys­tem can be set up in zones, al­low­ing users to heat se­lected rooms or the en­tire house,” says Dave Smith, Fu­jitsu Gen­eral gen­eral man­ager for sales and mar­ket­ing. Hu­man sen­sor tech­nol­ogy is also avail­able on se­lected mod­els. “It switches to en­ergy-sav­ing op­er­a­tion when no move­ment is de­tected in the room for 20 min­utes, and re­sumes nor­mal op­er­a­tion when move­ment is de­tected,” he says.

Putting on a jumper or a pair of socks is sur­pris­ingly ef­fec­tive.
