What to do if your heater or air conditioner doesn’t have a thermostat?
Without an inbuilt thermostat, a stand-alone heater can easily overheat a room.
Likewise, an old air conditioner without a thermostat can overcool the room. Both will increase your energy bills.
The solution is to buy a plug-in electronic thermostat called the HeaterMate. Costing only $40 per unit, you plug a heater or air conditioner into the thermostat and then plug the thermostat into the wall socket.
When the room reaches the temperature you set on the HeaterMate, the unit automatically turns off the heater or air-conditioning appliance.
This functionality enables the devices to pay for themselves in a short space of time. For more information visit HeaterMate.com.au.
Parap Veterinary Hospital, NT
Parap Vet Hospital was able to save more than $400 per month by retiring their old ‘dinosaur’ air conditioner and replacing it with a more energy efficient model – ideal to battle the harsh conditions of a Darwin summer.
Do you have an old air conditioner that you could replace?
