    Default Heaters Recommendations Please!!

    I need a heater for our house, I would love ducted or reverse cycle split system but that isn't in the budget.

    Something that is safe for a toddler is a must!

    Our oven & hot water are gas. I'm looking for something portable, our house is quite large and I want to be able to move it into the room we are using.

    We have a rinnai avenger it's Fantastic! It's gas but it quite affordable to run. We have a large area to heat and it does a great job. It doesn't have open flame/bars so no fear the kids will burn themselves.

    If you arr going to spend the money and own yout house I would buy a rinnai gas heater (so cheap to run). We have one.

    But I have heard pp heaters are xheap too.

    Our rinnai is in our lounge its supposed to be a bedroom heater but does our whole house!!! We bought it second gandr off gumtree and hubby installed it.

    We've just bought a noirot panel heater for our bedroom. Has a lifetime warranty. You can get it wired in so it costs even less but I like being able to move it around. We have a heat pump but it doesn't push the heat 2 the bedrooms. I have the panel heater set 2 turn on and off every morning and evening. No longer 2 cold 2 get out of bed!

    Thanks for the tips. We only want something as a temporary fix as we plan on installing reverse cycle units, plus we live in QLD and it's only really cold for about 6 weeks.

    We are getting a wood heater installed next week, though this may not be in your price range, it's looking to cost around $3000. But we don't have gas where we are and have a huge house, electric heating is too expensive. I'd recommend a panel heater if wood isn't a option
