How to save power
Save power and money - heat your room with air conditioning!
For every kilowatt consumed in input power, an amount of heating is created equivalent to three kilowatts consumed by conventional heating methods!
- Less power used, resulting in less cost
- Lower power usage resulting in fewer power cuts
- More Comfort in your home
- No more going out for LP Gas
Power input KW vs Heat Generated in BTU
The British Thermal Unit (BTU or Btu) is a unit of energy used in power, steam generation, heating and air conditioning industries. It is a measure of the amount of heat or cooling generated. One Watt is approximately 3.41 BTU/h; while 1000 BTU/h is approximately 293 Watt.
|2 Bar Heater||Gas Heater||Coal||Wood||Air Conditioning
|Cost (Rand/hr.)*||R 2.58||R 6.20||R3.52||R2.29||R1.13|
|Heat generated (BTU/hr.)||8532||15358||12000||12000||12000|
|Cost Comparison (Rand per 1000 BTU)*||R 0.30||R 0.40||R 0.29||R 0.19||R 0.10|

Benefits of air conditioning:
- Heat the air instantaneously
- No lost energy, so no power wastage
- Circulates already heated air, using less power
- Thermostatically controlled (switches off at the desired temperature) so no more discomfort
- Does not use an exposed element or open flame, so no risk of damage or loss of life
- Can be set to switch on or off when needed
- Does not need to run all day to warm the living space
- Filters the air while circulating
- Removes harmful bacteria and dust from the environment
