In Australia, there is an Energy Rating Labelling scheme to help customers choose energy efficient appliances
On average, an increase of one star means an average usage saving of approximately 10% .
Using the Australian Standard system, the Australian Gas Association (AGA) report calculates that Braemar has a 7 star equivalent ducted gas heater
The higher the number of stars on the rating label, the more efficient the appliance, meaning greater annual savings on your running costs
The Australian Standard states a maximum of 6 stars for Ducted Gas Heaters, however, Braemar has heaters that are more efficient than the maximum!
All Braemar ducted gas heaters have been independently testes in an AGA Nata accredited testing laboratory
Installing a Braemar 7 star equivalent* ducted gas heater instead of a 3 star ducted gas heater will save you approximately $577 per year in running costs!+
Savings per year compared to a 3 star ducted gas heater
Over a five year period you could save up to $2,885 on your heating costs with 7 star equivalent ducted gas heating.** Achieve even higher savings by adding zone control to your heating system.
*Star rating equivalent. Based on Australian Gas Association’s results calculated in accordance with the testing methodology in AS/NZS5263.1.6:2016.
**Data is based on: Gas price = 1.6 c/MJ • House Size – 240 m2 x 2.4 m ceiling height • Operation hours per year • 600 hrs (100 days at 6 hrs per day) – based on AS/NZS5263.1.6:2016 House Heat load – 0.2 MJ/h/m3 – based on AS/NZS5263.1.6:2016 • Annual Energy Consumption (AEC) for different star rated heaters based on AS/NZS5263.1.6:2016 • 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0, 6.8 and 7 star equivalent rated ducted gas heating systems. Note: These figures may vary for individual situations due to variation in factors such as gas price, house size and insulation, heater usage patterns, the area heated, how long you run the heating for, your thermostat settings ,how well insulated the house is, your local climate etc.
