Building a home and looking at options for heating and cooling. We've insulated the walls, ceilings and sheets and are trying to find a low cost way to heat up and cool down the house in terms of installation and running cost. We won't be installing an reverse cycle AC at the moment as we want to see how hot or cold it will be with the insulation and monitor for around a year before we decide to proceed.
For cooling, we will be installing fans in every room and cooling isn't much of a problem for us compared to heating. Wanting to go with a wood fireplace and use an air transfer kit to transfer the air but I've read that its not as effective. Stumbled upon TurboHeat, which uses air inside the flute or something to transfer heat around the home and is more effective but its more expensive at around 10 grand in total for supply and installation for 10-12 vents.
Anyone have any experience with them or recommend which is better or other alternatives?
