Heating a Habitech home in a Melbourne winter

What's the most common question we get asked about our homes during a Melbourne winter?

Not surprisingly, in a climate such as ours, it's about heating.

The Brooklyn House, pictured here on our Open Day on Saturday 18th July, has hydronic slab heating, with a well-insulated slab edge. A gas unit will heat the system in this case, although we recommend moving to electrical, heat pump-based hydronic heating where possible, so heating can be run from renewable energy - which also now turns out to be cheaper in the long run.
