Our reverse cycle heating is on most of the time, but the temperature is set to 22c. When it reaches that it cuts out automatically and comes back on as the temp drops again. We never notice the drop and the kids are warm all the time. This apparantly is the best and most efficient way to run the system.
We have gas solar power for the hot water and have the gas on for half an hour in early morning for showers and half an hour in the evening for bath time (winter only) and we always have have ample hot water for everyone.
after todays carbon tax and the tax rises for people on $80 k plus, i'll be eating Baked Beans from July 2012
Teresa, we are with Tru energy too! I'd ring them up and find out why!
We have an off-peak electricity meter so the cost to heat the hot water is much cheaper as well. We use AGL
US -> UK -> NZ -> OZ

Daniel, 31 and Stephanie, 30, Arrived 30th April 2008 and LOVING IT!!!
We're with SimplyEnergy, have set up a bpay with them so we dont get any nasty surprises, but in saying that our largest bill ever (with origin) was over summer $400, we had the aircon alot as my bro & sis in law were over for a month - shes russian, so even in our rather pitiful summer she was melting and needed the aircon on to be able to function....
2 of us working and not near that 90k but we're not on beans, far from it to be honest...although we do enjoy beans on toast for a brunch at the weekend.
