When the weather gets chilly, we often take cover under the blankets and wear layers of clothes to keep away the cold. Unfortunately, all attempts to keep warm may be futile if the room you are in is cold. Your living space can either keep you warm and cosy or leave you frozen. In Australia, most homes lack the right designs in their architecture to handle cold temperatures. Australian houses tend to lose a lot of heat, especially during cold weather. Numerous solutions have been employed by architects and interior designers to minimise heat loss and keep houses warm but none is greater than heaters.
