May 2016 Public Forum


The May 2016 Public Forum was a success with over 50 people attending, including the Liberal, Labor and Greens candidates for the forthcoming Federal Election on 2 July 2016.

Tim Forcey discussed the efficiency of Heat Pumps. We call them Reverse Cycle Air Conditioners in Australia. Every where else in the world they are called heat pumps. This name results in many people thinking of them as air conditioners only. They have never thought to press the HEAT heat button.  Heating with an efficient heat pump can be much cheaper than heating with gas, but it will depend on your building.
