A feed-in tariff for air conditioners - yes I'm serious

Air conditioners have copped a lot of flak, but are a very efficient way to heat our homes. Encouraging highly energy-efficient reverse-cycle air conditioners could actually reduce emissions and peak demand if done right.

Reverse-cycle air conditioners are the most efficient and economical heaters to run, but unfortunately you aren't likely to get that information out of your home refrigeration or space-heating contractor.

Renewable heat is what an air conditioner produces in winter, heating your home. The term is now becoming widely understood in the United Kingdom; where the government has announced a Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) program.
