s the weather cools down and winter rolls in, people are starting to look at the best ways to heat their homes and to enjoy time outside in the cooler months. Leading interior designer Adrian Ramsay of Adrian Ramsay Design House says heating can become more efficient if we use the correct materials when insulating. “While reverse airconditioning and underfloor heating is popular, I will always choose wood fires for a more eco-friendly and economic option,’’ he says. “If you’re looking for the most energy efficient solution to heating, glass-fronted fireplaces are more efficient than open fire “Wood fires in Queensland help to combat issues that coincide with humidity and mould spores because they emit a dry heat. They are also a beautiful way to create ambience and in the world of TV that we live in, they are a way to build another space for the family to gather around and connect with one another.” For more information, visit ardesignhouse.com.

Adrian’s top picks for outdoor heating Firepit orbs or open fireplaces These are romantic, tell a story, generate massive amount of heat and have the added bonus of a visual display creating drama around the fire. Open-wood fires are hot burning, high combustible heating solutions. As only dead wood is used, no forests are being cut down for firewood and hardwood creates a hot burn with very little material.

Double- and triple-glazed windows and thermal break windows and doors don’t allow for heat or chill to transfer through the materials and create mass efficiency.
