Young family sets up for the future with solar and a heating/cooling system

Adam and Nina live in their Heidelberg West home with their baby. Like most Victorians, their energy bills have been rising and they want to move to solar to bring their spend under control.

After discussing their needs with us, they decided to get a split system heating and cooling unit as well as solar, to help minimise their energy use and to make their home more comfortable for their growing family.

As an energy conscious family, they love to track their solar production and home’s energy usage on their monitoring app, which they can access and view anytime on their smartphones.
