Should I buy cooling only or heating and cooling?

Should I buy cooling only or heating and cooling?

Reverse cycle (heating + cooling) systems cost about the same as cooling-only ones, so there’s no reason to bypass that added capability. 

Even if your winters aren’t that chilly, our homes are particularly prone to heat-sucking drafts and leaks. While having your home properly insulated and weather-proofed helps, most houses still need to be heated during the cold season.   

And reverse cycle system heating is not only better for the environment but has also been cheaper than gas heating since 2015.
