Heating to Suit Auckland’s Unique Needs

Winter temperatures might not get quite as low in Auckland as in other parts of the country, but with an average low of only 7°C in July compounded with a peak rainy season in June, July and August, warm water central heating works wonders in warming up the entire home while drying away any damp that creeps inside. Auckland’s weather, available resources, council requirements—all of this combined with your own personal needs and preferences play a part in determining which central heating solution works best for you.

When it comes to providing heat for central heating systems, Auckland area residents love gas boilers. Auckland is blessed with a comprehensive reticulated gas network, which makes both gas boiler running and installation costs very reasonable. Air-to-water heat pumps are a good solution due to their versatility and low running costs. Geothermal heating, a fantastic, green solution for those with enough land who want to invest in their properties for the long term, is an efficient and environmentally friendly option.

Gas boilers, air-to-water heat pumps and geothermal heat pumps are suitable for use with both underfloor heating and radiators. Auckland weather is so changeable—going from hot to cold to windy to rainy in a matter of 20 minutes—that proper, whole-building heating is crucial for comfort. Radiators suit retrofitting because of the ease of installation and the variety of different styles available. They can respond quickly to Auckland’s weather changes, while underfloor heating can provide a steady warmth against inclement weather. Underfloor is most commonly used in new builds but Auckland homes with new extensions are also well suited to using radiators in the existing parts of homes and underfloor in the new extension.
