House Heating for Homeowners

Unlike other heating methods, central heating provides even heat distribution across all rooms, leaving no drafts or damp spots.

Why central heating?

Many New Zealanders will be familiar with the struggle to stay comfortably warm in their home each winter. Typically, New Zealand homes are heated unevenly and unhealthily. The air temperature in bedrooms often falls below 16°C, while living areas are commonly over-heated—sometimes to as high as 30°C. The World Health Organisation’s recommends 21°C for a healthy living environment.

We recommend a system that heats the entire house. The extra installation costs and minimal additional running costs are far outweighed by the benefits and sheer pleasure of being comfortable throughout the house. More of the house will be used and “lived in” if it is comfortable throughout, and its perceived value and attractiveness for future sale will increase. In addition, it is highly efficient, environmentally-friendly and easy to control. It is the preferred method of heating across two-thirds of the world.

Advantages of Central Heating

EFFICIENT: Water transfers energy at four times the rate of air making warm water central heating systems so much more efficient than warm air systems.
