Central heating is a smart choice for combating Wellington’s changeable weather conditions and bitterly cold southerlies. It can be installed in new or existing homes and buildings and can be tailored to your project’s needs so that every room is comfortable, even during the coldest months of winter. Central Heating New Zealand’s quality European products have proven to be ideal for meeting the central heating needs of Kiwis across the country.
Because natural gas is available in most towns in the Waikato, gas boilers are an efficient and cost-effective solution for many homeowners. Both their installation and running costs are low, and they work well with radiators and underfloor heating. Some homeowners choose “combi” gas boilers, which provide domestic hot water in addition to heating the central heating system. These boilers store 60L of hot water at 65°C, which can then provide around 110L at 40°C. This is both a space and cost-effective method of providing both hot water and heating in some Hamilton and Waikato region homes.
If you’re a farmer who uses diesel every day for your machinery or a homeowner outside of the reticulated gas network, diesel boilers are a cost-effective solution that suit both radiator and underfloor heating systems.
Geothermal heat pumps are a green, efficient option for owners of large properties who want to invest in an eco-friendly option that produces the lowest running costs available. Because the geothermal pipes that collect the energy for the system require a large area of land, this option is best-suited for new builds where the home can be built directly on top of where the pipes are laid. Suitable for both radiators and underfloor heating, air-to-water heat pumps can also provide low running costs and are effective heat sources for new and existing homes of any size.
Radiators suit both new homes and the large number of existing homes in Hamilton and the Waikato region because they are relatively easy and inexpensive to install.
Underfloor heating is best suited to new homes, because the pipes in a typical installation are laid in the concrete slab.
