A Swedish expat, who experienced central heating as a child, wanted the same clean, silent heat in his architectural dream home. The system designed by Central Heating New Zealand would have to take into consideration large double-glazed windows, minimal space and the client's passion for interior design. The client, who travels a lot with work, wanted the ability to control heating while out and about.
A diesel boiler and tank was considered too large for the property and its garden. Instead, a gas boiler was wall mounted in the laundry and hidden from view. Radiators were chosen over underfloor heating as the lightweight build did not have a concrete foundation. Central Heating New Zealand worked with the client's architect to position nine radiators throughout the home. All radiators were installed with a thermostatic head allowing for individual room temperature settings. A programmable WiFi thermostat was also installed for centralized control.
The client turns on the heating as soon as they land at the airport and his house is comfortably warm by the time he gets home. The nine radiators provide luxurious heat that is "clean with no noise and no blowing air". The whole-home heating solution was installed for the cost of two heat pumps.
