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.
With Wellington being the windiest region in New Zealand, Wellington average a low of only 7°C in July and can drop as low as 4°C compounded with cool temperatures and 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. Wellington’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.
Wellington's central heating preference
When it comes to providing heat for central heating in Wellington, gas boilers are the preferred choice. Wellington is blessed with a comprehensive reticulated gas network, which makes both the gas boiler running and installation costs very reasonable. Air-to-water heat pumps are a great solution for their versatility and low running costs and are commonly used for underfloor heating but are also suitable for heat with radiators too. 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. Wellington 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.
If you're thinking of renovating, radiator heating is a great option for you due their ease of installation and the variety of different styles and sizes available. They can respond quickly to Wellington’s weather changes, while underfloor heating can provide a steady warmth against inclement weather. Underfloor is most commonly used in new builds but Wellington homes with new extensions are also well suited to using radiators in the existing parts of homes and underfloor in the new extension.
