Why Choose Central Heating

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 recommends 21°C for a healthy living environment, a standard which is only achievable throughout your home with central heating.

24hrs, 7days a week automated temperature control keeps your home warm and comfortable when it is intended. The home owner has the ability to program any desired temperature for different times of the day, 7 days a week.

How does central heating work?

The heat source whether it be a boiler (1) or a heat pump, heats water and silently pumps it around the heating circuit. Either radiators (2) and maybe towel rails (3) or an underfloor (4) circuit radiates and convects warmth into the living spaces. A 7 day programmable room thermostat (5) fully automates the system according to your individual preferences.

In some central heating systems it is possible to load share the heat source and connect it to a hot water cylinder (6) for the production of domestic hot water. Solar panels (7) can also be integrated into the system to supplement domestic hot water production and reduce running costs.
