Finding the best heat pump for your family is the key to a warm and healthy home. Wintery Christchurch weather is chilly, so heat pumps are what you need to protect your family from those sharp, biting winds. There are plenty of heat pumps to choose from, but here’s how you’ll find the best one for you.
With winter fast approaching Christchurch, it’s time to set the record straight and bust some home heating myths
When it comes to heating your Christchurch home, you have plenty of options. To help you choose the right heating solution for you, consider the following questions: Which heater produces the most heat? Which is the most cost-effective? How much is the upfront cost?
What if we told you that there are ways to save while keeping warm and healthy over winter in Christchurch? These three simple tips can help you use your heat pump more energy efficiently.
You may be putting your health at risk by drying your winter washing indoors.
Most of us do it – it’s difficult to find sunny days in Christchurch to dry your washing outside during winter, so we turn to drying our washing inside instead.
But recent research is showing this way of drying washing is contributing to potential growth of mould and dust mites in your home.
Do you own rental properties in Christchurch? Are you aware of changes to the Residential Tenancies Act? What are you doing to make your rental properties warmer and drier?
Damp homes are unhealthy homes. It’s as simple as that. Unfortunately when winter hits Christchurch, we’re less motivated to open up the windows and air out the house. Even if you wipe all the condensation off your windows every morning, the damp air indoors makes colds, flu and breathing issues more likely. So what’s the solution?
It should come as no surprise that you’re more likely to fall sick in Christchurch during the colder months.
Lots of illnesses are caused by condensation and mould. When inhaled or on contact with your skin, some mould and mildew can cause allergic reactions, skin irritations, trouble breathing or asthma attacks. Small children and elderly people are even more susceptible. In fact, poor health conditions are directly linked to cold, damp living situations in Christchurch. So what can we do?
It’s sad that in New Zealand’s consumer culture, too often it’s easier to throw away and buy brand new than it is to have something fixed. We think that’s a shame, which is why Heat Pumps NOW has a dedicated repair technician in Christchurch to fix your heat pumps and help them last longer.
With that in mind, before you give us a call and tell us your heat pump needs fixing, here are a few things to look for.
It’s never a good feeling. You turn your heat pump on and all you see is flashing lights, but no warm or cool air comes out. What do you do?
