Christchurch Heat Pumps After The Earthquakes
The 2016 Canterbury earthquakes devastated Kaikoura and were felt right across New Zealand. Our hearts go out to those affected families, as many of us in Christchurch are forced to relive memories we’d much rather forget.
We know what it’s like to have our homes shaken and our lives turned upside down. Unfortunately, if you want to live in Christchurch or wider Canterbury, it seems we must accept earthquakes as part of life. We can’t prevent earthquakes in Christchurch, so here are some tips to help recover from them.
How's Your Heat Pump?
- Pipes can rupture
- Pipes shear from the nut
What should you do if your heat pump has stopped working after the earthquakes? Don’t call a cowboy who will try sell you a new heat pump. Contact the friendly team at Heat Pumps NOW.

Whether the pipes have ruptured or sheared from the nut, the same fix is needed. Heat Pumps NOW can replace or repair the copper pipes and refill the gas in your residential heat pump for between $400 and $600. The cost will depend on how much pair-coil piping you need, and access to the outdoor and indoor heat pump units.
Commercial Heat Pump Repairs
If your commercial heat pumps have stopped working, Heat Pumps NOW can still help. We may need height protection equipment or organised access depending on the site.
Contact Heat Pumps NOW for a free, no obligations quote for your commercial premises.
In a very serious earthquake it’s possible furniture, items or debris could hit your indoor or outdoor heat pump units.
Liquefaction can also get into ground-level outdoor units and cause serious problems.
In those scenarios, you may need a new heat pump. You should know if the problem is serious because your heat pump won’t turn on or won’t blow air at all.
Either way, let us know and Heat Pumps NOW can take a look.
