Summer was more than a tad strange this year! While there were places in New Zealand that basked in the long drawn out hot days of a traditional summer, most of us were left wondering if it would ever truly arrive, and when it did show up for 2 or 3 days at a time, just how long it was going to stay around.
The days are certainly starting to cool off and with the change of Daylight Savings just around the corner, winter is apparent.
Assuming winter won’t come with the same nonchalance that summer did, winter in New Zealand is long, cold, and most definitely wet!
Is your home up to the task of keeping your family warm and healthy during this bleak season? Not only is warmth necessary for a happy family but many places in New Zealand suffer from dampness and the associated growth of mould and mildew.
The beginning of autumn, which is where we currently are, is a great time to consider how you are going to heat your home this winter and by what means. Growing up, we used to all huddle around a single heater that was based in the lounge, or if we were lucky mum or dad would start and then stoke the open fire so that the whole home would feel warm (unless you were one of the unlucky ones with their bedroom at the back of the house!).
In 2017 your heating options are many and varied. Central heating is becoming more and more popular as a way of keeping your home warm and dry, therefore damp free. It is no longer something only considered by the rich and famous.
Central heating systems warm every room evenly so that the four-seasons-in-one-day weather stays outside, not inside. If you’re looking for a clean, efficient heating system with reasonable running costs, central heating is your answer.
No matter the size of your home, big or small, or the size of your budget, we can get your home feeling roasty-toasty before winter.
Just imagine coming home from a day out and about to a home that is temperate. No longer do you need to keep extra layers and thick socks and slippers on. You can pad about your home in ultimate comfort.
Don’t let winter 2017 creep up and take you by surprise. Be like a boy scout and be prepared! If you have dismissed central heating before, maybe 2017 is the year you investigate it properly and make comfort a way of life for you and your family.
