Autumn is already giving way to winter as a wild dose of snowfalls and downpours started rocking the southern parts of New Zealand. It’s going to get brutally cold pretty soon with the early arrival of winter.
While we are having some briefly heavy rain showers here in Auckland, we’re still expecting weeks of cool, breezy weather ahead. It’s the best time to have your central heating system checked before you’ll rely on it most when the temperatures drop.
Preparing your radiant heating system in advance not only ensures your comfort but also your home’s energy efficiency. You can save between 10 to 20% on your home heating bill just by ensuring the maximum efficiency of your system. Checking your heating system early in the warmer months also helps you know if there are issues that might require repairs.
Here at Euro Plumbing we see an increase in demand for heating repairs during wintry weather each year. Most people don’t prepare their homes adequately for the winter and find themselves beating the peak heating service rush. It makes sense to have maintenance checks and services completed as early as possible.
Anything that heats up can be a potential hazard. You’re dealing with hot water, high-pressure steam or gas, which can make troubleshooting dangerous. Ditch the DIY mentality and call a professional in to service your radiant heating system. Also, you don’t want to cause any damage to your flooring or heating equipment by attempting to do anything on your own.
The best you can do is to run your radiant heater on minimum setting in autumn, so you don’t shock the system when you put it on full blast during the winter season.
This is something most homeowners think they can do without, but that’s not actually the case. Central Heating NZ will test your central heating system for efficiency and safety. This ensures your radiant panels are thoroughly clean and all components and controls work properly. Regular central heating servicing and maintenance also prolongs the life of your central heating system and keeps your warranty valid.
If you’re worried about the servicing cost, you can schedule annual maintenance in the months leading to winter so you’re not paying additional money for winter proofing your heating system.
Retrofitted central heating system
Radiant central heating is a safe and reliable heating option. If you don’t already have a system in your home, now is the perfect time to install one. Our systems can be fully retrofitted onto any typical Auckland home powered with gas, solar or heat pumps.
Because radiant panel heaters have the quickest response time and can be individually controlled for each room, having them in your home can result in cost and energy savings. From your heat source, we will discreetly install interconnecting piping that will link a series of panel heaters, providing your home a total heating solution.
