Kiwis returning from overseas and Europeans and Brits arriving to live here are used to central heating. They’ve created a demand for radiator central heating systems which are a good choice for many existing and new homes.
The principles and equipment used are the same as an underfloor heating system... except the water is circulated to radiators mounted on the walls rather than tubes in the floor.
There are usually one or two radiators per room depending on the size of the room. We have a wide selection of radiator sizes and heat output. Usually a gas boiler is used to heat the water and there is a programmable thermostat for overall control with individual thermostats on each radiator.
It’s possible to combine radiator heating and underfloor heating which may suit a multilevel home or one with both timber and concrete floor substates.
Domestic hot water heating can also be added.
