Warm and Cool has been involved in the heating business for over 20 years and in that time we believe we have installed floor heating in more buildings in Otago and Southland, than any other company.
We have installed central floor heating systems powered by coal, gas, diesel and wood pallets in over 700 Otago and Southland homes, but in the last 3 years the industry has seen a revolution incentral floor heating with the development of very economical Aerothermal hot water heat pumps which truly are a "no-brainer" when it comes to heating your home!
Warm and Cool is experienced in the configuration, installation and maintenance of all aspects of domestic heating, cooling and hot water. Warm and Cool have access to a variety of cost-saving technologies from simple inverter heat pumps to micro-hydro,wind generation and photo-voltaic electrical systems.
Infloor Heating / Central Heating / Aerothermal
Water-fed heated floors radiate warmth from the floor up as opposed to most other heating forms of heating that create a build up of heat at ceiling height. Radiant warmth heats the floor, the carpet, the furniture, the walls and you, rather than heating just the air.
Warm and Cool can pair your radiant floor with a fuel efficientdiesel, wood, coal or wood pallet fueled boiler; or alternatively we can help you combine the advantages of radiant floors and the incredible economy of an Air to Water Aerothermal heat pump to receive unbeatable value for money.
Air-conditioner / Heat Pumps
The benefits of heat pump technology are well understood. However there often exists misunderstanding regarding what type and size of heat pump to install. Warm and Cool is happy to assist with all aspects of selection, sizing and installation of heat pumps; and is happy to address your questions such as:
- Should the outdoor unit be situated in a sunny, northern position?
- Should I run a heat pump all day or turn it off?
- Do I need to clean my heat pump?
Water Heating - Solar & Heat Pump
Warm and Cool represents SunFlow Solar Systems - quality EECA grant approved solar hot water heatingsystems that perform at the very top end of the market for real energy gain and dollar savings, designed to handle the harshest extremes of weather experienced in New Zealand.
The same heat pump that powers your radiant infloor heating can also be diverted to heat your hot water cylinder. Such Aerothermal systems offer great performance with incredible economy.
There has been strong promotion of HRV ventilation systems in New Zealand using "so-called" warm air from your roof-space. There is however a complete lack of evidence that roof-space positive pressure HRV ventilation systems provide any heat to homes in the South Island in winter. Ventilate instead with a balanced pressure, genuine heat recovery system. Don't be fooled by a high pressure sale pitch and get the facts from Warm and Cool first.
