Insulation Benefits for Christchurch
In cold Christchurch winters insulation can keep your home warmer and drier and can lower your energy bills. Insulation creates a barrier to reduce heat escaping your home during winter - this can lower use of electricity, wood or other heating fuel. Even more importantly a study by the Wellington School of Medicine & Health Sciences* confirmed that people who live in insulated homes are healthier.
Heat Pumps & other Heat Options
We offer a range of products to help your home be more energy efficient and avoid contributing to Christchurch air-quality issues. We have a choice of the best heat pumps brands: Mitsubishi Electric, Panasonic and Daikin - heat pumps being the most energy efficient form of electric heating costing as little as $1.50 a day to run.
If you have an open fire or log-burner we also have heat transfer systems that let you take excess heat from one room to increase the temperature in another improving the comfort of both. We also have thermostatically controlled panel heaters made in Norway that are an affordable option to keep the chill off the air for more comfortable and healthy bedrooms.
Christchurch Home Ventilation
A damp home can harm your health, is harder to heat and can deteriorate your home with mould and mildew. If natural ventilation is not an option in winter then home ventilation systems can control condensation and damp for a healthier more comfortable home. If you have crying windows with condensation then a ventilation system may be needed in your home.
The benefits of SmartVent's Evolve ventilation system for Christchurch homes are particularly strong since fresh (cold) air is used to ventilate rooms to manage condensation. On very cold Christchurch nights you can use temperature and humidity sensors to ensure your comfort is not compromised.
Our Christchurch team can visit you in your home anywhere in the greater Christchurch region including Kaiapoi, Banks Peninsula, Rangiora, Methven and as far south as Ashburton.Here
Testimonials from Christchurch Customers
"I have just had my home insulated in both roof and underfloor.
The 3 young tradesmen arrived at the expected time this morning and worked continually without a break for 3 hours to complete the work. All the work was done efficiently, quietly and courteously. Of course I have yet to discover the effectiveness of the insulation but already I have noticed a difference in the acoustics of our home and perhaps a slight warming of the atmosphere on this slightly cooler day.
But may I say how impressed I am with your service and the courteous and efficient work performed by your three young tradesmen. I highly recommend your work in insulation. Thank you Smart Energy Solutions."
"Our house has been miraculously transformed! It’s remarkable what just insulation does, our children want to sleep in their own beds in their own rooms and they didn’t wake up this morning and play ‘smoking’! The condensation wasn’t worth wiping off. Thank you!
Our family arrive from the islands next week, this is just what we needed. And with 60% off we could afford it, not sure about the heating unit but will keep it in mind for next year, still lapping the insulation up! Thanks"
