After your ceiling and underfloor insulation is installed, make sure you have a great source of efficient heating and air conditioning perfect for the Dunedin climate. We recommend a powerful heat pump with cooling option to provide both heating and cooling options for Winter and Summer seasons. Having a wood burner is good security in case the power goes out and you need a good source of heating for warmth and handy for boiling water and cooking your food.

Insulation helps trap the warm or cool air in your home. 

Ceiling and underfloor insulation, awesome wall insulation, double glazed windows and  a modern ventilation system is the ideal formula.

Pump up the heat during winter and pump in the cool air during summer.  Your heat pump can be more efficient with regular servicing. To assist with efficiency, clean your heat pump regularly and set your heat pump to 19% degrees with the low fan setting during Winter. In a well insulated home, it takes the chill off the room and may use less power than on a higher temperature.
