Contact us to arrange a time to visit our office to experience the heat for yourself.
How does central heating work?
The heat source, usually a gas fired boiler, often situated in the garage or laundry, heats the water. The heat distribution system used by central heating is either a network of looped pipes under the floor of the house, or a system of pipes underfloor or in the walls, connecting to wall-mounted radiators.
The heat source pumps the heated water through the heat distribution system, releasing the heat gently into the home
Benefits of central heating
The heat is passive and unobtrusive. It warms objects and fabric within the room.The process is superbly efficient. No water is actually consumed, and once the water is up to temperature the boiler modulates or switches off - while heat continues to be emitted from the pipes or radiators
The control system includes a programmable timer so you can set the running times to suit your lifestyl

The 5 Percenters
According to a recent study completed here in New Zealand there are only 5% of New Zealanders who have Central Heating in their home.
Back in the 70s and 80s, us Kiwi's were brought up by our parents snuggled around the fireplace covered with blankets with our books or watching TV.
Bedtime came and so did our woolen jerseys and our thick socks not to mention mountains of blankets to keep us warm all night in our ice boxes for bedrooms that were so cold you could see your own breath.
Now nearly 50 years later 95 percent of Kiwis are still living like this, with some of the highest rates of Asthma the world our homes are some of the coldest in the world.
Technology has come so far in the last 50 years but when it comes to heating New Zealand hasn't progressed far.
Here at Pipeline we have a real passion for Radiator Heating and are striving to change the kiwi mindset when it comes to heating our homes and keeping our families warm.
Radiators VS Heatpumps
Radiators are extremly effective at heating your whole home to the desired temperature. Heatpumps only heat 1-2 rooms and leave cold spots in your home. The air flow is also different, with Radiators the warm air is radiated into your home, while heat pumps force the warm air into your home.
Radiators are a more costly investment than heatpumps, but they are a far more superior way to heat your whole home.
Is your home up to standard?
- A minimum of 18 ˚C, or a minimum of 20 ˚C for more vulnerable groups like children, the elderly and people who are ill.
- A minimum of 16 ˚C in your bedroom overnight.
The majority of homes in New Zealand do no meet these standards, our country preforms badly on these guidelines, one of the reasons why we have such a high rate of Asthma in our country.
A radiator heating system in your home will make sure that your home is a healthy one for everyone who lives in it.
