WHAT IS CENTRAL HEATING
Central heating is a heating system that heats your home from one central point and then circulates that heat to the rooms within your home.
KE KELIT Climate Control specialises in “Hydronic Central Heating.” This is when a central heat source such as a boiler or hot water heat pump heats water in a central location. The heated water is then circulated through a network of pipes to underfloor heating or radiators.
Heat Source (Boiler)
Standard efficiency gas boilers can no longer be installed in Europe.
However, they are still heavily promoted in New Zealand because of the perceived price advantage - but it’s a false economy.
Energy efficient condensing boilers can reduce operating costs by up to 35% compared to standard efficiency heat sources. So, any increase in capital cost is very easily offset by reduced operating costs.
At KE KELIT, we only design systems with the highest quality energy efficient boilers from European supplier Viessmann.
Heat Emitter (Radiator)
Perfectly suited for New Zealand’s unpredictable weather, Radiators provide high performance, rapid heat-up times and healthy, radiant heat without forcing dust allergens around your home. KE KELIT offer a diverse and stylish range of radiators and heated towel rails from European supplier Vogel & Noot.
Heat Emitter (Underfloor Heating)
In recent years Underfloor Heating has been widely acknowledged as one of the most effective and efficient methods of heating. Underfloor heating’s superior efficiency means that your running costs will be significantly lowered so the ongoing savings on your energy bills quickly outweigh the initial outlay.
Underfloor Heating is also extremely discrete. With nothing showing above floor level, it does not interfere with either your living space or your décor. This leaves you free to make the most of every square foot of your floor and wall space without compromising comfort.
THE BENEFITS OF CENTRAL HEATING
Central heating provides plenty of benefits for you and your family
Environment & Energy
Central heating systems require much less energy to heat homes because water holds significant amounts of energy and transfers energy extremely well, resulting in economical operation and lower energy consumption in the form of much friendlier power/gas bills.
Although not mandatory in New Zealand our central heating systems designed in accordance with European standards provide optimised performance, reduce energy consumption and C02 emissions and provide ultimate climate control.
Central heating provides your home with even, radiant heat with no cold spots. No forced air circulation means no dust or allergens are distributed making central heating the healthier choice and ideal for people who suffer from allergies.
Central heating warms your whole home through silent, radiant heat delivered through underfloor heating, and or radiators. Such radiant warmth is affordable luxury when delivered through a well-designed and easy to use programmable control system.
