Tips to stay warm in autumn

Sadly summer is ended as it opens the door to the cooler months of autumn and winter. Every year when Autumn comes, we start to think about home heating solutions. Environmental impacts and rising energy prices make finding a way to keep your home warm during the colder months challenging.

Keeping your home warm and avoiding health problems can be more difficult in Christchurch and most of New Zealand than in other parts of the world. Much of the cold work is lost due to insufficient or insufficient insulation and ventilation. You don’t need the most expensive, high-quality heat pump in your home to feel warm. There are some simple things you can do to make your Christchurch home warmer and easier to heat in the autumn.


Insulation will go some way in helping keep the desired temperature in your house by protecting it against cold in winter and excess heat in summer. One efficient way to improve insulation is by adding curtains to keep the room warm in autumn. Insulated wood floors can also prevent heat dissipation. Carpets and rugs can help too as an extra layer of insulation to keep your room warm. Underfloor or ceiling insulation can be upgraded, but there is an easier way to warm your home.

Heat pumps

Heat pumps can quickly heat or cool a home and maintain a temperature throughout the day with ease. High wall heat pumps can spread and feed filtered air evenly throughout the room keeping you and your home warm, healthy and dry. Use the timer function to turn the unit on just before you get up in the morning or before you return from work in the evening to have a comfortable house all the time throughout the day. They are a perfect addition to families who want a more comfortable home life.

Utilise the daytime sun

You can make the most of free solar heat by opening your curtains and blinds every morning. Opening windows offers the added benefit of ventilation in your home. It lets in fresh air, helping to remove mould, moisture and condensation. Unfortunately, on cloudy and rainy days this isn’t an option and that is another reason to add a heat pump in Auckland.
