Service features

Heating standards

New Zealand regulations require one or more fixed heaters to directly heat the main living room. They need to be of a specific type and capacity. Our engineers use industry assessment tools to calculate the right system for the space. As heat pumps are the most energy efficient heater to run, with a long in-service life, they are a popular choice for rental properties.

Ventilation standards

New Zealand regulations target mould and dampness in rental homes, as they are harmful for tenants’ health (as well as to your property). All kitchens and bathrooms must have either an extractor fan that vents air to the outside or continuous mechanical ventilation. Our team can recommend an HRV system that will meet the standards and protect your property from internal moisture damage.

Protecting your investment

The right interior heating and ventilation systems will help keep your rental house or apartment in good condition, attract and retain high-quality tenants, and ensure you comply with the legislation and avoid fines. SnowTemp’s qualified engineers will assess the specific requirements of your property and recommend a heating and/or ventilation system that will make it compliant.
