Aircon & Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are the best way to heat and cool Christchurch homes and apartments. Energy-efficient and quiet, they keep interiors comfortable and healthy all year round.

We visit your house or apartment to understand your heating and cooling needs, checking room dimensions to ensure you get the right-sized unit. Our Christchurch heat pump service is legendary, with vehicles fully stocked for fast and effective installation and servicing, and with individually tailored maintenance programmes that increase the lifespan of your heat pump.

Heat pump installations Christchurch

SnowTemp are experts in heating and cooling systems and can supply a wide range of heat pumps – from high-wall, floor-mount and ceiling cassette systems to under-ceiling, hot water and fully ducted systems.

Made to last

At SnowTemp we install heat pumps that are reliable, durable and quiet – built to last with the latest technology. While energy-saving in themselves, they’ve also been produced in eco-friendly factories which minimise CO2 emissions in manufacturing processes.

Cost efficient

Our heat pumps help minimise energy consumption in the home by automatically sensing the conditions and running accordingly. New technology ensures less energy is used to maintain set temperatures. And by setting timers and keeping the temperature consistent, you can save on heating bills.

Healthier air

Modern heat pumps filter indoor air to reduce the amount of allergens you inhale. Better for asthma and allergy sufferers, their advanced filtration systems make interiors cleaner and healthier for the whole family.


“The service we received was amazing and the installation went very smoothly and neatly. They cleaned up after each day and worked around our schedule. We were very pleased with the final installation.”

- Riley Nelson

“We had our heat pumps reinstalled after renovating our home by these guys. SnowTemp were friendly and were able to do the job straight away. They also serviced our Heat Pumps and gave us advice on running them and keeping them clean. The heat pumps are working as good as new now and I have confidence we have no issues. Thanks. You deserve the 5 stars”.

- Sam Malins

“The house just feels dry, warmer and smells fresh, we are so pleased we made this decision to put this unit in. Thank you.”

- Paula-Marie and Andrew Dorbon

Our approach

We talk and listen

From the first call and home assessment, we work with you to decide on your heating, cooling and ventilation needs.

We measure and check

We visit your space to measure up and give you a verbal indication on price and systems. Once we’re back at the office, we follow up with a written quote.

We provide options

Our knowledge of the local climate means we can recommend the best product options. We carefully consider aesthetics – exactly where heat pumps can be located, and where we can best hide the exterior unit. For ventilation systems, we discuss and recommend vent and switch locations.

We book your installation

When you’re ready to book, we can typically install within a week. Once we’re at your place, it takes a day to install a typical heat pump or around three days for a ducted system.

We remember you

Our customer database records the make and model of your appliance or system, complete with as-built diagrams and photos. We’re always here when you need us, for regular maintenance too.

Free home assessment

Site visits are our point of difference. They allow us to fully understand your needs, so our engineers can assess and size your system accurately. We’ll provide a written quote and brochures detailing your unit options, so you can make an informed choice.

Servicing and maintenance for longevity

We keep heating, cooling and ventilation systems running efficiently all year around with annual servicing. SnowTemp engineers travel with a full kit of parts to fix systems when they break down.
