Adding radiators to your home adds new life to your living spaces
The Value of Retro-Fitting a Central Heating System
Many homes need a little extra renovating to bring them up to date, make them warmer, and improve the living comfort, occupant well-being and value of the home.
Central heating systems can easily be retro-fitted into homes with access under the floor; what’s more, you don’t even need to be doing any other renovating at the same time. Because traditional South African homes are neither well insulated nor heated, it is also worthwhile to upgrade the insulation in addition to retro-fitting a warm water central heating system.
Radiator systems are best suited to retro-fitted installations as underfloor heating usually requires the pipes being laid in the concrete before building.
Things to Consider for House Heating
- Factor in these issues when planning to retro-fit a central heating system in your existing home:
- Do you have the space in a laundry, garage or potentially outside for a heat source such as a
liquid fuel, gas, biomass boiler or heat pump?
- Have you included the cost of heating in your renovation budget?
- Have you considered possible changes to the building consent so that the renovation work
includes central heating?
A comfortable home for the whole family, no matter the weather
