AT HARKNESS ELECTRICAL

HEAT TRANSFER KITS

If you’re struggling to achieve even warmth throughout your property during New Zealand’s cooler months, it might be time to consider a heat transfer kit.

These are efficient, easy-to-install solutions are designed to transfer heat around your home instead of wasting it.

This circulates warm air that would otherwise be wasted in your nominated rooms instead. The air inlet is usually placed opposite the heat source and picks up warm air through a ceiling vent, where an inline fan transfers it to its destination.

This warm air mixes with cooler air in the destination rooms and gradually warms it.

No matter the size of your home, the SmartVent range of products will ensure you and your family are warm in every room.
