WHAT IS CENTRAL HEATING?
Many people think that central heating is
a luxury they can't afford. But the cost of
installing and running a central heating system
is similar to the cost for installing and, later,
operating 2 to 3 heat pumps.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The heat source, usually a gas fired boiler,
often situated in the garage or laundry is
where the water is heated and the heat
distribution system is either a network of
looped pipes under the floor of the house, or a
system of pipes under the floor or in the walls
which connect to wall-mounted radiators. The
heat source pumps heated water through the
heat distribution system, which then releases
the heat gently into the home.
The boiler pumps heated water through
the under floor pipes or into the radiators,
which then release their heat gently into the
Because there is no forced air movement,
there are no draughts, hot and cold spots
or noisy fans to content with. The heat is
passive and unobtrusive. It warms objects
and fabric within the room.
The process is superbly efficient. No water
is actually consumed, and once the water
is up to temperature the boiler modulates
or switches off - while heat continues to be
emitted from the pipes or radiators.
The System includes a programmable timer
so you can set the running times according
to your lifestyle.

practice standards on your
home and business. We
don't say 'it's done' until we
are proud of what we have
done" says Carl Sirs, Pipeline

I don't want to make this about

It's been a shaky start for residents
of Bristow Place, after the council
seemed unable to make up its mind
about whether or not they should
have recycling wheelie bins.
Residents of the Karori street were
originally told they would get the
wheelie bins, but were then
delivered recycling bags with only a
standard letter inside by way of

locals last week
to tell them their

During the confusion, resident
Helen Thomson phoned the council
to ask why they had been delivered
She was told the collection truck
could not turn safely in their no-exit
Mrs Thomson pointed out her rub-
bish had been collected by a private
wheelie bin company for over 10
years, but was told it made no differ-
That the council's letter, which
arrived with the bags, was not
specific to the street's needs had only
added insult to injury. The letter
simply listed the reasons they may
not be eligible for wheelie bins, but
added they have an opportunity to
give feedback in six months.
Mrs Thomson said she felt the
situation had been handled badly.
Our biggest objection is that
they've made such a hash of starting
things,'' she said.
And it's not as if we pay peanuts
and get monkeys -- we pay big rates.''
Her husband, Tony Thomson, said
They seem to have dissipated good-
will with their ham-fisted approach''.
Despite the frustration it had

grateful the council had changed its

the council did not think were safe.
We can't tell the private compan-

The council had eliminated any
