• By Emily O’Connell<br />

THE HALSWELL Domain skate<br />

park won’t be ready until the end<br />

of the year because of a resource<br />

consent hold up.<br />

Its consent, which is still pending,<br />

is awaiting further information.<br />

City council head of resource<br />

consents John Higgins said “the<br />

application is with a commissioner<br />

to make a decision. He has<br />

however asked a question of the<br />

applicant which the applicant is<br />

responding to.”<br />

City council head of parks Brent<br />

Smith said subject to gaining consent,<br />

the Halswell Domain skate<br />

park will be built in stages, with<br />

construction set to start at the<br />

end of August. He said the skate<br />

park would then be completed by<br />

Christmas. The Halswell Domain<br />

concept design includes a skate<br />

bowl, rising quarter pipe, mini<br />

ramp, learner ledge, fitness equipment,<br />

seating and a shade shelter.<br />

Council ‘failed the board’ – emails<br />

Mega centre<br />

consultation<br />

woes revealed<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

EMAILS SHOW some<br />

community board members<br />

were unhappy with the public<br />

consultation process for the<br />

$35.7 million Hornby mega<br />

centre’s location.<br />

The emails, released to <strong>Western</strong><br />

<strong>News</strong> under the Local Government<br />

Official Information<br />

and Meetings Act, reveal four<br />

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton<br />

Community Board members<br />

wanted a second round of public<br />

consultation after learning the<br />

cost to remediate Kyle Park.<br />

The facility’s proposed<br />

location on Denton Park has<br />

been highly controversial with<br />

sports clubs fearful of losing<br />

their home ground to the new<br />

Hornby library, customer services<br />

and leisure centre.<br />

The remediation of Kyle Park<br />

was a big factor in the decision<br />

on where the centre is to be<br />

located.<br />

On June 23, board deputy<br />

chairwoman Helen Broughton<br />

emailed city council chief executive<br />

Karleen Edwards asking her<br />

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER<br />

DISSATISFIED: Debbie Mora (left), Helen Broughton, Ross<br />

McFarlane and Mike Mora wanted another round of public<br />

consultation on the Hornby mega centre’s location.<br />

or a general manager to attend<br />

a briefing after receiving “the<br />

worst possible outcome.”<br />

“Kyle Park is the preferred<br />

option yet we now know it probably<br />

cannot be used. If we shift<br />

away from Kyle, we will need to<br />

go out for a further round and<br />

look absolutely foolish in the<br />

public’s eyes. City council management<br />

has failed the board,”<br />

she said.<br />

Mrs Broughton emailed<br />

the board members two days<br />

later suggesting they should do<br />

another round of public consultation<br />

with just Denton and<br />

Warren parks.<br />

“I suspect many voted for Kyle<br />

as a way to remove the threat<br />

from Denton . . . I believe the<br />

board is in political if not legal<br />

difficulties if it does not undertake<br />

further consultation. There<br />

will be outrage from the clubs,”<br />

she said in an email.<br />

Board chairman Mike Mora,<br />

and members Ross McFarlane<br />

and Debbie Mora agreed.<br />

“We would be “hung drawn<br />

(and) quartered” (sic) if we do<br />

not face up to the public now<br />

and potentially someone may<br />

consider it grounds to appeal<br />

our actions or inactions,” Mr<br />

McFarlane said in an email.<br />

In July, Ms Mora asked city<br />

council staff about posing<br />

another question to submitters<br />

about Kyle Park not being an<br />

option.<br />

She was told the city council<br />

was in “the process of seeking<br />

legal advice.”<br />

A city council spokeswoman<br />

told <strong>Western</strong> <strong>News</strong> the<br />

community board was given the<br />

legal advice at the end of July,<br />

but was unable to divulge<br />

what it was as it’s “legally<br />

privileged”.<br />

“A formal resolution to<br />

re-consult was not made by<br />

any board members and the<br />

community board made the<br />

decision to recommend Denton<br />

Park as the preferred option,”<br />

the spokeswoman said.<br />

RICCARTON HIGH SCHOOL<br />

Te Kura Tuarua o Pūtaringamotu<br />

FIRST CULTURE FEST A HUGE SUCCESS<br />

Image above: Riccarton Primary School’s Kapa<br />

Haka group performs for the crowd.<br />

A wonderful celebration of our school and<br />

community’s ethnic diversity was held in the<br />

assembly hall on Friday, March 23.<br />

As the school day came to a close, students,<br />

teachers, parents and people from the local<br />

community came together at RHS to enjoy<br />

exciting and colourful cultural performances,<br />

RECOGNISING EXCELLENCE<br />

and sample an array of ethnic foods at the firstever<br />

Culture Fest. The audience lapped it up,<br />

clapping and cheering for the performers and<br />

tucking into the tasty food.<br />

Suggested by Principal Neil Haywood, the idea<br />

for Culture Fest grew out of last year’s Cultural<br />

Walkthrough, where ethnic group leaders were<br />

brought together to discuss ways to celebrate<br />

the cultural diversity of the local area and<br />

create a sense of belonging for our new New<br />

Zealand residents.<br />

As a community event, it was a collaboration<br />

between the school and the Riccarton Public<br />

Library, with the school’s librarian Sally Blake<br />

and Cultural Diversity Facilitator Lulette Carney<br />

organising the food and entertainment, and<br />

the library, along with community groups and<br />

organisations, providing information about<br />

their particular areas of interest.<br />

KEEpING THEIR LANGUAGE ALIvE<br />

An innovative pilot project has been introduced<br />

to Riccarton High School this year – a Filipino<br />

Literacy and Culture Class.<br />

This followed a meeting in early February when<br />

the idea for the class was presented to parents<br />

to gauge their interest, and enrolments were<br />

sought.<br />

As a result, 35 of the school’s 102 Filipino<br />

students from Years 9-13 spend about an<br />

hour every Thursday after school with Filipina<br />

teacher aide Delia Talili, studying their native<br />

language, Tagalog, and their country’s culture.<br />

DECADES-LONG TRADITION CONTINUES<br />

Head of ESOL Angela Bland says research has<br />

shown that maintaining their native language is<br />

important for immigrant students in achieving<br />

academic success.<br />

A community project, it includes similar classes<br />

being held at Riccarton Primary School, with<br />

both principals supportive of the initiative.<br />

Generous funding for the first year has come<br />

from the Riccarton Rotary Youth Trust, Lavida<br />

and Life Resources and was used to provide<br />

laptops, Delia’s wages and a tasty afternoon<br />

tea, which rounds off the class every week.<br />

A tradition that began way back in 1959 still<br />

continues, as students from Riccarton High<br />

School and Kaikorai Valley College in Dunedin<br />

compete against each other in summer and<br />

winter sporting tournaments.<br />

Participants from the two schools travel to<br />

each others’ home turf each of the two seasons<br />

and year about, with the most recent summer<br />

tournament being held at RHS on March 15 &<br />

16. Some 70-80 boys and girls from each school<br />

competed in athletics, futsal, tennis, touch,<br />

volleyball, and girls in cricket.<br />

The winter tournament will be held in Dunedin<br />

on June 14 & 15.<br />

Sports co-ordinator David Biddick describes it<br />

as the pinnacle of the school’s sporting events,<br />

and one that the students always look forward<br />

to.<br />

Other annual interschool tournaments are held<br />

with Westland High School and Geraldine High<br />

School.<br />

OUR pEOpLE<br />

SAYING FAREWELL<br />

Our long-serving sports co-ordinator David<br />

Biddick is retiring after 22 years service at<br />

RHS. After joining us as cricket coach in<br />

1996, he was asked by the principal to take<br />

on the sports co-ordinator role, which he<br />

started in 2000.<br />

That saw David organising all 34 sports<br />

RHS offers, helping students reach their full<br />

potential through representing the school<br />

in their chosen sport, and encouraging<br />

students of all sporting abilities to<br />

participate.<br />

He extends a ‘big thank you’ to teachers and<br />

parents, whose support through coaching<br />

and management he says is a major<br />

contributor to the school’s sporting success.<br />

David firmly believes that participation in<br />

sport and the values that underpin it, like<br />

teamwork and fair play, provides students<br />

with a strong foundation for life in the<br />

wider world.<br />

David leaves RHS on <strong>April</strong> 13 and looks<br />

forward to travelling overseas with his wife.<br />

We wish him all the best.<br />

Riccarton High School’s Kokiri facilty on the<br />

West Coast near Lake Brunner has served its<br />

purpose well as the Outdoor Education Centre<br />

for our Years 9 and 10 students. However,<br />

given the distance from Christchurch, and the<br />

increased gold mining and forestry in the area,<br />

the Board was looking for an alternative, more<br />

suitable facility.<br />

“We became aware that the Boys’ Brigade<br />

camp at Birch Hill in North Canterbury was<br />

up for sale and we thought that would suit us<br />

perfectly,” principal Neil Haywood says. “It’s<br />

very close to the Ashley Gorge and Mt Thomas<br />

Forest Park walking tracks.<br />

We are very excited to have a facility 45<br />

minutes from school, which will have a lot of<br />

other uses too, such as for geography field<br />

trips.”<br />

Work needs to be done to bring it up to the<br />

new building standard to ensure its safety,<br />

and the current capacity for 24 students will<br />

be extended to accommodate 35-40 students.<br />

Funding for this work will come from the sale<br />

of Kokiri.<br />

The opening of the new facility is planned for<br />

the start of the 2019 school year.<br />

Wendy’s workers may be<br />

forced into ‘industrial action’<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

WENDY’S STAFF may turn to<br />

industrial action if negotiations<br />

over lieu days break down.<br />

The move follows Lyttelton<br />

port workers striking over wages<br />

and rosters, and nurses saying<br />

strike action is likely after they<br />

rejected a pay offer from district<br />

health boards.<br />

The fast food workers’ move<br />

comes after a three-year battle<br />

over lieu days, prompted by<br />

Hornby Wendy’s staff member<br />

Rose Williams.<br />

She went to the Ministry<br />

of Business, Innovation and<br />

Employment with the lieu day<br />

issue after she had been working<br />

at the Hornby restaurant for a<br />

year.<br />

Mrs Williams said Wendy’s<br />

staff were not being given a lieu<br />

day after working on a public<br />

holiday.<br />

In November, the Employment<br />

Relations Authority ruled in<br />

favour of Mrs Williams and<br />

Wendy’s was found to have<br />

breached two sections of the<br />

Holidays Act 20<strong>03</strong>.<br />

Wendy’s was given a list of<br />

orders including giving past and<br />

present employees their days<br />

restaurants had opened.<br />

Unite Union, of which<br />

Mrs Williams is a delegate,<br />

has estimated it would cost<br />

Wendy’s $1.6 million to pay back<br />

employees’ leiu days.<br />

The union’s national director<br />

Mike Treen said it has sent a<br />

final terms of settlement to the<br />

fast food company.<br />

“If no final agreement can be<br />

achieved very soon, we will be<br />

forced to ask members to take<br />

industrial action in support of<br />

our claims,” he said.<br />

But Mr Treen says it might not<br />

come to that as he doesn’t know<br />

what Wendy’s “final position” is.<br />

“I don’t even know if there’s<br />

a problem with lieu days at<br />

Wendy’s actually because they<br />

haven’t come back,” he said.<br />

Wendy’s did not respond<br />

before deadline.<br />

A SMALL working<br />

“I think it’s likely [we’ll approve<br />

The recommendations<br />

include installing additional<br />

The report showed a decrease<br />

in victimisations in the area<br />

as well as physical and skill testing. The orientation is designed to help<br />

the students enjoy their homestay experience, to provide advice on how<br />

to proactively interact with their team-mates and to understand the New<br />

Zealand road rules - all in all, how to enjoy the next 22 weeks of their rugby<br />

adventure. The IRP has been running at Burnside High School from 2014 but<br />

has already produced Olympians in Sevens and male and female national<br />

team players in 7s and 15s.<br />

BHS PTA Uniform Shop<br />

The PTA Uniform Shop stocks new and second hand items. The shop<br />

is located at the front of the school in A1. Now is the time to purchase<br />

winter uniforms, all items are available at the shop.<br />

Opening Hours are:<br />

Monday lunchtime 1:00pm - 2:00pm<br />

Tuesdays after school 2.45pm - 4.00pm<br />

Wednesday 4th <strong>April</strong> after school 2.30pm - 4.00pm<br />

A visit from Seasprite helicopter<br />

The Navy Seasprite Helicopter is en route to the Warbirds Over Wanaka<br />

Airshow. When the opportunity arose for the Seasprite helicopter to make<br />

school visits on its way south, Burnside High School jumped at the chance.<br />

STEM activities and exhibitions<br />

Fifteen students from Ashburton College and Burnside High School<br />

recently gathered at the Burnside Campus for four days of Germantaught<br />

STEM activities and exhibitions (science, technology, engineering<br />

& mathematics).<br />

This opportunity was offered to all German-learning students from<br />

the two schools as part of the PASCH schools program through the<br />

Goethe-Institut, and was overseen by Goethe staff member Judith<br />

Geare.<br />

The foundation of the course was laid out on the first day, Friday,<br />

where Bianca Violet and Philipp Legner from Imaginary introduced<br />

the students to several computer programs based on fractals and<br />

polynomial graphing. From there the students were set free to think<br />

up their own exhibition projects and take them from paper sketches to<br />

reality over the next three days.<br />

With Christ The King School directly across the road they were also warmly<br />

welcomed over.<br />

As part of our career development programme, we invite many tertiary<br />

providers to speak with our students throughout the year, to provide them<br />

with a wide range of information and to assist them with their decision<br />

making. It is not often that they turn up in a helicopter!<br />

Today's helicopter visit was an amazing opportunity for 20 students who<br />

have expressed an interest in the Defence Force. They not only got to see a<br />

piece of the Defence Force in action; they also got to interact with the flight<br />

crew and pick their brains about the variety of occupations available. Many<br />

subject classes also benefited from the Seasprite’s visit, including Science<br />

classes discussing the transfer of energy that occurs during a helicopter take<br />

off; Physics classes discussing the rotor blades; and Mathematics classes with<br />

problem sets based around helicopters.<br />

We are grateful to the Defence Force for offering this opportunity to our<br />

school.<br />

Ideas ranged from metre-tall double pendulums to intricate optical<br />

illusions, something from every aspect of the STEM curriculum.<br />

The exhibits will be set up for viewing at the Burnside High School<br />

library until the end of Term 1 and then will travel down to Ashburton to<br />

allow all interested students (and keen maths teachers) to view, learn<br />

and interact.<br />

The $350,000 Knights Stream<br />

“We know there are a lot of<br />

young people in the local community<br />

who are very eager to get<br />

As part of the overall development<br />

of Knights Stream<br />

THE CITY council is looking for<br />

feedback on a proposal to install<br />

a toilet in Riccarton’s Harrington<br />

The placement of the new toilet<br />

has been selected to tie in with<br />

existing services, and visibility to<br />

Funding has become available<br />

to install a toilet with some new<br />

A COMMUNITY initiative<br />

by Housing New Zealand has<br />

expanded after support from<br />

the Hei Hei and Broomfield<br />

HNZ tenancy manager Zoe<br />

Wood, who lives and works in<br />

the area, devised the Tea and<br />

in<br />

August.<br />

Miss Wood<br />

wanted to<br />

demonstrate<br />

the kind of<br />

support HNZ<br />

can provide<br />

in a community.<br />

She started<br />

holding a monthly gathering<br />

for parents and carers of young<br />

children at 126 on the Corner<br />

– which is owned by the Hei<br />

Hei Broomfield Community<br />

Development Trust.<br />

Miss Wood said the community<br />

feedback had been overwhelming<br />

and two volunteers,<br />

impressed with the programme<br />

and its aims, had offered to<br />

come on board.<br />

This means the monthly programme<br />

is now weekly.<br />

And it’s not only locals who<br />

are supporting the programme<br />

– the city council has approved<br />

a $500 community grant so<br />

new toys can be bought for the<br />

group.<br />

Miss Wood was thrilled with<br />

the grant and ongoing support<br />

from families.<br />

“The objective of the group<br />

is to have our community mixing,<br />

Programme designed<br />

to get men cooking<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

A SIX-WEEK course<br />

teaching men to cook will<br />

start in Riccarton this<br />

month.<br />

Men2Cook founder<br />

James Bradshaw started<br />

the programme in Perth<br />

after he noticed a lot of<br />

older men, whose wives<br />

had passed away, couldn’t<br />

cook for themselves.<br />

Mr Bradshaw planned<br />

to start the programme<br />

in Riccarton in October<br />

but he has since moved to<br />

Australia.<br />

The course will now be<br />

led by chef Paul Meek,<br />

and participants will cook<br />

a meal and then eat it<br />

together.<br />

Oak Development Trust<br />

manager Carol Renouf<br />

says Mr Meek is very “passionate”<br />

about people and<br />

the programme.<br />

She said although the<br />

first course will be a pilot<br />

programme, they plan to<br />

keep it going.<br />

sleep apnoea, where<br />

the person actually<br />

stops breathing for<br />

short periods.<br />

It can cause<br />

SENIOR LIVING<br />

Centuries old folk remedy<br />

supports good health!<br />

A fermented liquid health tonic offers an array of powerful health<br />

benefits. It is none other than the popular apple cider vinegar or ACV.<br />

Since the time of Hippocrates – the<br />

“Father of Medicine” – ACV has been<br />

renowned for its curative properties.<br />

In his popular book “ARTHRITIS &<br />

FOLK MEDICINE”, DR. D.C. Jarvis<br />

reports how he found that Vermonters<br />

who regularly consumed ACV and Honey<br />

had excellent health with many putting in<br />

a vigorous day’s work on the farm even<br />

when well into their eighties. He also noted<br />

the effects of ACV and H on arthritis to be<br />

remarkable with many patients reporting<br />

almost total relief after taking a course<br />

of the mixture. Dr. Jarvis surmised that<br />

the acid and potassium in cider vinegar<br />

counteracted calcium deposits and helped<br />

the body control calcium use. He also noted<br />

that Vermonters who consumed ACV and<br />

H around meal time had excellent blood<br />

pressure and circulation. The reason he<br />

found was that protein foods thickened the<br />

blood and vinegar thinned it. As the blood<br />

thickens it cannot pass as easily and quickly<br />

through the blood vessels and capillaries.<br />

This poor blood flow would reduce cellular<br />

health by limiting nutrients to the cells as<br />

well as waste elimination from the cells.<br />

To prevent cell damage the body naturally<br />

increases blood pressure but this puts<br />

more stress on the blood vessels, organs<br />

and heart. Having ACV and H with meals<br />

will help prevent protein raising the blood<br />

pressure. It also contributes to a feeling<br />

of greater well-being because the thinner<br />

blood circulates quickly and more easily<br />

through the blood vessels. Dr. Jarvis found<br />

regular consumption of CV and H to be<br />

an excellent health tonic with numerous<br />

Health attributes.<br />

ACV is highly nutritious as it contains all<br />

the goodness of the apple in a form that is<br />

readily accepted by the bodyGood health<br />

starts with good digestion and assimilation<br />

of nutrients. ACV taken before food will<br />

stimulate and promote healthy digestion<br />

and assimilation of vital nutrients for good<br />

health. A well-functioning digestive system<br />

helps prevent disease by neutralising any<br />

toxic substances that enter the body.<br />

It is important to note not all ACV is<br />

produced in the traditional way and results<br />

are likely to prove disappointing with these<br />

other vinegars.<br />

Marshall’s Premium ACV & ACV<br />

with 20% Manuka Honey is produced in<br />

the traditional way. It is double strength so<br />

you can use less.<br />

HEALTH & BEAUTY<br />

The health<br />

effects of sugar<br />

Should we be alarmed or is this<br />

likely to be another area that science<br />

backtracks on?<br />

The answer to that question is Yes,<br />

we should be worried, there are real<br />

problems caused by the volume of sugar<br />

being consumed by the average person<br />

and when look back over the last decades<br />

the problem is getting worse, not better.<br />

developments in research and<br />

understanding the fields of nutrition<br />

and food safety change how we view<br />

products we consume and patterns of<br />

consumption can make the negative<br />

effects of foods more pronounced.<br />

while these advances should be<br />

embraced, as each development leads<br />

to better understanding and health<br />

outcomes it can also be frustrating to<br />

the average consumer who can feel like<br />

just when they ‘get’ a good healthy eating<br />

plan together, the rules change.<br />

The recommendations for sugar are a<br />

good example of how information can<br />

be confusing, some sources encourage<br />

the complete ban on all sugar containing<br />

products and others, such as the heart<br />

foundation recommend a reduction<br />

rather than complete removal.<br />

It’s not so confusing though really, at<br />

no time in history has sugar ever been<br />

presented as a healthy food, but as in the<br />

past it took more effort to consume sugar<br />

it was less of a problem, we could ‘get<br />

away with it’.<br />

In the past sugar was something that<br />

you could control through how much<br />

you added, in baking and to your cup of<br />

tea. This knowledge then transferred into<br />

the first generation of convenience food,<br />

if it was sweet, it had sugar in it.<br />

what we now face as a challenge is<br />

not that suddenly sugar is bad, but that<br />

it is added, often quietly, to many of the<br />

processed foods we consume, even when<br />

they aren’t sweet.<br />

The availability and often-reduced<br />

price of these foods compared to<br />

healthier option make them an easy<br />

choice to the time poor or uneducated<br />

consumer.<br />

There are some simple tips you can<br />

follow, including reading food labels;<br />

consuming as much food as possible<br />

in a state close to its natural form and<br />

avoiding sugary drinks. Consumers also<br />

need to be aware of marketing claims<br />

that do not provide the full nutritional<br />

picture of a product.<br />

A sensible place to start is by<br />

combining a diet low in processed food<br />

and sugar combined with regular activity<br />

What we now face as<br />

a challenge is not that<br />

suddenly sugar is bad, but<br />

that it is added, often quietly<br />

to many of the processed<br />

foods we consume, even<br />

when they aren’t sweet.<br />

as the path to long-term health.<br />

For more advice and direction to<br />

improve your health talk to your<br />

registered exercise professional, they can<br />

offer some advice and are able to refer<br />

you to sources of information and other<br />

nutritional professionals that you<br />

can trust.<br />

Summer cooling<br />

“Did you know your heat pump is an air<br />

conditioner?”<br />

BUT!! If you bought it for heating it will<br />

struggle to cool the area as cooling is always<br />

less output e.g. Mitsubishi Electric MSZGE42<br />

= 5kW heating and 4.2kW cooling. So always<br />

ask your installer if you want cooling as well as<br />

heating. We at Air Con Christchurch always<br />

advise what we have quoted for.<br />

Heating tips<br />

Select “Heat” on heat pump and set<br />

temperature at approximately 21 – 22 degrees<br />

with fan on Auto<br />

Cooling tips<br />

Select “Cooling” and set at 20 – 22 degrees this<br />

will save you up to 30% running costs and still<br />

be cool (try it and see). 16 degrees is too low.<br />

Heat pump cleaning is now due for<br />

the winter.<br />

HOME & HEATING<br />

Choosing the<br />

right heat pump<br />

for your home<br />

Whether it be a new build, or<br />

a retrofit, most homes include<br />

at least one heat pump, if not a<br />

whole heating solution. They can<br />

provide cheap, clean heat and are<br />

much more convenient than a log<br />

burner as you just need to press a<br />

button. But how do you decide<br />

what is best? Choosing the right<br />

sized heat pump is key to ensuring<br />

optimum comfort levels. Every<br />

situation varies and it is therefore<br />

important to get professional<br />

advice from heat pump experts.<br />

The range varies from wall<br />

mounted high walls, floor mounted systems,<br />

multi systems, ceiling cassettes, right through<br />

to ducted central heating systems allowing<br />

you to have a very discreet way of heating<br />

your whole home to a constant temperature<br />

throughout.<br />

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that is<br />

suitable for the size of the space you wish<br />

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to<br />

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area<br />

taken into consideration but also, insulation,<br />

building orientation, windows and ceiling<br />

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps<br />

available with different heating outputs so it is<br />

important to select<br />

the correct size for<br />

Heating is a major<br />

investment in your home<br />

and it is vital to get the<br />

right advice.<br />

your requirements<br />

that will handle<br />

the job but not<br />

be unnecessarily<br />

overpowered.<br />

Secondly, the<br />

location of your<br />

heat pump is also extremely important. The<br />

cheapest installation is a back to back where<br />

the outdoor unit is positioned directly behind<br />

the indoor unit however this is not necessarily<br />

always the best option. It is vital that the indoor<br />

unit is positioned in a place that will not be<br />

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is<br />

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people<br />

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly<br />

in their outdoor entertaining area or right<br />

outside their bedroom window.<br />

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands<br />

have come and gone over the years but there<br />

are a number of manufacturers who provide<br />

reputable and reliable products. All brands<br />

vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of<br />

systems and price, so it depends on your<br />

application as to which will be most suitable.<br />

Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu,<br />

Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are<br />

all reliable brands backed up by good technical<br />

after sales service.<br />

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an<br />

accredited installer. This will not only ensure<br />

correct installation of your heat pump, but also<br />

validate the manufacturers warranty.<br />

Other things to<br />

consider when<br />

choosing a heat pump<br />

are time clocks, ease<br />

of use of the remote<br />

controllers, air<br />

filtration and also wifi<br />

capabilities.<br />

Heating is a major<br />

investment in your home and it is vital to get<br />

the right advice.<br />

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,<br />

installation and servicing of all major brands<br />

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers<br />

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as<br />

to which system will suit your application<br />

the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no<br />

obligation quote and will come to your home<br />

to see what is required. Visit our website at<br />

www.enviromaster.co.nz.<br />

Fresh air<br />

in your home<br />

All houses require air exchange in order<br />

to stay fresh and dry. No one likes to live<br />

in a stuffy, smelly, damp home. Indoor air<br />

quality is important for the health of the<br />

occupants. Houses can have many sources of<br />

contaminants, such as bathrooms, kitchens,<br />

pets, smokers, and even furnishings. Opening<br />

the windows can refresh the air, but is not<br />

always an option for security reasons and can<br />

also lead to heat energy being lost to outside.<br />

Although older houses have small gaps around<br />

windows and doors, you want to be able to<br />

control the flow of air. You don’t want air<br />

coming in to the bathroom or kitchen and<br />

pushing the soiled air around the house. It<br />

is better to expel the air out of kitchens and<br />

bathrooms to outside. This will draw air in<br />

from the rest of the house to replace the air that<br />

has been removed.<br />

Modern houses are very airtight and<br />

theoretically require a source of incoming air<br />

to allow kitchen and bathroom extraction to<br />

work optimally. Ventilation systems should be<br />

low air velocity and low air pressure so as not<br />

to cause draughts.<br />

There are two main types of ventilation system:<br />

Positive pressure and Balanced pressure.<br />

Positive pressure systems, such as the Dry-<br />

Matic, bring filtered, warmed attic air into<br />

the house, which then percolates through the<br />

rooms, pushing the damper stale air out.<br />

Balanced pressure systems bring in a similar<br />

amount of air to the amount they exhaust.<br />

Balanced pressure systems with Heat<br />

Exchange, such as the HEX390, use the heat<br />

of the outgoing air to warm the incoming<br />

air from outside. These are the most energy<br />

efficient systems available, as they recover up<br />

to 80% of the energy in the air, rather than<br />

losing it to outside. Heat exchangers work just<br />

as well cooling incoming air when the house is<br />

cooled in summer.<br />

The NZ building code has recommended<br />

air exchange rates for houses. To ascertain<br />

the required airflow for your home, please<br />

contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH<br />

(0800 766 684), who will also be able to<br />

recommend a solution if your ventilation<br />

doesn’t yet meet the New Zealand standard.<br />
