Heat Pumps, Air Conditioning & Home Ventilation

We have a separate HVAC division specialising in quality heat pump, air conditioning and home ventilation services.

Heat Pumps are a great solution for your home if you want the unit to provide both heating and cooling options. An added benefit of heat pumps is that they have a dehumidification function on all models we supply. However, if you prefer a constant room temperature, an air conditioning solution might be the better solution for you.

We supply, install and maintain a wide range of heat pumps from New Zealand’s most trusted brands that include Daikin, Fujitsu and Mitsubishi Electric. We can integrate your new heat pump system into your existing home automation network. If you don’t have an existing system, we’re able to create a customised home automation system that meets your family’s needs. Additionally, we supply, install and maintain ducted systems, floor consoles, cassette unit air conditioning systems, and smart vent home ventilation systems for a dry, healthy home.

Contact us to talk about your individual requirements. We’re more than happy to help you find the best solution to keep your home dry and comfortable, and your family healthy throughout the year.

Switchboard Upgrades

If your home still has a switchboard that was installed before the year 2000, it is time to upgrade to ensure it meets current electrical safety standards. Doing this is the most important thing you can do to protect your family and pets from a potential fire resulting from an overloaded cable that your old switchboard can’t keep up with due to its aged components and outdated technology.

If you’re planning a home renovation, your switchboard should be a main consideration to ensure it can service the increased electricity load your home is likely to need. We can help with mapping out your home’s electrical system and install the recommended electrical solution while your renovation is underway.

Switchboard upgrades cost between $1,500 to $2,000 depending on the complexity of your electrical needs. Contact us for a free fixed price quote and talk to us about the financing options we have available.


Kitchen Rewiring

Kitchen renovations are exciting. We know, we’ve done quite a few of them for our customers over the past decade. While it may not sound fun to think about an electrical plan for your new kitchen, investing careful thought into it ensures you’ll enjoy all aspects of your new kitchen once it’s complete.

If you change the kitchen layout and upgrade all appliances and fittings, having an experienced team of residential electricians design your electrical plan is absolutely critical.

No matter how complex your kitchen renovation is, we’ll make sure to help you think about some of the following considerations:

  • The placement of your microwave, kettle, toaster and coffee machine
  • Access to the kitchen appliances you use while cooking
  • Number and location of double power points
  • Number and location of mobile phone chargers
  • Location of your landline phone
  • Selection of lighting (e.g. down lights, spot lights or both)
  • Placement of your air conditioning/security control panel

…and more.

We proudly partner with Schneider Electric and Philips to supply high quality lighting and fittings that not only look amazing but are known for their energy-efficiency and overall great performance.

Home Automation

Whether you want to dip your feet into the world of home automation by automating your TV and sound system or would like a smart home solution that covers all areas, we can help.

We’ll discuss with you which of your daily tasks you’d like to automate and design a system that matches your requirements and budget. Here are some of the things a home automation system can help you do:

  • Answer the door, no matter how far away from home you are
  • Lock or open the front door without a key
  • Check to see if you’ve left the garage door open and close it if you have
  • Water your plants while you’re on holiday
  • Control your lights, curtains and blinds
  • Heat or cool your home on your way home from work
  • Check on your dog
  • Get smoke alarm notifications
  • Control your home security and alarm system

All of this can be done from your mobile phone or tablet, essentially turning your home into a hands-free smart home. We partner with a range of high-quality suppliers to design efficient home automation solutions, ensuring your system works for everyone in your family, is scalable for future additions and upgrades, and has a continuity system built in in case of a power cut.

In our inter-connected world today where we rely on the Internet for a range of services, we often battle with weak wifi signals. No matter if you simply want to stream music, skype with far-away loved ones (and show them the progress you made in your garden), or pay your bills online… you have to have a strong wifi signal to do that, and we often have pockets in our home where this is simply not the case.

The solution to this problem is the installation of UniFi long-range wireless access point, and we can easily get this done for you. The best thing is that there is no need for changing routers or wifi settings. The access point is installed right next to your router and you’re good to go.

Workmanship Guarantee

Your family’s safety and well-being is absolutely paramount. We understand this as we have loved ones, children and pets of our own. All electrical installations completed by activ8 come with a $20,000 guarantee on workmanship and the materials used in the installation.
