Air Conditioning Auckland – How to Keep Your HVAC System Running at Peak Efficiency

Air conditioning Auckland is one of the most important aspects to a comfortable home or workplace. It reduces heat, humidity and airborne pollutants in the space. It also helps to reduce the carbon footprint of a building.

HRV has a range of air conditioners and heat pumps that have been designed for New Zealand conditions, and feature efficient, environmentally friendly hydrocarbon refrigerant. They are also rated with high energy efficiency ratings.


Air conditioners are a fantastic way to stay cool all year round. They provide great cooling for homes and businesses in Auckland during the hot summers, keeping your home or office refreshingly comfortable and productive.

Heat pumps are a great alternative to wood burners for heating your Auckland home during the winter. They are very energy efficient and emit fewer greenhouse gases than traditional fuel heaters.

Heat pumps are easy to install and come in a variety of sizes to suit your space. They can also be integrated with a multi-split solution, where you have an outdoor unit powering multiple indoor units across your home or business. The system can be controlled via a remote or your smartphone app, depending on the type of model you choose. The upfront cost of a heat pump is higher than an air conditioner, but you should regain that in electricity savings over time. The best thing to do is speak with a registered professional for an accurate quote and solution.


Generally speaking, air con units require regular maintenance to keep them operating efficiently and draw as little power as possible. Our team of air conditioning experts can draw up a maintenance schedule that suits you.

HRV’s Pioneer heat pumps and air conditioning systems are designed for New Zealand conditions. They use efficient hydrocarbon refrigerant that reduces energy use and global warming potential compared to traditional fluorocarbon refrigerants. Our ducted systems are rated to New Zealand energy efficiency standards, typically with a five-star rating.

If you’re experiencing problems with your system, check the indoor unit for flashing operation and timer lights, and isolate power to the unit for five minutes. If the problem persists, count the number of times each light flashes and record it.


Air conditioning is a lifesaver in Auckland traffic on hot days and clears fogged up windows much more effectively than a windscreen wiper – it’s well worth getting an annual service to keep you going. If your HVAC has a leak or a component is worn out it can be more cost effective to fix the problem rather than replace the whole system.

Buildings relying on R22-based air conditioning are running out of time to switch to new, environmentally friendly refrigerant systems. We can upgrade these units to electric heat pumps that warm and cool simultaneously, saving you energy costs in the long term.


Depending on the age of your air conditioning system, there will come a time when it needs to be replaced. Excessive noise, costly repairs or unusually high energy costs are all signs that your heat pump is on the way out.

A new energy efficient air conditioning solution that will keep you cool and comfortable all year round. Whether it’s hot and humid in summer or cold and crisp in winter, the right heat pump solution will make your home a pleasure to live in.

Designed and built for New Zealand conditions, the Pioneer multi-split heat pump solution uses an advanced hydrocarbon refrigerant that reduces energy use and has lower global warming potential (GWP) and ozone depletion potential than traditional fluorocarbon refrigerants. Unlike a ducted system, which has an outdoor unit serving multiple indoor units, multi-split heat pumps have an indoor heat pump for each room, connected to one external outdoor heat pump. This makes it easier and more cost-effective to heat or cool your whole house or business.
