      You’ve got the questions…

We’ve got the answers

Because of our long history in the refrigeration industry, and the care we go to when we install a heat pump we are continually learning and growing in this area of expertise.


Basically what I want to say, is that even though we have the most knowledge, we will always have the most knowledge because we are continually prepared to learn.

We learn by open communication with our customers, free dialog and follow up after installs.  Which is why we value the servicing part of the business.  It gives us the feedback on our install 1 year later, so we know we are getting things right for the customer.  We were one of the first companies to start servicing and with our long 45 year history of installing heat pumps and servicing we have learnt a lot.

You can’t be perfect every time and after 45 years of Varcoe being in business, we have learnt the importance of follow up, and great communication on install. 


So in summary,…. ask us your questions?  We need them to help be better.

A comfortable sleeping environment is essential for a healthy sleep, and your overall health and wellbeing throughout the day. The ideal sleeping temperature is 18.3C which does seem quite cold to some. Which is why we struggle so much to sleep on a hot summers night.

No Draughts

Draughts aren’t good for anyone. They are like wind in the home, leaking the heat and creating a irritable environment. A comfortable home has no draughts, and that is what Varcoe specialises in. Comfortable homes.

Healthy Homes

The healthy homes standards became law the 1st July 2019 in New Zealand. For some it came in very quickly and it was hard to plan and organise for. So that is where I thought Varcoe could help you.
