Simply Heat could, simply speaking, be the most upmarket and largest heating showroom in New Zealand, but the only way to find out for sure is to come down to 95 Byron Street, just near the Waltham Road over-bridge, and see for yourself.
You enter the showroom via a very attractive outdoor fireplace display area and continue through a stylish reception area, complete with an eye catching see through gas fire. This reception area leads to a series of interlinked, upmarket mini –showrooms, each dedicated to a different type of home heating.
Simply Heat has been open for one year and manager Steve Waring says his objective was simple. “I wanted to create a one stop specialty shop for anyone looking for residential heating, whether it is a space heating or water heating, where customers can view the various forms of home heating attractively displayed and operating and see exactly how they look and perform when installed.”
He says the big advantage Simply Heat has over other heating retailers, is it saves people having to traipse all over town checking out the various forms of home heating at different retailers.
“No one should make a decision about home heating until they have visited our showroom. No one else has this selection on one site in Christchurch.”
Furthermore, because Simply Heat sells all forms of heating, he says they can provide unbiased advice as to what heating option will best meet the needs of an individual customer’s requirements. “So if you’re planning to build, bring your plans in and we can give you a quote and advice for all your needs. We will give you the best advice whether it is gas fires, electric heaters, heat pumps, hot water heaters, solid fuel burners or central heating systems.”
Simply Heat stocks a wide range of leading brands of home heating and water heating systems and Steve says, thanks to Simply Heat’s bulk buying power, they can offer all these brands at very competitive prices.
Despite having only been open for 12 months, Steve says the initial response from the public to Simply Heat has been very favourable and the local building industry has been very enthusiastic as well.
