Nelson H&C have provided a very simple and economical solution to our commercial needs: a welcoming, clean and stable environment for our patients and products. The storage of medicines are audited by the Ministry of Health, and pharmacies are acutely aware of the need to have constancy of temperatures. We decided to go with a stand alone system as the alternative of buying into an expensive facility-wide system seemed over-priced, and unnecessary. I am glad to say this was a wise and economical choice, and I have appreciated the advice of Glenn and his team.
Gary Chalmers, Collingwood St Pharmacy
We had Garry Shane and the team install a full ducted heat pump system in 5 rooms and a lounge area in our modern home here in Golden Bay. They did an excellent job, the pre install advice was just what we needed, and the system itself is almost invisable apart from some very discrete vents in the rooms ceilings. The beauty of a ducted sysytem is that instead of having a large white hardware on the wall in one room, the unit is hidden in the roof space, and heats (or cools) every room in the house through the ceiling vents, all controlled from a small wall controller not much bigger than a light switch plate. The Nelson Heat Pump team were quick and very tidy, and had the whole large install done in just under 3 days. I would highly recommend the Nelson Heat Pump team, and we're very pleased with the unit and the professional service we received. Ken & Janet George Pohara, Golden Bay November 2016
