Heat Pump Company to Help Homeowners Left In The Lurch


Local Heat Pump Company to Help Homeowners Left In The Lurch By Liquidations

Following the liquidation of energy efficiency and insulation business Right House, Christchurch based company Heat Pumps Now has decided to help those customers left stranded by honouring Right House’s original quotes.

Any existing Right House clients who have not paid a deposit and not had work started on their house are invited to contact Heat Pumps Now, who will meet your heating needs for the same price quoted by Right House.

“Building a home is stressful enough without something like this happening,” said founder and CEO of Heat Pumps NOW, Blair Ashdowne.

133 Right House staff were made redundant, 23 of them based in Christchurch. This comes after the liquidations of two other companies involved in the rebuild, Williams & Co builders and Kitchen Appliances Ltd. All of these closures will affect the completion of hundreds of homes across Canterbury.

“We love helping with new homes in Christchurch, because for most it reflects a deep sense of healing. It’s a chance to move forward into a brighter future. To see people’s smiles when they walk into their completed home for the first time is a wonderful feeling. Just brilliant,” said Blair Ashdowne.

Heat Pumps Now is a Christchurch based, community focussed company that specializes in the sale and installation of heating solutions.
