Choosing a climate control specialist in Canterbury

Climate is a key factor in choosing the best climate control solution for your home. Understanding Canterbury’s unique climate and weather patterns will eliminate a lot of frustration and ensure your family remains comfortable year-round.

All aspects of Canterbury’s climate are dominated by the influence of the Southern Alps on the prevailing westerly airflows. There are five different climate zones in the region, each with their own nuances. By New Zealand standards, Canterbury experiences a relatively large annual temperature range, which makes climate control a challenge! Cold winter weather can be interrupted by unseasonably warm days. Summer weather, on the other hand, sees temperatures exceeding 30°C throughout Canterbury, and on rare occasions, temperatures in excess of 40°C have been recorded.
