Till the end of October, a heat pump installer is trying a new kind of offering. Instead of giving a generic special which customers can either accept or decline, customers can now choose between two specials.
Customers looking for heat pumps in Hamilton can choose between paying nothing for 9 months or paying no interest for 12 months.
This special is only available for those in Auckland, Waikato, and Tauranga. Those in Auckland may want to pay special attention to this offering.
With the Auckland council planning to ban open fireplaces and wood burners, it may be time to consider getting a more health conscious and easily maintained heat pump.
According to the NZ Herald, A new wood burner and flue can cost about $3500, heat pumps cost about $2000 for a small room, a 2000 watt heater costs less than $100 and four cubic meters of firewood costs around $400. So heat pumps appear to be one of the most economic and effective ways to heat your home!
With New Zealand recieving so much of our annual earnings from farming, it is no wonder that kiwi’s are constantly innovating and improving farming systems! It’s even less of a surprise when new innovations com from the Waikato, hub of many dairy farms and Gallagher.
PETA Enterprises is a great example of this. Based in the Waikato, they manufacture agricultural dispensers. But these dispensers aren’t any boring old invention. They control animal’s metabolic diseases by administering prophylatic materials. This is incredibly difficult considering too much or too little could be catastrophic. And with changes in temperature, water consumption and animal size this complicates the process even further.
Dispensers offered by PETA include bloat dispensers, multi-purpose solid dispensers and zinc dispensers. Clever local and international merchants have picked up on the value provided by PETA’s dispensers. They are sold by local farming merchants, dairy cattle and large animal vets, by RD1 and through the Australian agent Shoof Agstar.
In September 2014 PressureBall achieved their biggest month of sales ever. And these sales weren’t just above their previous month – they were almost double.
A wide international market has picked up on PressureBall’s potential. Sales were around the world to countries including USA, England, Ireland, Sweden and Japan. This is just another example of a New Zealand business scoring big in the international market.
PressureBall is an alternative to pressureless tennis balls. It’s an innovation that makes sure new tennis balls never lose their bounce. It is also used to restore old tennis balls pressure.
It’s encouraging to see local businesses expand their markets. Even better to see a lot of overseas interest! Local businesses should be encouraged and see that living in somewhere geographically isolated is not such a disadvantage anymore. Thanks to the Internet.
