After 18 years experience working in the family heat pump business in West Auckland, Ian Delaney has decided to strike out on his own.
Meeting his partner, Sarah Rasmussen – owner of the Avenue Hair Studio in Stanmore Bay, and a born and breed Coastie – Ian says he couldn’t wait to call the Hibiscus Coast home.
“After three years of commuting to West Auckland daily I was keen to get back on the tools working in the local area,” Ian says.
All Temp Heat Pumps covers the Hibiscus Coast, Rodney and west to Helensville.
While Ian’s experience includes everything from domestic installations to overseeing the installation of large air conditioning systems on some of Auckland’s high-rise and commercial building projects, he says what he loves best is working one-on-one with customers and delivering good old-fashioned customer service.
“There’s nothing better than sitting down and having a chat about exactly what the customer wants,” he says. “Job satisfaction for me is knowing my customers are happy.
“Sometimes you have to be prepared to think out-of-the-box – there are always lots of options and ways to achieve what a homeowner is looking for.”
Ian recommends Mitsubishi and Daikin heat pumps, which he says are good quality systems with the latest technology.
“As a qualified electrician, I can sign off on all jobs and service the products as well. This is also a cost-saving for the homeowner.”
Ian says heat pumps are the ideal way to heat a home because they are energy efficient, quiet and today’s models include wifi so they can be accessed remotely.
When not running his business, Ian is a keen motocross rider and will be coaching his son Benji’s J4 rugby team at Silverdale this season.
