Episode 28 :: The benefits of effective insulation
Nearly 60% of our houses don't have good enough ceiling and underfloor insulation. The lack of insulation in New Zealand homes is a major energy and health issue.
Benefits of insulation
Good quality, well installed insulation can significantly reduce the rate of heat loss in your home. This makes your house warmer and comfortable and easier to heat properly.
If your home was built before 2000 you can get ENERGYWISE™ funding to help insulate your house under the government's Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart programme.
Did you know?
In the average uninsulated home, around 40% of heat is lost through the ceiling.
