Insulating your home is one of the smartest moves you can make to save money, be greener and enjoy a more comfortable, healthy and energy efficient home.
Having good insulation means your home stays warmer for longer, so you are more comfortable. It also means less damp, so it's much quicker and cheaper to heat and the atmosphere will feel more pleasant, as well as being more healthy for you.
Research shows living in insulated homes is better for our health, so there's less days off school, work, and fewer costly visits to the doctor and hospital.
Cold and damp inside can lead to moulds and mildew, which can lead to health issues like asthma and allergies.
New Zealand has one of the highest rates of asthma and respiratory illness in the OECD countries, which has been linked to our cold, damp housing.
Save Money - Efficiency
Approximately one third of household energy bills are spent on heating and cooling. By properly insulating your ceiling and underfloor you can reduce heat loss by over 50%! That's about half your heating bill – now that's a big saving!
Value - Investment
Insulation pays for itself quickly over time through energy savings. It will also ADD to the value of your property. When it comes to selling, it will likely return your investment (or more!) again – on top of the energy savings. Not many investments can boast like that!
It's simple really – and it may never be cheaper to do than now.
