Insulation keeps heat inside your home in winter, and keeps it out in summer. This makes it easier to warm your home. By having a properly insulated home, you can save on heating costs and make your home healthier.
You may be eligible for insulation installed for free through the Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes programme. This includes people renting properties, although there may be a small charge for landlords of eligible tenants.
Some local or regional councils also offer insulation deals – check with them to see what's available.
