If you’re building a new home, it’s simple to get your insulation sorted. In fact, government regulations make it mandatory, so your ceiling and underfloor insulation will be built into the design.
However, most New Zealanders don’t live in brand new homes. Older homes may have little or no thermal insulation, so you’ll know all about it on those frosty winter nights. Even if they do have insulation, it may not be much use. Insulation that’s been sitting there for decades may have settled over time and not meet modern standards.
If that’s the case, you’ll be looking at retrofitting new underfloor or ceiling insulation to a house that’s already occupied. That may be a job you’re happy to do yourself – but it may also be something you’d rather not get involved with.
Fortunately, there’s an easy alternative: get a home insulation company to do it all for you.
You’ll save time – and you could save a fair bit of money too. Home insulation companies, such as Harrisons Home Energy Solutions, specialise in providing a complete solution – from the initial quote to professional installation.
How will this save you money? Well, Harrisons Home Energy Solutions will help you apply for all the money that’s available under the Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart programme. This can include an Energywise grant up to $1,300 (33% of the total cost).
Harrisons will take care of all the paperwork and make sure you get a great insulation deal, thanks to their Best Price Guarantee. There’s even interest free finance if you’d like to reduce the cost up front.
On installation day, the specialist team will bring everything they need and install your new insulation in accordance with the NZS 4246 Building Code. There’s even a post-installation audit to make sure everything complies with strict EECA guidelines.
If you want an energy efficient home, this really is the easy way to get one.
