WHY INSULATE?

Insulating your home is the single most effective thing you can do to keep your home warm and to save energy and money. A well insulated home provides year round comfort; it is cooler in summer and warmer in winter. And a warmer home is a drier, healthier home.

  • Installing ceiling insulation can save up to $400 a year in the colder regions of New Zealand. Add underfloor insulation and save even more.

Recent studies in New Zealand have found a definite link between insulation and health. The Wellington School of Medicine and Health Sciences study showed:

  • A significant drop in energy use when the houses were insulated.
  • Once the houses were insulated, they were drier and warmer.
  • People in insulated houses reported their houses were "significantly warmer".
  • There was a significant improvement in the self-reported health of those living in the insulated houses compared to those whose houses were not insulated.
  • Adults and children in insulated houses reported visiting their GP less.
  • Adults and children in insulated houses reported that they were admitted to hospital less often for respiratory conditions.
  • Adults and children in insulated homes were significantly less likely to report sick days.
  • People living in insulated houses reported less visible mould inside their homes.

World Health Organisation research has shown that if your home is consistently below 18°C, you are much more likely to suffer from colds, bronchitis and asthma. One in six New Zealand adults and one in four children experience asthma symptoms. These are among the highest rates in the World, and it's no wonder when one in three of our homes are poorly insulated.

Insulating your home is an investment. A fully insulated home is generally worth more and is definitely more desirable than an uninsulated home.

In the last decade electricity costs have increased significantly. You can reduce the effect of future rises by choosing better insulation in your home today.

A fully insulated house needs about half the heating of an uninsulated house. In fact, paying a bit more for insulation now will save you money well into the future, as increased savings each year will eventually pay for the insulation that will continue saving you money, year after year after year.
