Tips on winter warmth during an interview on Plains FM and during a panel discussion with CERA,The Canterbury District Health Board, Fire Service and Community Energy Action.
Keeping warm in a quake damaged house or a rental property if your house is unliveable, can be a challenge. Community Energy Action has assembled some tips on how to keep warm without breaking the bank.
Also tips about insulation and heating and your EQC claim and improving the energy efficiency of your home during earthquake repairs.
A warm, dry home is a healthy home and good insulation and efficient heating are key to achieve that. Our aim is for every Cantabrian to have sufficient insulation and heating.
Community Energy Action has insulated more than 17,000 homes since 1994 so when we install insulation in your home, you can be assured it wil be done right. Community Energy Action can take care of both your insulation and heating needs, providing a quality job and an excellent service at an affordable cost.
There is more to us though.
Community Energy Action is a charitable trust and any surpluses we make go toward our charitable programmes. They provide extra help for vulnerable people so they can also stay warm and healthy. We also provide free assistance for all householders with questions about home energy issues through our award-winning Energy Advice Service.
We are part of the Community Energy Network, a network of similar community organisations throughout New Zealand.
