Funding is limited so be quick. Flexible, interest free payment plans may be available through CEA to help pay for remaining costs. Warmer Kiwi Homes applies to funding for underfloor and ceiling insulation and ground moisture barriers.
Having adequate home insulation is one of the most important, effective ways to keep your house healthy. Home insulation will help keep you warm in the winter, reducing the cost of heating your home, and cooler in summer.
Studies have shown the benefits to health of having a well insulated home.
We provide home insulation product and installation for ceiling, underfloor, and walls. We provide services across the South Island from Ashburton to Kaikoura, and right across to the West Coast.
What is insulation and how does it work:
Insulation is a product that is installed in the roof and underfloor cavities. It works by trapping layers of still air, reducing the heat conductivity, and allowing less warm air to escape your home. If your house is poorly insulated, heating may be less effective and costly to run.
Insulation performance is measured in R values. Over time, insulation compacts, and the effectiveness of it is reduced. If your home was built before 2008, it is likely to need a top up of insulation.
Types of insulation we use:
We use quality New Zealand made insulation products, that we tailor specifically to your home. Products include wool, polyester and fibre glass. All our insulation products have manufacturers guarantees for up to 50 years.
