Insulation for Rental properties – it makes sense
Insulating rental properties is a relatively low cost investment which helps to keep tenants warmer, protects rental houses from issues with mould and damp, and can add value. Changes have been made to the Residential Tenancies Act requiring rental properties to be warmer, drier and safer for the hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders.
All residential rental homes in New Zealand will be required to have insulation by July 2019.
Landlords are required to provide a statement on the tenancy agreement for any new tenancy commencing 1 July 2016 about the location, type and condition of insulation in the rental home.
Installing conductive foil insulation in residential and rental homes is now banned.
We can assist landlords to cost effectively install insulation in ceilings and under floors. We always offer competitive pricing and excellent personal service. Great range of the best products available.
Existing insulation may not meet the new standards; quality levels do reduce over time and significant heat loss can be caused by lighting, tradesmen or poor quality installation. We can offer sound advice on how to reduce and mitigate damage.
