What Landlords and Businesses Need to Know about Insulation

What Landlords and Businesses Need to Know about Insulation

Simply put, NZ homes are COLD. Built with our Kiwi summers in mind, the norm for houses in Tauranga, Rotorua and the wider Bay of Plenty seems to be a lack of insulation leading to a whole lot of cold, damp houses.

The government has decided that things need to change. In July 2019, changes to the Residential Tenancies Act require all rental properties to be insulated providing tenants with a warmer, drier home or workspace.
