Where can I get advice about insulation?
(updated on Friday, March 13th 2009)
Our Experts Answer:
The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) provides information about energy efficiency. It is currently offering landlords a subsidy of at least 60% on the cost of retrofitting a full house with insulation and other energy-efficiency measures for any of their rental properties occupied by low-income tenants, where certain criteria are met. For more information about the subsidy, visit www.eeca.govt.nz
EECA’s Energywise website provides extensive information about energy efficiency - see www.energywise.govt.nz.
