One of the most cost-effective and easy solutions is to block draughty air gaps with weather strips in your windows and doors.
We can help you identify gaps and draughts around your home as part of our Home Energy Assessment and have a range of affordable products to block gaps and sources of draughts.
Another major source of draughts is also through gaps in floorboards, which can be solved by installing proper underfloor insulation.
In New Zealand, under the new Healthy Homes Standards rental properties must meet a certain standard.
Ensuring draughts are blocked in openable windows and doors and blocking unused open fire-places is a requirement of the Draught Stopping Standard – Healthy Homes Standards 2019.
As a service provider to the Warmer Kiwi Homes programme, we installed more insulation than any other provider in the country in 2019.
Our insulation installers are knowledgeable, experienced and extremely good at what they do.
Also, all our work is installed to the Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority (EECA) standard, which is over and above the current New Zealand standards, as required for new builds and retrofit applications.
GreenSide Energy Solutions will help you choose the right options for dealing with draughts in your home.
