From insulation and heat pumps to ventilation, draught stopping and moisture barriers, we cover everything you need to keep your rental properties compliant with the requirements of the Healthy Homes Standards.

As a preferred provider for the Energy Efficient Conservation Authority, Auckland Council and the various District Health Boards that we work with, we are very experienced in not only reporting on the required standards but also implementing solutions to remedy them. 

Having already installed thousands of energy efficient measures into rental properties across New Zealand, we fully appreciate what it takes to bring an underperforming property up to the required standard.

Need to get your rental compliant? 

We provide Healthy Homes Assessments and cost-effective solutions for all five areas of the Healthy Homes Standards. This saves time for property managers and landlords and minimises disruption to your tenants, reducing multiple contractors visiting them.

Our experienced and friendly team of assessors and installers are all employed in-house and can help you get ready for the upcoming deadlines quickly and efficiently.
