We’re so proud to have been part of the ongoing Healthy Homes Tai Tokerau insulation programme making Northland homes warmer, healthier and drier.
Since 2007 more than 12,000 homes in Kaipara, Whangarei and Far North Districts have been retro-fitted with insulation – something that has a massively positive impact on the health of tens of thousands of Northlanders.
So far this year more than 500 homes have been insulated and by the end of June that figure will be closer to 650 … and we don’t plan to stop until the job is done as there are still at least 6000 cold and damp homes in need of insulation.
The health, environmental and employment outcomes that have been generated through this programme are immense as home insulation is a proven way of lowering health risk. The cost of insulating a home is the same as a night’s stay at Starship Hospital
