29 January 2019 Scoop: Insulation boost means more warm dry homes

Good to see after all the research that has been done about poor quality of housing impacts on health that the government is up to speed. Now we need to: 1. at least build the new stock so it is healthy as well and, 2. change the building code so new homes are designed and proven to be warm healthy and dry before they are built via simulation (an energy model).

“Too many New Zealand homes are cold and damp, leading to preventable diseases such as rheumatic fever and asthma. We can do so much better as a country than that. That’s why this Government is insulating homes, to keep people safe and healthy. It will mean less Kiwis ending up in hospital and more people able to afford to heat their homes.”
