At HOBANZ we are interested in improving the living environment of all New Zealanders and are therefore committed to improving the quality of all homes including rental properties. Focusing on the level of insulation is a good starting point.
Insulation of homes is a major issue in New Zealand. According to the World Health Organization, a minimum indoor temperature of 18°C, and ideally 21°C if babies or elderly people live in the house is recommended. The average daily indoor temperature in the winter for most New Zealand houses is just 16°C.
