Better health starts with warmer, drier homes this winter
The days are definitely getting shorter and the nights cooler as we head into winter.
It’s vital homes around Aotearoa New Zealand are kept warm and dry over the cooler months, to help prevent illnesses, including rheumatic fever.
Making simple changes at home can mean smaller energy bills and a more comfortable living environment. To help, we’ve developed informative online videos in English, Te Reo Māori, Samoan and Tongan, with tips for creating warmer, drier and, therefore, healthier homes.
We also have information about some of the subsidies available to make homes healthier – be sure to check out our website.
And remember, from 1 July insulation will be compulsory in all rental homes. Head to the Tenancy Services’ website to find out more.
