The recently announced new rental home standards are being fully supported by Hamilton-based premier heating and solar experts A&A Solar and Electrical
As announced by Housing Minister Phil Twyford at the weekend, a set of new Government rules will ensure that every rental home in New Zealand will have to provide adequate living room heating, meet tougher insulation standards and have an extractor fan in the kitchen and bathroom
The new rules state from the mid-2021, all rental homes will be compulsory by law to have a heater that can heat a main living area to 18C.
The standards set minimum requirements for heating, insulation, ventilation, moisture and drainage, as well as rules to stop draughts, in all residential rental properties across the country.
Kitchens and bathrooms will have to have extraction fans or rangehoods and, where rental homes have an enclosed subfloor space, property owners will need to install a ground moisture barrier to stop moisture rising into the home.
Mr Twyford argued that New Zealand's cold and damp housing is responsible for around 1600 premature deaths every winter. “No one should go cold this winter, that’s why we support these new standards” says Andy Cooper from A&A Solar and Electrical who co-owns the Hamilton company with Andy Mann.
At A&A Solar and Electrical they understand that every home is different and require unique solutions when it comes to heating. “We offer un-biased and professional guidance on what will be the best heating/cooling solutions for your home and lifestyle requirements,” says Andy Cooper.
