Why should YOU insulate?
Without insulation your home will lose heat through the roof, the walls and the floor which will in turn make your home cold, damp and ultimately impact on your family's health. This is why the current New Zealand building code demands that approved insulation be fitted to new houses as they are being built.
For houses built before 2000, insulation specified may have been inadequate, is no longer in good condition or in the case of many older houses, never fitted at all. In these cases insulation can be easily retrofitted into the ceiling and underfloor cavities if they are accessible, with virtually no impact on the structure of the house.
