  • improve the health, comfort and performance of your home

  • reduce mould and condensation
  • improve energy and resource efficiency
  • save on energy bills

We provide personalised, impartial advice on home performance and energy efficiency. We will work with you to find the right options for your home and budget.

This advice is free to all Auckland residents and ratepayers, whether you are a homeowner, landlord or tenant.

We don't offer:
