Assess your home

Home Fit assessment tool

Developed by the New Zealand Green Building Council, the HomeFit website gives you a guide on ways to improve your home.

The HomeFit tool  is designed for homeowners, renters and landlords.

Once you have completed the online check, a HomeFit assessor can visit to verify if the property meets the ventilation, insulation, heating, and energy efficiency standards.

You will get a report and if your property meets an acceptable standard, it will receive HomeFit certification.
