  •  New Zealand's housing stock is one of the least energy efficient in the OECD and the benefits of improving this are significant. Energy efficient homes cost less to run, are warmer and healthier, and have less environmental impact.
  • BRANZ research has shown that 45% of new home owners are disappointed about the thermal performance of their house.  So even a lot of new homes are too hot or, more likely, too cold.
  •  The incidence of asthma in New Zealand is one of the highest in the world, and an important contributing factor is the poor quality of housing. 

Let Snug Homes assist you in getting a comfortable, healthy and environmental friendly home.
