After your ceiling and underfloor insulation is installed, make sure you have a great source of efficient heating and air conditioning perfect for the Dunedin climate. We recommend a powerful heat pump with cooling option to provide both heating and cooling options for Winter and Summer seasons. Having a wood burner is good security in case the power goes out and you need a good source of heating for warmth and handy for boiling water and cooking your food.

Insulation helps trap the warm or cool air in your home. 

Ceiling and underfloor insulation, awesome wall insulation, double glazed windows and  a modern ventilation system is the ideal formula.

Pump up the heat during winter and pump in the cool air during summer.  Your heat pump can be more efficient with regular servicing. To assist with efficiency, clean your heat pump regularly and set your heat pump to 19% degrees with the low fan setting during Winter. In a well insulated home, it takes the chill off the room and may use less power than on a higher temperature.

The insulation is folded down evenly each side of the joists. Mammoth underfloor insulation are stapled 15 cm apart on the left and right side of the joist. Mammoth insulation is neat white insulation.

Ground Vapour Barrier

Black Polythene Ground Vapour Barrier

  • Ground Vapour Barrier is Black Polythene installed on the ground in the underfloor area. A ground vapour barrier protects homes against rising damp and mould, making homes drier, warmer and easier to heat. 

  • This ground vapour barrier is 250 micron thick black polythene for long-lasting, maximum protection from cold and damp. Up to 35 litres of water a day can be released into a home from exposed soil under the house.  

  • For landlords in New Zealand, all rental properties must have the ground vapour barrier installed by 1 July, 21. We recommend installing the ground vapour barrier as soon as possible to avoid the rush.

  • Meets the NZ building standard of 250 microns.

  • Ideal to cover damp ground.

  • Helps stop dampness entering your home.

  • Extra layer of protection helping reduce mould and dampness entering your home to improve the health of your family.
