Homestar summer promotion

As mentioned in previous Home Energy Centre newsletters, Homestar is the new industry standard for energy and environment rating of homes developed by the Green Building Council, government and industry. Homestar can be utilised for assessing existing homes and for helping new builds at the design stage to target specific ratings. It’s being delivered locally by Aaryn Barlow who’s a trained industry professional from the Nelson Environment Centre.

Summer is the time when most homes are sold in New Zealand, Nelson is no different. For homes that perform well in terms of efficiency and comfort, Homestar offers a way to verify this fact with an accredited rating which can supplement LIM reports. The Australian version of Homestar showed a 3% increase in sale value per extra star achieved and once Homestar gets established here it likely achieve similar results.

As part of a summer promotion we are offering a special on Homestar assessments. A full assessment, certified rating and recommendation report is now only $250.

The certified rating is based on the overall assessment of thermal properties, heating and hot water systems, water conservation and more. The recommendation report will outline how you can make improvements to the home, increasing comfort and value and lowering running costs.

Homestar in Nelson is proudly sponsored by the Home Energy Centre, Richmond Glass and the EDA.
