Benefits of an efficient home

Performance

Greater comfort – After working with Right House, your home will be more comfortable. Right House aim to design and specify so that your home has a temperature of between 18 and 24 degrees Celsius all year round for a minimum of 355 days. This complies with the recommendation of the World Health Organisation for comfortable and healthy homes.

Better health – The air in your home will be dry and healthy, safer for small children, the elderly and those with allergies. Your home will be free from condensation and insulated from outdoor extremes.

Dollars & sense

Energy efficiency – Right House will ensure that you get the maximum benefit for any money you spend on energy and on making your home more energy efficient. Right House's philosophy is to recommend design and passive system benefits which deliver optimum energy-efficiency and temperature benefits and do not cost anything to run.

A customised solution - Right House can analyse your home (or building plans) in order to help you determine what products and systems will be the most appropriate to meet your specific lifestyle needs and budget. The customised, energy efficient home solutions we recommend will deliver maximum comfort for the least capital and operating costs.

Increased value - A home that has been through the Right House process will be more desirable and have an increased value to potential buyers. A past Right House project in Auckland attracted sales prices more than 15% higher than prices paid for equivalent houses in the same development without the energy efficiency improvements (NZ Herald, March 19 2007).

Comfort

The comfort level of any home can be plotted against the annual energy spend. When compared to a standard new house, a home that has been specified by Right House achieves greater comfort levels for the same annual spend on energy.
