Renovate the right way

Many older New Zealand homes are cold, damp and hard to heat. It’s disappointing but not unusual to discover the home you’ve moved into isn’t up to scratch when it comes to energy efficiency. Natural gas can change that, with endless hot water and cosy heating solutions that are affordable and provide outstanding performance.

If you’ve decided to renovate, take the opportunity to insulate your home properly and install energy efficient natural gas hot water and heating. You won’t regret it – especially when you experience the flexibility, convenience, and performance of modern gas appliances. It’s the ultimate comfort upgrade for your family and it’s affordable.

Retrofitting appliances is generally very achievable even in much older homes.

And don’t forget, you can take natural gas outside too, with outdoor fires, natural gas BBQs that plug in to bayonet points, spas and swimming pools. 

Renovating is in our DNA - it’s a Kiwi pastime. With a careful amount of planning, you can ensure you’re making considered changes to your home renovations that contribute to your lifestyle and the overall value of your home.

If you fancy yourself as the ultimate entertainer, find out more about the power and performance natural gas can offer you.
