Traditional forms of heating are being replaced by newer, more energy-efficient approaches.
A warm home is vital for your comfort and health. Yet many New Zealand homes aren't warm enough and fall below the World Health Organisation's recommended minimum indoor temperature of 18°C in living areas and 16°C in bedrooms.
Heating is expensive (typically accounting for about 30% of a household's annual energy consumption). As energy prices rise it is likely to cost even more.
Most people use electricity, gas or wood to heat their homes. Newer heating systems are more energy efficient and can reduce your power bills, while simple actions can make your existing heating options more efficient.
