Healthy Homes Heating Standard

Healthy Homes Heating Standard

Ensuring warmth and comfort, the Healthy Homes Standards mandate that rental properties must have heating systems capable of maintaining a minimum indoor temperature of 18°C in living areas on the coldest days. This regulation aims to improve tenant health and well-being, reduce mold and dampness, and enhance energy efficiency. 

In the Heating Standard, key points include:

  • Heating Capacity: Landlords must install heaters capable of achieving and maintaining 18°C in living rooms. If existing heaters fall short, additional heating options can be used to meet the standard (Ministry of Housing) (Ministry of Housing).
  • Grace Period: New or renewed tenancies must comply within 90 to 120 days, while all private rentals must comply by 1 July 2025 (Tenancy Services).
  • Compliance: Non-compliance can result in penalties up to $7,200 under the Residential Tenancies Act 1986 (Ministry of Housing).

I was really impressed with Paul and his team . He arrived on time , was polite and friendly and very professional . He really blew me away with his workmanship . My heat pump looks brand new ,an feels brand new,even after 7 years old. I would... highly recommend him to anyone needing a Heat-pump service . But he does so much more my HRV filter needs replacing soon and its so much cheaper than getting HRV people in to do it,so why wouldn`t anyone get Paul and his team over,right before summer comes. Paul will definitely be getting all my electrical business from this day forward. Thanks again Paul, regards Grantread more
