Home Health Self-Assessment Kit

A warm, dry home is not just more comfortable, it is also more energy efficient and much better for your health. Cold, damp and mouldy houses can lead to discomfort and more serious health problems, such as respiratory illness and cardiovascular disease. It is harder and more costly to heat damp and draughty houses.

This self-assessment toolkit will enable you to assess your home for warmth and damp, and understand how it is performing. You will find useful tips and advice to improve the comfort of your home, and the health of occupants.

You can borrow the Home Health Self-Assessment Kit for free from any of the Wairarapa Libraries – Featherston, Martinborough, Greytown, Carterton and Masterton. Find out more at https://www.wls.org.nz/
