How much does it cost to insulate a house in New Zealand?

back to estimates list asked 1,200 homebuyers which features were most important when searching for a house. Apart from orientation to the sun, the results found that good insulation and warmth were the top priority for house hunters. Almost 90 per cent of respondents who were selling or had recently sold their homes said that environmental factors such as efficient energy, water and heating could contribute to a property fetching a higher price.

So the first steps when doing up your home should be to make it warmer, drier, more energy-efficient and kinder to the environment. Insulation has been rated as the second most important feature of a home by potential homebuyers. For an average three-bedroom house you could install insulation from $2,500 to $4,500 (ceiling and floor depending on grade).
