HomeFit — Healthy Homes Assessment

Go Eco has a team of qualified HomeFit assessors that can provide an independent appraisal of your home. HomeFit is a NZ Green Building Council initiative providing simple practical tools to ensure homes are warm and healthy.

Go Eco is proud to be part of this programme and promote it as a tool for both homeowners and landlords because everyone deserves to have decent housing, whether they rent or own. The appraisal looks at damp, mould, insulation, heating, ventilation and other key areas.

Homes that pass will be awarded a HomeFit stamp, showing that it is warm, dry, safe and efficient. All appraisals come with a comprehensive report and, if needed, any recommendations to improve the performance of your home.

Please check out the HomeFit online check.
