I will borrow a HEAT kit

If you’re living in a damp, cold house or paying too much for power, check your home's insulation and energy costs. The Home Energy Audit Toolkit (HEAT kit) is available free of charge from your local library with your Auckland Libraries membership. 

Reserve a HEAT kit here.

Home Energy Audit Toolkits (HEAT kits) can help you find out:

  • which areas of your home use the most energy
  • how you can make your home healthier and warmer
  • how you can save on power bills and reduce your carbon footprint.

What is in the HEAT kit?

  • A hygrometer - to measure air temperatures and moisture levels including tips on how to avoid cold, damp conditions that cause condensation and mould.
  • An infrared thermometer - to find thermal leaks due to poor insulation of ineffective seals including tips on how to fix them.
  • A stopwatch - to measure your shower flow rate including tips on how to make savings through efficient use of hot water.
  • A power meter - to measure the running cost of plug-in appliances including tips on how you can save money on appliances, heating and lighting.
  • Instructions on how to use each tool.
  • A record booklet for recording your measurements and energy saving actions.
  • Info sheets you can take away with more detailed information.

As a bonus, by saving energy in the home you'll also reduce your carbon footprint too. Find out more about your personal impact on the planet and the most impactful actions to reduce it at FutureFit.
