Upper Hutt Leader : August 17th 2011
17 UPPER HUTT LEADER, AUGUST 17, 2011 NEWS 3925200AA Are you struggling to keep warm this winter? COMPANY PROFILE After being in the building industry for over 10 years, brothers Sam and Levi Davey recognised that insulation installers were not always giving their customers fair deals. They started Hot Stuff Insulators LTD in August 2009 and were very successful from the beginning, Levi says. To help their clients, they expanded their services to include insulation, heat pumps, ventilation, wood burners, eco light bulbs and rain water collection. They can even help with compost, vegetable gardens and draft stopping. "Our focus is on products that are energy ef ficient, and can help save the client money in the long term. "Our business grew rapidly, primarily from referral business which is people telling friends and family about us, which is the biggest compliment to the work we do.' ' During this time, people star ted to become aware of the need to make their homes more energy efficient. The problem for home owners was how to identif y where the inefficiencies are in the home and how to best tackle the problem. The government drive to make New Zealand homes more energy ef ficient has created a whole new industry. Levi says this has lead to some "cowboys" who are involved in the business simply for a fast buck. "We have seen so many people install expensive solutions into their home, but not truly knowing where the inef ficiencies were, which can deliver very poor results." It is for this reason, that the brothers established their new division called KIWeco. This division aims to provide a totally comprehensive service to the home owner. "We provide a `Home Coach' service, which provides an affordable energy efficiency assessment on the home," Levi says. Home Coach is administered by Homestar and is the product of a joint venture bet ween Branz Appraisals, Beacon Pathway and the New Zealand Green Building Council. These organisations, industry stakeholders and the government have combined to develop a single residential rating tool for New Zealand's new and existing homes. KIWeco is fully qualified to provide this service. "The best thing about it, is that it is not biased. Some companies will provide advice, but that advice is biased towards the product they sell." "Our mission is to help keep New Zealand clean and green by offering Kiwis the best one-stop home energy service." For more information on what KIWeco can do for you, contact the brothers on 0508 468 788 or send them an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. How to stay warm without spending a fortune!
