2 4 [Edition datE] ADVICE for maintaining your home As most New Zealanders’ homes are their biggest investments it’s important to protect them. Good maintenance will: • Keep your home safe and secure • Keep you and your family healthy • Save you money by allowing you to fix problems before they get bigger • Protect your financial investment What’s the best way to approach maintenance? Carry out regular preventative maintenance to prevent some problems from occurring. Maintaining your home Plan ahead for major maintenance tasks. Be prepared for emergencies – know where and how the water, gas and power supplies turn off. Moisture Damp homes are unhealthy and harder to heat. Combat persistent damp in your home by: • Insulating (under the floor, in the ceiling and walls). • Ventilating (including extractor fans in bathrooms and kitchens, opening windows, using a dehumidifier or forced ventilation system and keeping vents clear). • Heating (aim to keep the indoor temperature at a minimum of 16C). • Replacing unflued gas heaters with electric or flued gas heaters. DIY or professional? You need to be realistic about your limits. It is better to hire a tradesperson and get the job done properly than to make costly mistakes. By law, some jobs need to be done by a professional, such as gas, plumbing, drainage and some electrical work. Major maintenance matters.
