Build a Warmer, Drier, Efficient & Healthy Home

THE BENEFITS TO YOU, YOUR FAMILY & THE ENVIRONMENT

CHEAPER TO RUN

Homestar reduces the cost of running a home. Homes rated 6 Homestar can enjoy savings on energy and water bills of $573-$877 per year*

HEALTHIER FOR FAMILY

Kiwi homes are often cold and damp which impacts our well-being, with 1 in 6 Kiwis affected by respiratory issues. Homestar homes are warm, dry and healthy for the whole family**

CONTROLLED TEMPERATURE

Many Kiwi homes fall short of the WHO’s healthy indoor temperature of 18˚C. Homestar’s insulation and ventilation standards help achieve temperature and moisture control*

FUTURE ASSET VALUE

A Homestar rating provides assurance to future buyers about your home’s warmth, efficiency and sustainability – attracting a resale premium*

BENEFIT THE ENVIRONMENT

Green building utilising eco-friendly materials reduces the impact on the environment, with ongoing environmental sustainability through improved energy and water consumption

INNOVATION

Incorporate a range of ‘innovative’ initiatives with significant sustainability recognised by Homestar, such as Green Walls and Real-time monitoring of energy use*

SAVE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AND YEARS OFF THE LIFE OF YOUR MORTGAGE.

A 6 Homestar rated home is not only healthier for your family and the environment, it is also healthy for your pocket!

Testimonials

When I heard about the Healthy Homestar package it was a no-brainer. We decided to jump into building our Headstart Home. Truly, what a great offer. I’m really aware of my family’s health and want that to come first. Having this opportunity to build a Homestar Home, when I thought it was out of my price range is an amazing opportunity. Thank you Headstart Homes.
