Hines are Making Healthy Homes Bill Compliance Easy with our new Healthy Homes Report!
Updated: Sep 18, 2019
Hines Heat Pumps are making it easy for landlords to ensure their rental properties comply with the new Healthy Homes Standards with our new Healthy Homes Report.
We will visit the property and carry out a 24 point comprehensive property inspection checking heating, ventilation and draughts and provide a full report detailing any work that we recommend in order to reach compliance standards.
In order to comply the following standards must be met:
The main living room must have one or more fixed qualifying heaters, which provide at least
the required heating capacity to heat the main living room to at least 18°C and be capable of maintaining this temperature during the coldest days of winter. 'Living room' means the whole space a living-room heater must be able to heat. Includes any connected spaces that cannot be closed off.
Rental homes must have openable windows in the living room, dining room, kitchen and
Bedrooms. Kitchen and bathrooms must have extractor fans. Minimum extraction size in the
Bathroom is 150mm.
Landlords must make sure the property doesn't have unreasonable gaps or holes in the walls, ceilings, windows, skylights, floors and doors which cause noticeable draughts.
Tenancy Services provide more detail on the Healthy Homes requirements here.
Upon completion of the recommendations in this document the property will be compliant with the Heating and Ventilation regulations of the Healthy Homes Guarantee Act (2017). Hines Group will provide any required quotes for works to bring the property up to compliance standard.
The total cost of this report is $110+GST. A sample copy of the report can be viewed here. If you wish to proceed with these quotes the cost of this report will be deducted from the invoice for work carried out. All recommend / quoted work must be completed in order for the discount.
We are qualified electricians and property management specialists, we offer all property managers discounted labour on all work carried out. Check out our Heating and ventilation Healthy Homes offer here.
