Pink Batts is Platinum Sponsor of Homestar V4

What is Homestar?

Homestar is a comprehensive, independent rating tool that measures the health, warmth and energy efficiency of New Zealand homes and apartments. Houses are rated on a scale from 6 to 10, and are assessed against seven categories including Energy, Health and Comfort. Other categories are: Water, Waste, Management, Materials, Site and Density and Resource Efficiency. There is also an optional innovation category.

There are two stages to a Homestar rating:

  1. Design: This rating assesses the full and final plans from which the home will be built.
  2. Built: This rating occurs after a home is constructed. It certifies that the features in the design rating have been fully implemented.

Why is Pink Batts insulation a platinum sponsor?

Homestar fits really well with the Pink Batts insulation value proposition; it is all about helping designers and builders create warmer, healthier, more energy efficient and comfortable homes for kiwis.

Homestar will help to create better homes for New Zealanders and insulation is part of the solution. It also considers design, heating ventilation and of course quality of the installation of the insulation. Homestar brings all these elements together in one easy to access tool.

Pink Batts insulation can help designers to achieve points in two categories:

  • Energy, Health and Comfort
  • Materials

If the insulation is installed by PinkFit, Pink Batts' professional installers, then points can be achieved one category:

  • Management
