STEP 1: ASSESSMENT

Once we assess your property, we will provide you with a comprehensive report that shows which parts of the standard the property complies with, and which areas require further work to meet the standard.

STEP 2: REPORTING & QUOTE

The report is broken into five sections. Each section covers all requirements of the Act and provides photographic evidence of any areas that require further work to meet the standard.

Along with the report we will provide you with a detailed quote.

STEP 3: INSTALLATION

G-Force Healthy Homes Solutions are expert installers so we can also supply and install whatever you need to ensure the property meets the new requirements saving you the hassle of organising multiple contractors.

Below is a brief summary of the requirements of each section of the standard:

Insulation Icon.png

INSULATION

The new HHS insulation standard has most of the same requirements as the 2016 standard. The main difference with the new HHS is that the minimum thickness of existing ceiling insulation has increased from 70mm to 120mm. Anything less than 120mm of ceiling insulation is deemed to not be in reasonable condition and new insulation will need to be installed.

If you had new insulation installed after July 2016, in order to comply with the 2016 insulation and smoke alarm standard, your property should already meet the new requirements. GForce Healthy Home Solutions supplies and installs Knauf Earthwool-Glasswool insulation. Knauf is one of the world’s largest and most respected insulation companies, they produce high performing, safe ceiling and underfloor insulation products.

MOISTURE INGRESS & DRAINAGE

This part of the standard requires that the premises have an efficient drainage system and that any enclosed sub-floor has a ground moisture barrier installed.

Our assessors will be looking to see that gutters and downpipes are intact, free from obstructions and are flowing to an outfall.

 

For any properties that don’t meet the standard, our team is able to clean and repair gutters and downpipes as well as install ground moisture barriers. Our assessment does not cover any below ground drainage elements.

HEATING

The heating standard requires that the main living area of the property can be heated to an internal temperature of 18c. This needs to be achieved by using a fixed heating source. If the required heating capacity of the living areas is greater than 2.4kw, then the heater needs to be a heat pump, flued gas heater or an efficient wood or pellet burner.

We will assess the property and calculate the required heating capacity of the main living area and establish whether any existing heaters meet the requirements.

If the property isn’t compliant then our experienced assessor will be able to specify and provide a quotation for a qualifying heater to be installed by our team of tradespeople.

VENTILATION

The ventilation standard requires that the premises have a working extraction fan in each kitchen and bathroom that vents to the outdoors, and that each habitable space has an openable window or door to the outside of the property.

Our assessors will inspect each habitable space, bathroom and kitchen to ensure compliance with the standard.

 

Our experienced tradespeople are on hand to complete any extraction installs or maintenance work on windows and doors to ensure the standard is met. We have sourced a range of extraction options for the kitchen and bathroom that will suit all property types and budgets.

DRAUGHT STOPPING

In order to comply with this section of the standard, the premises need to be free of any holes or gaps in the external building elements that let in unreasonable draughts.

Our assessors will inspect all common sources of holes or gaps in your property such as windows and doors to establish compliance with this section of the standard.

For any non-compliant areas of the property, we can provide a quotation to draught proof the property using cost effective draught proofing methods.

We manage the entire process to minimise disruption to you and tenant, and we organise all communication with tenants to arrange installation times.

COMPLIANCE

We make compliance easy. We will ensure that all requirements for the RTA (Healthy Homes Standards) are met for your property.

 

As part of our total service we will supply you with the following documentation that can be added to the property file and tenancy agreement:

Certificate of Compliance for each section of the property that complies with the standards. These certificates can be used as proof to MBIE that the property complies with the regulations.
