Warm Up Ōtaki: heat, health


9am-12pm at Energise Ōtaki, 7 Main St.

Join builder and project leader Matt Brenin for free advice on how to heat your home well! No need to book, just come – nau mai haere mai. Phone calls also welcome: 021 142 39 93

We’re powered by a vision of Ōtaki having enough good energy for everyone. Including being warm enough at home to stay well, while using as little electricity (so, money!) as possible.

Warm Up Ōtaki helps homeowners and renters improve home heating and insulation, while getting rid of drafts and mould.


Our assessor Matt Brenin comes over at a time that suits you, to find your home’s heating challenges. Matt shares practical tips, identifies what other help is available, and in some cases, even makes minor repairs. For free. 


Renting, or living in your own home? If you or someone in your home has (or is eligible for) a Community Services Card, Warm Up Ōtaki’s Matt Brenin can check out your home for free. 

(If you don’t, Matt’s home assessment is $200.)

Some homeowners who don’t have a Community Services Card can still get 80% off insulation and/ or a heat pump. It depends where your house is. Matt can help you check this – and you can look it up here.  

Want a home assessment?

If you’ve questions, or are keen to have your home checked out:
