Brightr was formed to help kiwis get the best energy performance possible out of their home and businesses. Starting in Auckland in 2009, we've continued to grow our offer and expand our branches throughout New Zealand.
Brightr backs better energy and healthier homes and as one of the first partners of the government's EECA ENERGYWISE™ Warm Up New Zealand programme in 2009, offering subsidised insulation and/or clean heating to homeowners ever since, we’re at the forefront of sustainable energy use.
In 2018, we continued on as a provider in the EECA Warmer Kiwi Homes programme and continue to work with many regional community funders with a joint vision to help make insulating your home more affordable.
Brightr was previously called Smart Energy Solutions and in June 2021 we changed our name to Brightr to reflect our love of making Aotearoa a better, brighter place one home at a time. We're here to help brighter tomorrows start today with warmer, healthier homes that work smarter and use less energy.
We’ve set ourselves up to set you up, with a focus on personal service for personalised solutions that fit what you and your home needs. We’ve got you covered across most NZ regions. Brightr works better with our trained advisors, installers and auditors and support teams close to where you are in NZ.
Brightr are approved providers in various local Council Targeted Rates programmes for insulation and heating and are an approved provider in EECA's Warmer Kiwi Homes programme.
We’re always expanding our product range which includes ceiling, underfloor & wall insulation (both polyester & glass wool), hot water cylinder wraps, draught proofing, hot water management solutions, heat pumps, panel heaters, home ventilation systems, heat transfer systems, recessed LED downlights, hot water heating, solar PV and hot water and more.
We work with landlords and property managers to help ensure their rental properties are compliant with the new Healthy Homes Standards and continue to work with EECA, regional councils and community trusts to provide additional insulation funding or financial assistance to help make improving your home's energy efficiency, health and comfort more affordable.
