Special offer for Masterton and Wainuiomata homes

Updated 9 June 2017 4:13pm

Because Masterton and Wainuiomata are situated in inland valleys fringed with hills, air pollution can linger on cold, windless nights when people stay home and light their fires.

The particles and other pollutants in smoke can cause a range of health effects and young people, the elderly and people with poor respiratory systems are the most likely to be affected.

 

Breathe easier

Warm Greater Wellington now offers assistance for people who live in the Masterton and Wainuiomata Districts so you can replace your old wood burner and open fire with clean heating appliances such as heat pumps.
