About Us

Abode Construction & Insulation Limited trading as Abode Heating & Insulation, is locally owned and operated by Grant & Megan Burney. 

Grant Burney is a trade qualified builder who has done his fair share of insulation and woodburner installs.  He trains all the installers on best practice when working in the roof space and under the floor of houses.  He is also Abode Heating & Insulation’s head assessor so he knows what he is doing when assessing your house for insulation and heating.  

Why Abode Heating & Insulation?

Abode Heating & Insulation has maintained an excellent insulation audit history with EECA as a Service Provider of insulation, under the EECA Warm Up NZ Heat Smart Programme which finished in September 2018.

Abode is one of the highest achieving Service Provider’s under the Hawkes Bay Regional Council HeatSmart Programme, and one of the largest installers of woodfires in Hawkes Bay.  Abode has also taken on the new role as Service Provider for the Council's latest initiative, Sustainable Homes. 

Here are some further reasons to choose Abode:

  • We are a one stop shop. We supply and install insulation, heat pumps, woodburners, pellet fires, heat transfer systems, ventilation systems and all loans and grants with HBRC.
  • We quote for the whole job and project manage it for you to.  We arrange permits and do HBRC paperwork.  We arrange plumbers, electricians, tilers, sheetmetallers, hearth builders as required.
  • The majority of our business is gained through referrals from a job well done. 
  • We are local, so support the Bay.  
  • We have a rigorous quality assurance policy.
  • Our workers are polite and presentable, are fully trained and tidy up behind themselves.
  • We can offer repayment instalments and credit card payment options upon request.
  • We no longer have a showroom, making us cheaper as our quotes do not cover the cost of showroom overheads.


Customer Testimonials

"I must mention that I did a thorough inspection of the work done under my house.  From my viewpoint as a structural & architectural engineering draughtsman I would like to commend your team on excellent workmanship.  Simply put - the job could not have been done to a higher standard.  Needless to say the difference in temperature (heat retention) was immediate."



“Our house is UNBELIEVABLY warmer since having the insulation installed.”

"We are over the moon with our new insulation and fireplace and we can't believe how much warmer our home now is!  I am especially pleased with our Bronte fire - it looks great and boy does it put out some heat.  I will sort out the payment over the next couple of days.
I have already given your number to one person and of course have told many how happy we are with your products and service. Thanks again"

"My doctor even phoned me to check I was still alive, as I hadn’t been in since I have had the house insulated.  I used to always be there.”

I have already given your number to one person and of course have told many how happy we are with your products and service.

“I visited the property last week that you insulated for me.  In attendance was an HDC Building Inspector (Bryan the Building Inspector) who had to check the work also, so as to approve my code of compliance application on that building.  I am pleased to report that the Building Inspector thought it was the best insulation job he had ever seen. . . . Bryan asked for the name of your company and said he would have no hesitation in recommending you to people he comes into contact with, who needed similar work done. . . .So, a very big thank you for work carried out in a timely manner,  that exceeded client expectations plus was reasonably priced! Please feel free to use this as a reference and I intend passing this on to the Target programme and Fair Go, (for what it's worth) as the public need to know there are trades people out there such as yourself who take great pride in what they do.”
