It's easy to get the Rotorua Hot Swap loan
Go to www.hotswap.co.nz or call 0800 HOT SWAP (468 792) to look at the heating available and request a home heating assessment and quote.
A home heating assessment advises you about the best clean heat appliance for your home and your situation. It will help you match the right clean heat appliance for the needs of your household and your budget.
Our service providers will talk you through the process when they complete your home heating assessment.
We recommend you get at least two quotes and don't make any decisions on the type of clean heat appliance you want until you get a home heating assessment.
