Coldest Place In New Zealand Thinks Of
having The correct Insulation Fitted.
Despite the rivalry between Ophir and Ranfurly regarding New Zealand’s coldest town, Knauf Insulation chose the Central Otago settlement of Ophir when they decided to insulate the homes of a resilient community.
Knauf has completed a 12-month project to insulate every single home and most commercial buildings in Ophir from the pub to the church, warming up the lives of the 50 residents of the small town and the thousands of rail trail visitors that pass through every year.
“Knauf is a family owned company that prides itself on community values and being a responsible corporate citizen. We believed this was a useful way to demonstrate our commitment to improving energy efficiency in New Zealand and help some very hardy South Islanders become more comfortable in their homes,” said Stuart Dunbar, General Manager of Knauf Insulation AU/NZ.
In 1995, Ophir, two hours outside of Dunedin, recorded New Zealand’s coldest temperature of -21.6°C. Residents remember livestock freezing to the ground and prising frozen hens from their perches.
“We would have to cart buckets of water to the toilet to be able to flush because all of the pipes were frozen,” recalls Jack Allen, an Ophir local.
