Insulate now and make the most of funding options available to you!
Community trusts, local health boards and the government recognise the significant benefits of insulation, and have made funding available to homeowners to help bring New Zealand housing up to a healthy standard for living.
Government funded programmes (67% subsidies available now)
New insulation grants covering two thirds of the cost of insulation are available now for low-income homeowners (owner-occupiers). Warmer Kiwi Homes is the the Government's new insulation programme, replacing Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes. The programme now excludes landlords.
Homeowners with Community Services Cards, or living in an area deemed as lower-income are now eligible for grants covering 67% of the cost of ceiling and underfloor insulation. Book your free assessment now to have your home insulated under the new Warmer Kiwi Homes programme.
Warmer Kiwi Homes for Homeowners (Owner-Occupiers):
To be eligible for the 67% insulation grant you must:
- be the homeowner (owner-occupier) and have a Community Services Card or SuperGold combo card, OR
- own and be living in a home in an area identified as lower-income (New Zealand Deprivation Index decile 9 or 10 area) AND
- own a home built before 2008.
Heating grants will be added from 1 July 2019 to align with the heating standards being developed under the Healthy Homes Guarantee Act. If your home is insulated and you meet the eligibility criteria, you will receive a grant (funding amount yet to be confirmed) for a heating appliance. It is possible to get a grant for insulation this year, then come back in 2019 to get a heating appliance installed using a heating grant.
