EECA Insulation Subsidies
- Product description
- Product details
50% subsidies. T&Cs apply.
The Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes programme was set up by the New Zealand government to assist kiwis in making their homes healthier, warmer and more energy efficient.
The current programme has recently been extended to offer 50% insulation subsidies for low income homeowners and landlords with low income tenants in homes built prior to 2000. Funding is limited so don't wait - insulate your homes or rentals as soon as you can.
We also have other insulation subsidies for homeowners in specific regions that are not eligible under EECA's programme, thanks to the funding support of a number of Community Trusts. Refer to the Q&As below for more details or contact us today.

How long are subsidies available for?
EECA subsidies are only available until June 2018. The number of subsidies is limited however and are on a "first come-first served" basis.
Note also the insulation is mandatory in all rental properties by July 2019 so there is a 50% incentive to act early.
I'm a tenant can I get a subsidy for my home?
If you meet the Warm Up New Zealand:Healthy Homes criteria tell your landlord as they may be able to get 50% funding to cover the insulation costs for your home. Insulation is mandatory by July 2019 but the subsidies end in June 2018.
Let your landlord know we can do an obligation-free quote and can send them the paperwork, including what funding is available.
We need the property owner's permission before you book an assessment and we are happy to contact them on your behalf if you pass on their contact details.
