Insulation Subsidies

Funding for Insulation & Heating

The Energy Efficiency & Conservation Authority (EECA) is offering Warmer Kiwi Homes grants for ceiling and underfloor insulation, and ground moisture barriers to make homes warmer, drier and healthier.  

Warmer Kiwi Homes

Warmer Kiwi Homes is a new four-year Government programme offering grants covering two-thirds of the cost of ceiling and underfloor insulation, as well as ground moisture barriers. Additional contributions from community organisations will make the cost to homeowners as low as possible in many areas. 

Abode Heating & Insulation is an EECA service provider in Hawkes Bay and can offer the two-thirds grant.  In addition, but only until 30 September 2018, Abode can offer a further 25% community grant, increasing the total grant to 92% that means all eligible homeowners will only need to pay 8% of the total cost of insulation supply and installation.

For example: based on a 100m2 home your total cost to you for insulating your home could be as little as $150 if you have a concrete floor or up to $375 to upgrade your ceiling and underfloor insulation.

Grants covering two thirds of the cost of heating appliances will be available from July 2019 (these grants will be capped). Please note, Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes grants for landlords came to their scheduled end on 30 June 2018.
