It’s easy to check

The Warmer Kiwi Homes is a Government programme offering insulation and heater grants to low income home owners and possibly to home owners whose property is in a low decile area.

Even if you think you won’t qualify, it’s worth checking your address on the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) website to start with.

What does a grant cover?

Warmer Kiwi Homes grants are available to homeowners (not for rental properties) and cover both:

  • 80% of the cost of ceiling and underfloor insulation. In some areas, such as Auckland, generous funding from community organisations means the cost to the homeowner is even lower for insulation.
  • 80% of the cost of a heat pump or efficient wood or pellet burner for the main living area. Grants for heaters are capped at $3000 (including GST). Wood and pellet burners are not available in all areas.
