EECA Energywise Insulation Grants

Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes grants are available for ceiling and underfloor insulation, with 50% off the cost until the end of June 2018.

An insulated home is easier to heat, more comfortable and better for your health. Insulation acts as a barrier to heat loss and heat gain, particularly in roofs and ceilings, walls and floors.

It can save up to 80% in heating and cooling losses. In addition, insulation may reduce condensation, mould and damp in your home.
