Free insulation

Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes projects provide free ceiling and underfloor insulation for low-income households occupied by people with health needs related to cold, damp housing. Availability will be through regional projects.

Home owners or tenants may be eligible if they have a Community Services Card and the house is occupied by someone under 17 years or over 65 years.

In some regions, such as Nelson, people will be referred to the programme by the health sector if they are at risk from illness linked to cold, damp housing - e.g. a respiratory condition.

Funding is limited in all areas.

Although insulation will be free for eligible homeowners and tenants, landlords of the eligible tenants may be asked to make a contribution.

Projects by region

If you have an insulation installation arranged through Right House, your job will be completed by another service provider. If you have any questions, please phone Smart Energy Solutions - 0800 888 766. Or please ring EECA on (04) 470 2200.

Not all regions will be covered and there may be some areas within regions without coverage.
