Warmer Kiwi Homes tool

Find out below if you are eligible for a grant for a heater and/or home insulation, and to connect with a service provider for a no-obligation quote. Please be advised due to high demand in some areas it may take up to four months for your insulation and/or heating to be installed.

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.
