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.

COVID-19 Alert Level update

Warmer Kiwi Homes grant applications are open to residents of areas that are under COVID-19 Alert Level 2 and 3. Please be aware some service providers may be operating at a limited capacity at this time.

We appreciate your patience.

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.

Current wait times for installations

Due to high demand in some regions, it may take up to four months for your insulation and/or heater to be installed.  We understand you want your insulation and/or heater installed as soon as possible and are working to make this happen.

Before you sign a contract, ask your service provider when they will be able to install your insulation and/or heater.  If you think this wait time is too long, please go on to the Warmer Kiwi Homes tool and choose another provider who may be able to complete your installation sooner.

We really appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.
