Auckland - Get Insulation or a Heat Pump on your Rates
Auckland Council's 'Retrofit Your Home' programme
The 'Retrofit Your Home' programme is designed to create a healthier, warmer and drier living environment for all homes and rental properties in the Auckland region. Homeowners and landlords can put the costs of insulation, heat pumps, bathroom extraction systems and more on your rates and pay it back over up to 9 years.
We're one of the approved providers under the Auckland Council rates programme and can make the process easy for you with a free home assessment including recommendations, and a quote, and we'll help you with the Council paperwork. Here's a copy of the Council's Application Pack that you may wish to read through before we visit.

Fund Insulation, Heat Pumps & more
You can apply for up to $5,000 financial assistance through the Council for your home or rental properties. This can help you get your home retrofitted with ceiling insulation, underfloor insulation, a heat pump, a clean air log burner, fireplace removal, bathroom & kitchen extractors, water tank installation or water efficient devices.
The support up to $5,000 is designed to make Auckland homes more energy and water-efficient and keep Auckland families healthier.
If you are eligible for insulation subsidies as part of EECA's Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes programme we can include that in with your quote.

Pay it off over up to 9 years
The funding through the Auckland Council is repaid over a period of 9 years and appears as a separate line item on your usual rates bill. You can make additional repayments if you wish to pay it off earlier.
If you sell your house before fully paying off the financial assistance you are legally required to disclose the existence of the targeted rate to potential buyers. Alternatively you can pay the outstanding amount off in full prior to selling.
What is the interest rate?
The targeted rate is interest bearing but only at the rate that the Auckland Council pays for its finance plus a small administration charge. Typically it works out at approximately 6.6% per annum.

Combining Rates Funding & EECA Subsidies
If your property is eligible for insulation subsidies as part of the government's Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes programme you can use the Council's rates programme to address your heating at the same time.
The insulation subsidies are provided through the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) and will automatically be included on any quote for these items.
