EECA Insulation Subsidies

The current EECA ENERGYWISE™ Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes programme was set up by the New Zealand government to help make NZ homes healthier, warmer and more energy efficient.

Smart Energy Solutions is an approved partner of the EECA Energywise Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes programme and has 50% insulation subsidies available* for eligible homes. Some regions may offer higher subsidies if they have local Trusts contributing extra funding.

Landlords - don't wait - funding is limited

The Government has very recently extended the eligibility for Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes (WUNZ:HH) insulation grants to include low-income homeowners - in addition to landlords - with low-income or high health need tenants. The change took effect from Wednesday 28 June 2017 and finishes at the end of the programme on 30 June 2018.  

This means 55% insulation grants covering the cost of ceiling and underfloor insulation are now available for eligible homeowners and landlords with eligible tenants.

Landlords - Get a Quote

Whether or not your tenant & property meet the subsidy criteria we can provide a no-obligation quote for insulation. If you aren't eligible for subsidies read on or call us for more information about current discounts and the option of putting the costs onto your council rates* or top-up your mortgage. 

We make it simple: 

  • Send us the details of your rental properties
  • We'll contact your tenants and arrange a time to visit
  • We'll provide a quote and information on any funding or finance support available
  • We install your insulation and smoke alarms if you need them
  • We'll provide a Statement of Insulation (worth $49 per property) for your new Tenancy Agreements

We also assist landlords with a range of other energy efficiency improvements including heat pumps, ventilation systems, extractors, LED downlights and more. Remediation such as insulation is an exemption under new LVR funding rules too.


If you meet the above Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes criteria tell your landlord as they may be able to access 55% funding to cover the insulation costs for your home.

Let your landlord know we can do an obligation-free quote and can send them the paperwork, including what funding is available. We need the property owners permission before you book an assessment.
