50-80% OFF Home Insulation available*!

Otago homeowners and landlords may be eligible for 50-80% OFF home insulation under the Otago Community Trust insulation programme. 

For Tenants with Community Services Cards:

Landlords with eligible tenants may get 50% OFF insulation as part of the EECA Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes Rental programme: 

Landlords are required to make a small contribution. You will need to get your landlord's approval before booking your rental property check.

For Accommodation Supplement Recipients: 

You may be eligible for 50% insulation subsidies for the property you reside in. You will need to show proof of your current Accommodation Supplement (Working for Families) statement.

For Homeowners with Community Services Cards:

You may be eligible for 80% insulation subsidies if you are an owner-occupier and have a current Community Services Card.

To qualify: 

  1. the home must be built before 2000

  2. you must be a low-income homeowner or tenant with a Community Services Card (tenant to be named on the Tenancy Agreement), or

  3. at least one occupant must have a health referral from an approved health provider

Put the rest of the costs on your Rates!

You may even be able to put remaining costs on your rates! As a Dunedin City Council ratepayer, you may also be able to put the cost of the Insulation (and a Heat Pump once insulation is done) on your rates, and pay it off over up to 10 years. We can even help you with the paperwork.

If your home is already insulated, or you're not eligible for the funding, we can still help you with other finance options for insulation, heating, ventilation, hot water management solutions, LED downlights and more.

If you’re not sure about what you need we can even provide you with a Free Home Energy Plan.

Contact us today and we'll visit you and discuss what you need and the funding and finance options are available to you.

How we have worked with Otago Community Trust

The Otago Community Trust has been part of EECA's insulation programme since it's launch in 2013 and together with Smart Energy Solutions has insulated over 1,600 homes in the region.

The Trust recognises the value of insulation and that it does make a noticeable difference to the health of people as well as improving the warmth, comfort and energy efficiency of homes. This is why the Trust is putting more funding towards insulating more Otago homes as part of its Warm Homes Project.

Smart Energy Solutions is proud to work with the Otago Community Trust and EECA to help Otago homeowners have warmer, drier and healthier homes.
