Free insulation and installation support

Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes projects provide free ceiling and underfloor insulation to low-income households with people who have health needs related to cold, damp housing.

 

Video - Robert Linterman explains the Warm Up New Zealand programme.

Who should apply

You may be eligible for a Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes project if:

  • you’re a home owner or tenant with a Community Services Card, and
  • your house is occupied by someone under 17 years or over 65 years or
  • someone in your house has health needs related to cold, damp housing
  • you live in an area covered by one of our projects.

In some regions (for example Nelson) you might be referred to a project by a medical health professional.
