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.
What does a grant cover?
Warmer Kiwi Homes grants are available to homeowners (not for rental properties) and cover both:
- 90% of the cost of ceiling and underfloor insulation. In some areas, generous funding from community organisations means the cost to the homeowner is even lower for insulation.
- 90% 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
As we head into winter, high demand for grants means insulation and heating installers are very busy. They are also catching up on installs from Alert Level 4.
Wait times vary between regions but it may take up to three 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. We really appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.
