Warmer Kiwi Homes

The government has just announced a new four year insulation and heating programme targeted at owner-occupiers. It comes into effect on July 01, 2018.

Landlords with low-income tenants MUST ACT NOW!

The new legislation does not include financial support for landlords. There is still a short window of opportunity to take advantage of the old 50% subsidies before they expire June 30, 2018. We strongly advise any landlords who have still got to insulate their property to contact us as soon as possible.


If affordability is an issue, CEA may be able to organise other financial assistance including interest free payment plans over a number of months, to help. Criteria applies.


From July 1st 2018 homeowners will be eligible for subsidies if they meet the following criteria:

  • The home must be owner-occupied – i.e. it can’t be a rental property AND
  • The home must be built before 2008

In addition:

  • The homeowner must have a Community Services Card or a Super Gold combo card OR
  • The homeowner has been referred by the Ministry of Health
  • The home is located in Deprivation area 9-10 in the Christchurch region
