Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart
Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart is an insulation programme that gives New Zealanders the opportunity to make their homes warmer, drier and more energy efficient.
The four-year programme started on 1 July 2009 and finishes when grants run out - that's expected in about September 2013. By the time Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart finishes, about 230,000 homes will have been insulated under the programme.
For more information about these grants visit the ENERGYWISE website.
Although the programme is finishing in September, the Government is investing in Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes - a new government insulation programme delivering warmer, drier and healthier homes through community projects.
Better insulation means our homes are warmer, cosier, and easier to heat. Warmer, drier homes bring health benefits, especially for those with respiratory illness or other conditions derived from living in cold, damp, uninsulated houses.
