Warmer Kiwi Homes

Funding for heating solutions.
EECA is offering Warmer Kiwi Homes grants for heaters to make homes warmer, drier and healthier.
Warmer Kiwi Homes is a four-year Government programme now offering grants covering 90% of the cost of an efficient wood burner, pellet burner or heat pump (capped at $3000 including GST).

Find out if you are eligible and apply
Use our online tool to check your eligibility and apply for a grant

To be eligible for a grant you need to own the home you live in, and:
- Your home must have been built before 2008
- You must have a Community Services or SuperGold Combo Card.
- Live in an area identified as lower-income.

To be eligible for a grant for a heater you will need to meet the criteria above, and:
You must not have an existing fixed heater in the main living area - e.g. a heat pump, wood or pellet burner, flued gas heater or central heating system. As insulation is the most important feature for a warm and healthy home, you will need to have ceiling and underfloor insulation installed to EECA standard before you will be eligible for a grant for a heater.
If you don’t have adequate insulation, grants are available.
If your home has been insulated through a Government insulation programme, that will be confirmed by us when you apply for a heater grant. Otherwise an EECA insulation provider will do a quick check.

What next?
Once you have applied for a grant through the Warmer Kiwi Homes tool, we will contact you to arrange a visit to view your home. We will then talk about the process of getting a heater installed.
