Did you know that there are thousands of homeowners around the Wellington region that are eligible for government-funded insulation grants, simply because of their address? In this blog post, we will help you check if you – or a friend or family member - are eligible to get your home insulated for just a few hundred dollars.
We are proud to be the sole provider of the new Warmer Kiwi Homes programme in Wellington City, which provides government insulation grants to eligible homeowners to help with the cost of home insulation.
In partnership with Wellington City Council, eligible homeowners in Wellington City can save 85% of the cost of their home insulation.
Here are the criteria below:
If you, or someone you know, owns their home and has a Community Services card, great! Please do get in touch.
Deprivation 9 & 10 zones are areas identified by the Government as lower income. And there are lots of them. If you happen to own and live in a home in one of these areas, you are eligible for insulation grants under the Warmer Kiwi Homes programme.
Since this programme started, we’ve spoken to hundreds of homeowners who had no idea they lived in these areas, and were therefore eligible for the insulation grants – even if they don’t have a Community Services Card.
After a free home assessment, a typical quote for their new home insulation after the Warmer Kiwi Homes funding and contribution from WCC is reduced from $2000 to just $300.
We decided to do the legwork for you and put together this handy list of Wellington addresses that are in the lower income areas, and eligible for the funding. If you live in Newtown, Berhampore, Strathmore Park or Miramar, we highly recommend having a quick check to see if you are eligible below.
Due to the nature of the zones, often there are streets with just one side - or certain numbers - eligible. We know it can be confusing, so please feel free to give us if you just want to double check – 0508 78 78 24
So without further ado, here it is! Good luck!
There we go! Quite the list of homes. If your property is on this list, then congratulations, you're eligible for the insulation grants! Please give us a call on 0508 78 78 24, or fill out this contact form and we'll be in touch as soon as possible.
Know anyone who owns their home on any of these streets? I'm sure they'd appreciate the heads up - it's not every day you could save someone thousands of dollars...
Please bear in mind though that there is only limited funding available under the Warmer Kiwi Homes programme. We recommend getting in touch as soon as possible so as not to miss out.
Last financial year, we provided the highest number of free, lined curtains ever to families with Community Services Cards. To be exact, we gave 2462 sets of curtains to 604 households! But we want to give out even more this year before our Wellington Curtain Bank closes on 30 November.
