Investing in the health of your home and family makes sense. Using our finance packages allows you to enjoy a warmer, dryer home without the immediate capital outlay. Why suffer through another cold winter when you can do it now? It’s using finance in a good, positive way. You can even put the energy savings into paying your insulation and heat pump off!
Auckland Council Retrofit Your Home
If your home is draughty, damp or not well insulated, you can apply for up to $5000 financial assistance through our Retrofit Your Home programme. You will need to meet eligibility criteria.
You are eligible if:
- your house was built before 2000
- you are an Auckland Council ratepayer
- you are up to date with your rate payments and have a good payment history.
You can apply for up to $5000 financial assistance to insulate or heat your home. You will repay this assistance over nine years through a targeted rate included on your rates bill.
Interest will be charged on the amount borrowed, at the same rate we pay for our own cost of borrowing, plus a small administrative margin. For the next financial year the rate will be seven per cent. If you want to repay the assistance earlier, you can make extra repayments. If you have more than one house, you can apply for assistance for each of them. If you’ve already had ceiling and underfloor insulation installed through an ENERGYWISE grant, you can apply to get clean heating through Retrofit Your Home. If you sell your house, the financial assistance owing on the property passes to the new homeowner. The seller has a legal requirement to inform any purchaser of the existence of the rate, and you must include a written provision in any sale agreement recording that disclosure.
