Retrofit Your Home - repayable financial assistance to heat or insulate your home

Retrofit Your Home - he pūtea te whakahokia anō hei whakamahana me te āta purupuru i tō kāinga noho

​If your home is cold, damp or not well insulated, and you meet the eligibility criteria, you can apply for financial assistance through our Retrofit Your Home programme.

How much you can get

As a ratepayer you can apply for up to $5000 (including GST) for home improvement options:

  • home insulation
  • clean heating
  • fire place removal
  • bathroom or kitchen mechanical extraction
  • water tank installation
  • water efficient devices.

How you can repay

You will pay back the borrowed amount through your property rates, including interest charges, over nine years.

See Retrofit Your Home repayments for information about instalments.

Do you qualify?

You qualify if you are:

  • an Auckland Council ratepayer
  • up to date with your rates payments and have a good payment history.

If you have more than one house, you can apply for up to $5000 for each house.

For clean heat options, your home must already be insulated.

Other financial assistance for landlords and homeowners

Landlords and homeowners may be eligible for an insulation grant through Warm Up New Zealand: Healthy Homes if the tenants or homeowners:

  • have a low income
  • have health problems related to cold, damp housing.

Recipients will not need to pay back the grant.

For details, go to the Warm up New Zealand website.
