In 2008, The Government introduced a programme ‘Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart” to create healthier homes through funding insulation for NZ homes without it. The Government’s programme to help insulate New Zealand homes, has now reached the milestone of 150,000 insulated homes. InsulPro’s NOVAtherm polyester ceiling insulation and NOVAfloor polyester underfloor insulation has been installed in many of those 150,000 New Zealand homes.
Below is the 150,000th home to be insulated…
Helen Jennings, Mike Treadgold and daughters Hailey and Charlotte with Minister Phil Heatley at their Auckland home, being insulated under the Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart programme.
Energy and Resources Minister, Phil Heatley, announced “Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart is making a real difference to the lives of New Zealanders…Insulated homes are easier and cheaper to heat to healthy temperatures. Warmer homes mean fewer visits to the doctor, and greater productivity with less need to take time off work or school.” The success of the scheme was also recognised in this year’s budget announcement, with the Government committing to the scheme for a further 12 months until July 2014.
The Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart scheme is run by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA). It offers funding to homes built before the year 2000 to help homeowners get their ceiling and underfloor insulated. Since InsulPro’s NOVAtherm ceiling and NOVAfloor underfloor insulation are both EECA approved, it means you can request our product from an installer in your area.
