Right House are an approved ENERGYWISE TM Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart programme service provider and can help homeowners and landlords install insulation to achieve warmer, drier and healthier New Zealand homes.
Better insulation means a warmer, drier and more comfortable home that should be easier and cheaper to heat. It's especially important for people with respiratory illness or other conditions bought on by living in cold, damp house.
And matching up a well-insulated home with a clean, efficient heating system means even greater comfort that costs you and the environment less.

What is EECA?
EECA (Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority) is a Government organisation designed to encourage, support and promote energy efficiency.
In July 2009 it launched its "Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart" programme. It is an insulation and clean heating programme that will give more New Zealander's than ever before the opportunity to make their homes warmer, drier and more energy efficient. It aims to retrofit more than 188,500 New Zealand homes over the next four years.
Funding for general heating is no longer available through EECA. However, in some regions there are clean heating grants available to replace non-compliant heating devices. Contact the Right House team for more information about 'clean air funding'.
