Free home insulation on offer
The public is being encouraged to make use of the Warm Up Capital & Coast insulation initiative available this month.
A 100 per cent subsidised home insulation retrofit is available to nominated homeowners or lease signees who hold a valid Community Services Card.
The house must be privately owned and have been built before the year 2000 to be eligible for the free insulation, with some other basic criteria to be confirmed during a free in-home assessment.
The insulation material used is GreenStuf, an environmentally friendly polyester product that has Asthma Foundation approval and a durability warranty of 50 years.
Warm Up Capital & Coast is a joint venture between C&CDHB, Autex Industries, Insulation Company, and Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority. Email healthylifestyle@ ccdhb.org.nz for referral.
