Home Insulation | WISE Charitable Trust

Call us now to find out if you qualify for free insulation

New Zealand housing has been widely described as ‘old and cold’, but you don’t have to put up with
living in a cold, damp house. Since 2000 WISE has insulated in excess of 10,000 homes and work with
EECA to offer up to 100% subsidy for eligible home owners.

EECA covers 90% of the cost of insulation and WISE through our funders, will cover 10% of the cost of the insulation.

What criteria is used for eligibility:

  • Home owner must occupy house built before 2008
  • Have a Community Service Card/SuperGold endorsed by CSC

IF you do not have a Community Service Card/SuperGold endorsed by CSC, you might still be eligible for free insulation.

Without insulation your home will lose heat through the roof, the walls and the floor which will in turn
make your home cold, damp and ultimately impact on your family's health. For houses built before
2000, insulation specified may have been inadequate, is no longer in good condition or in the case of
many older houses, never fitted at all. In these cases insulation can be easily retrofitted into the ceiling
and underfloor cavities (if they are accessible), with virtually no impact on the structure of the house.


We are proud to use Mammoth, Bradford and Greenstuf products for ceilings, underfloor and walls.

Thank you very much, I am very impressed with the service you provided in all areas. The difference it's made to my home is incredible.

Excellent service and efficient staff with friendly attitudes. This service is a credit to Taranaki and I would not hesitate to refer anyone else to WISE. Thank you so much for your service, we love our warm home now.

S Baldock (Taranaki)

Thank you. Our house feels warmer, is easier to heat and hold the heat; it has made a difference. Everyone who has visited has been great, very respectful of our home.

Absolutely stoked with the new insulation, its warmer and drier already. Everyone was polite and helpful. What a fantastic business to run helping so many people out :-) 100%.

Thank you for keeping our house warm. It has made a huge difference and helps with my son's lungs a lot; this means less hospital time :-)
