Welcome to 'Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart'

HEET makes homes warmer, healthier and more energy-efficient. Warm Up New Zealand: Heat Smart provides a package of insulation and heating improvements for more families than ever before.  It is a Government-funded initiative and the scheme is managed by EECA with the support of a range of service providers such as HEET.  From South Auckland, the Greater Waikato and Taumarunui, HEET is the not for profit team working hard in your community!  

If you own your own home or rent it from a private landlord, there are a range of grants available.

Step 1

Step 2


One of our assessors or scopers will visit your home and suggest improvements which should be made under the Scheme.  A quote will be provided and we can discuss the financial options.

Step 3


Our team of fully-trained installers will make the required improvements to your home, and you will come home to a drier, warmer and healthier home.

Step 4

Quality Check

We regularly check our installers' work so you can be confident in the quality of the service.  An audit  will be carried out on your home by HEET to make sure it has met the required high standard.

So what can we do for your home?
      • Provide polyester blankets for the ceiling – installing them correctly to ensure minimal heat loss

      • Provide a Hot Water Cylinder wrap to keep the tank hotter for longer, for less cost.  (B&C grade cylinders only. These are predominantly in older homes.  Don’t worry we’ll check it for you) 

      • Install underfloor insulation using 35% recycled fibre and plastics so you can save the environment as well as your home! 

      • Install ground cover to stop damp rising – crucial in the Waikato well known for rising damp.

We know we make a difference

      • To families every day by making their homes warmer and drier

      • To the region's children and older people, reducing costs in health 

      • To the environment, by helping people reduce their energy usage.

Other products and services from Heet


HEET use recycled fibres and plastics to insulate your home

From hollow fibre polyester ceiling blanket with a high 'R' value to new R1.4 compressed slabs for the underfloor made from recycled fibre and plastics, your home can be insulated quickly, easily and effectively. As a NOT FOR PROFIT organisation we are also able to provide a competitive home insulation service for families that may not qualify for a fully subsidised service.



Either ceiling and or under floor insulation must be installed in each house with other measures available such as hot water cylinder wrap, lagging, moisture barrier and draught stops on doors. Are you willing to benefit from a 60% subsidy that the NZ Government is offering so that these rental properties can be better insulated.


The places we insulate

We can also work out the most crucial items you need now, and some things that you could have installed later. Install insulation in the roof cavity to reduce the amount of heat loss. Now that's a lot of insulation, which means a lot of heat loss STOPPED. When we make a house warmer and drier - we do the whole lot. Install cylinder wraps to reduce hot water costs.


The benefits of HEET in your community

The cumulative kWhs saved through the installation of energy efficiency measures effectively displaces electrical generation required nationally and equates to a savings of 38,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions. We have documented significant health improvements for occupants with chronic respiratory illness after a energy efficiency retrofit has been carried out.
