Get insulation or a heat pump on your rates.

South Waikato District Council's 'Buy Now Pay Later' scheme.

As a South Waikato District Council ratepayer, you may be eligible for the voluntary ‘Buy Now Pay Later’ scheme which allows homeowners of homes built pre-2000 to replace a non-compliant woodburner with a clean heat option, like a heat pump, and have insulation installed and you pay nothing up front.

Brightr is the approved EECA provider and can visit your home and provide a free no-obligation quote for insulation, heating, ventilation, heat transfer systems, and other energy efficiency solutions. We can install your products and help with any paperwork.

  • For rental properties it will be mandatory to have minimum levels of home insulation soon so this rates programme is a great opportunity for both homeowners and landlords to bring their houses up to spec. We have other finance options available to help pay the difference.
  • Ask us what special offers we have for insulation and more in your area!

Don't wait any longer, book your Home Assessment today and find out how you can apply. Remember, you must replace your non-compliant woodburner first to be eligible for council assistance.
