Home Insulation Programmes for Low Income Families


Counties Manukau District Health Board (CMDHB) in partnership with the Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority (EECA), Autex Industries Limited and The Insulation Company have introduced a free home insulation programme.

Objectives of the free Home Insulation Programme


·         To insulate the homes of low-income families creating 'healthier homes' which are energy efficient and ensure that the home contributes to the health of the family.

·         To undertake a comprehensive health and social assessment of participating families to ensure that they are accessing appropriate health and social services.



  Warm Up Counties Manukau

Counties Manukau District Health Board in partnership with the Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority, Autex Industries Limited and The Insulation Company and other third party funding efforts introduced Warm Up Counties Manukau in December 2009.  We aim to provide insulation to 1000 low income families in Counties Manukau by June 2013.
