How it works.
A Westpac Warm Up loan is available to people living in their own homes and to landlords. You can use it for any mix of insulation, eligible heat pumps, double glazing, ventilation, wood burners and solar power systems.
A professional installer must fit the items. If you apply for a Westpac Warm Up loan, you'll need to show an installer's quote or invoice that is no more than 30 days old.
You can choose a fixed single-split heat pump system, multi-split heat pump system or a ducted heat pump system. Other types, such as portable heat pumps and heat pump water heaters, are not eligible. To find the most energy efficient heat pumps, use the Rightware tool by Energy Wise.
Please refer to the guidelines from the Ministry of Environment for information on sustainable wood burners.
