As one of New Zealand’s most respected insulation brands, EXPOL was delighted to play host to Housing Minister Phil Twyford and representatives from ANZ bank for the launch of an innovative new home insulation scheme.
Thursday, 10th May 2018 saw our Auckland team play host to Housing Minister Phil Twyford and ANZ representatives, who visited our Auckland manufacturing plant to launch ANZ’s new initiative – interest-free loans to help Kiwis insulate their homes.
Under the scheme, interest-free loans of up to $5,000 per home will be available to ANZ customers that hold existing home loans with the bank.
“Cold, damp and mouldy homes are a major problem in New Zealand, resulting in many health problems, expensive energy bills and degradation of properties,” said David Hisco, ANZ CEO.
“ANZ wants to help New Zealand resolve this major social, environmental and economic problem. Properly installed insulation can transform an unhealthy home literally overnight and vastly improve the quality of life – particularly for children.”
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said dry, healthy homes have been a priority of the Government. Its new Health Homes Guarantee Act requires rental homes in New Zealand to meet minimum heating and insulation standards. The Government offers $2000 insulation grants, and acknowledges the work of organisations that help make New Zealanders’ homes warmer and drier.
