Warmer Kiwi Homes (WKH) is a government-funded programme designed to support New Zealand families to live in warmer, drier homes. Funding is available for retrofit installations of approved wood and pellet burners for homeowners who meet specific criteria.
The current WKH programme is funded until 30 June 2024. However this procurement is for a 4-year period from 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2026 assuming additional funding will become available through Government appropriations.
EECA, which runs the programme, expects to provide funding for approximately 9,500 heating appliances in the 2023-2024 year. The majority of these heating appliances are expected to be heat pumps, but there will be some demand for wood burners and pellet burners.
The aim of this procurement project is to contract Service Providers (wood & pellet burners) with the capacity and capability to supply and install compliant wood burners or pellet burners in the North and South Islands of New Zealand as part of this programme.
Service Providers (wood & pellet burners) will be required to deliver the following as part of the programme:
■ Follow-up leads provided by EECA with qualifying homeowners
■ Source products that meet with the compliance criteria outlined below
■ Accurately scope and price each installation
■ Manage the building consent process on behalf of homeowner
■ Provide high quality customer service
■ Provide quality, cost effective installations
■ Train homeowners in the correct use of the heating appliance
■ Provide after-sales support and meet manufacturers’ warranty conditions.
