ANZ Bank New Zealand has announced $100 million in interest-free loans to help Kiwis insulate their homes.
ANZ said the bank would make available to its home loan customers interest free loans to help cover insulating their houses.
“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 an ANZ spokesperson.
“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.”
The interest-free loans will be available to ANZ customers who currently have home loans. The loans will be repayable over a maximum of four years and be for a maximum of $5000 per house for up to two houses. They will be available to home owners and landlords who use registered builders and certified insulation installers.
