The South Waikato District Council has been on a quest to clean up the air quality in the South Waikato District via the decommissioning of non-compliant woodburners, and the installation of clean air approved heating appliances for over a decade.
The SWDC ‘Split the Bill’ and ‘Buy Now Pay Later’ programme provides funding towards non-compliant woodburner decommissioning and installation of a clean air approved heat pump. It then offers a 9-year rates loan as a mechanism for paying the balance of the cost off. What’s more, is that you can add insulation into this rates loan if you want to.
