Warmer Kiwi Homes First Installation

Hitachi Heat Pumps are delighted to have been a part of the very first installation of ECCA’s Warmer Kiwi Homes programme. Heating appliances are now subsidised through the Warmer Kiwi Homes initiative from the 1st of July 2019. EnergySmart, Hitachi Authorised Installers, did a wonderful job of the installation in Christchurch and are proud to support ECCA in making homes warmer and healthier for Kiwi’s. We know at least one New Zealand family will be warmer this winter and can’t wait to help more.


The ECCA Warmer Kiwi Homes grant is for owner-occupied homes only and to qualify for a grant you must have a Community Services Card or SuperGold Combo Card. If do not have one of these, you may be eligible if you live in a low-income area with a home built before 2008. Use ECCA’s quick assessment tool to find out if you are eligible for a grant and to find an installer to provide a free, no-obligation quote.


EnergySmart installed Hitachi’s RAS-E50YHA, a 6kW heating unit with a 3.5 energy star rating. The unit is part of Hitachi’s contemporary ‘E’ Series range, offering a sleek design with flexible features to ensure you get the most out of your heat pump. Your comfort is at the heart of the design of our products. Our heat pumps are designed to provide you with year round comfort with inverter technology for heating in the winter and cooling in the summer.


Hitachi heat pumps have one of the most attractive offerings in the Warmer Kiwi Home programme. Hitachi is the most affordable brand in the programme. Within the 4kW heating options our RAS-S35YHA heat pump receives a heating 5-star energy rating and is the only consumer recommended product, this is perfect for many average sized living rooms. The other three Hitachi heat pumps we offer through the Warmer Kiwi Homes initiative feature amongst the best heating energy star ratings for comparative product.
