We live in the best place in the world. But the places we live in aren't always built to suit New Zealand conditions. Half of all Kiwi homes lack adequate insulation, which makes them cold, damp and expensive to heat. It's impacting our well-being, with 1 in 6 Kiwis affected by respiratory disease.
ANZ is committed to helping Kiwis live in warmer, drier homes. Because a home should be more than a place to live, but to thrive.
Here you can see the ways we are helping you into a warmer, drier and more energy efficient home.

With an ANZ Healthy Home Loan Package, you’ll find buying, building or renovating a home to a 6 Homestar rating or higher a little more affordable, with special discounts on home loan interest rates and other great benefits.
A 6 Homestar rating or higher provides assurance that a house will be warmer, healthier, more environmentally sustainable and cost less to run than a typical new house built to New Zealand Building Code.
You can apply for the Healthy Home Loan Package if you’re buying, building, renovating, or already own a home to a 6 Homestar rating or higher. You also need to have your full salary or wages credited to an ANZ personal banking account.
HomeFit is a straightforward way to check if a home is warm, safe and dry. You can use it to check a home you’re looking to buy or rent, or if you want to know how you can improve your current home. It starts with a simple online check.
HomeFit was developed by the New Zealand Green Building Council and is proudly supported by ANZ.
Interest-Free Home Loan Top Ups: This offer is available for a limited time only. ANZ’s lending and security criteria, terms, conditions, and fees apply. An interest-free top up of up to $5,000 for each residential property that secures your home loan is available, with a maximum of four interest-free loans per customer (two per security, up to two securities). Loans must be fully repaid within four years and ANZ will not extend the loan unless there is unforeseen hardship. ANZ will only draw down the loan when you provide a quote and a confirmed installation date from a reputable installer. While ANZ wants you to be warm and cosy, we do not accept responsibility for the quality of the insulation/heat pumps or installation, so please take care selecting your insulation/heat pumps and installer.
