Currently the Government is providing a scheme known as the Better Energy Homes Scheme provided through Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) which provides grants to home owners who have built their homes prior to 2006. Homes built after 2006 were built with a very high standard of insulation and heating controls, and therefore upgrading these measures is not necessary.
The Better Energy Homes Scheme provides assistance to home owners who are interested in improving the energy efficiency of their home in order to reduce energy use and costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Warm n’ Cosy are happy to provide any assistance they can during the grant application process.
Types of Insulation work applicable
- Roof insulation
- Attic insulation
- Wall insulation – cavity wall, internal dry lining or external insulation
- A Building Energy Rating (BER) after the energy-saving work is carried out (you must get this BER to qualify for the grant)
