Solar PV taking over

Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are a means of generating your own electricity for your own consumption. Excess electricity can now be exported to the National Electricity Grid for payment, making an investment in a solar PV microgeneration system more viable than ever. Combine that to ever-increasing electricity costs and it seems to be a complete no-brainer to install a solar PV system!

That said, homeowners must be careful. Unscrupulous suppliers of solar PV seem to be appearing every single week and we're seeing an hearing new advertisements all over the place. We're here since 2009 and we've installed countless solar PV systems across the region with a great track record and happy customers.

Let us help you to choose the perfect system for your home, call us today on 098 42699, where a member of our helpful team will be happy to assist you.

New and improved grants for improving your home

The SEAI has just announced an improved grants programme for energy-efficient works, including insulation and renewable heating systems. Under the Better Energy Homes scheme, the government are offering bigger grant amounts across a range of measures, in order to help and encourage homeowners to improve their homes. Measures with improved grants include attic insulation, wall insulation and heat pumps. The age band of eligible homes has also changed and going forward, insulation grants will be available to all homes that were built before 2011 (changed from 2006) and renewable energy grants will be available to all homes built before 2021 (changed from 2011). This brings a lot of newer homes into the mix for grant eligibility and will certainly be good news for many homeowners.

The deep retrofit programme also sees an increase in funding but this is not available to all homes. This scheme is managed through a one-stop-shop service provider like ourselves but is generally only suitable for groups of smaller or similar homes such as those in housing estates or towns. One-off housing, whilst not strictly ineligible, are often unsuitable to this scheme due to the complexity and cost of many of these projects.

Amazing new ecoAIR PRO heat pump

PRO Installed carWe're super-excited to introduce a game changer for the domestic heating scene!

The all new Ecoforest ecoAIR PRO is the first of it's kind! Offering vastly superior performance to conventional air to water heat pumps, the new ecoAIR PRO is also super-kind to the environment. Who knew you could have both? Using natural refrigerant R290 the ecoAIR PRO is one step ahead again (maybe more than one step actually!). R290 natural refrigerant is 700 times less polluting that other refrigerants that are commonly being used in many heat pumps today. Now that really is a game-changer!

COVID-19 Coronavirus - cautiously operational

Dear customers and members of the public,

We're operational in line with Government guidance but we're taking every precaution in terms of limiting the spread of COVID-19. All office staff are still working from home where possible but are more than happy to assist you from there. Our installation crews are implementing physical distancing on-site and are engaging in regular handwashing and wiping down of surfaces. Crew sizes have been reduced and strict protocols are in place regarding meeting and working with customers and other trades. This is of course affecting, installation times, project durations and lead times but we are working hard to minimise any delays.

Our priority is the well-being and safety of our staff, our customers and all vulnerable members of our society and we will continue to operate as safely as possible and will be following our Government's guidelines at all times. We thank all our customers and acquaintances for their understanding during this time.

We hope we're coming near the end of this pandemic and we look forward, like everyone, to returning to our normal lives.

Padraig and Margaret Doyle, Ba

We had external wall insulation installed on our detached bungalow and had an attic insulation upgrade during the summer of 2017. We are very pleased with the results as our house is now much cosier in winter time and holds the heat for much longer after the heating switches off... Read more

I have a 1950s bungalow which had no insulation and was always difficult to keep heated in the winter. I searched the internet for insulation companies in the west of Ireland and I found Comfort Solutions. I was impressed with their website and the positive testimonials of previous customers.

External Insulation

Anonymous, newport

I decided to have the insulation of my 2005 built house checked after finding it difficult to keep the rooms warm during the bad winter of 2015/16.   Draughts, cold spots and a boiler that was always on the go meant it was time to do something.
