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.

Loft Insulation

I found Comfort Solutions through their web site. I contacted them and they came very quickly to give a quote on the day and at the time that was requested. Our loft although lagged was not up to current specifications. After some discussion we decided to just have our... Read more
