Comfort Solutions Ireland can apply these discounts for our customers when you choose us as your retrofit partner. The discount will be applied, in full, to your next Electric Ireland electricity bill. If you are not an Electric Ireland customer, this is not a problem but you would need to switch. These are significant discounts and in addition to SEAI grants and tax incentives, make this a superb time to consider a home energy upgrade.
