Deep Energy Retrofit

1. CSI Main Corporate Photo 2018This scheme offers very significant funding, to completely transform customer homes into warm, efficient & fresh spaces that are cheap to heat & extremely comfortable. The Deep Retrofit programme has been designed to give substantial support to homeowners who are willing to invest in their home and bring the BER of the building up to at least an A3. Bringing your home to this level of efficiency means that your energy bills will be very low for the rest of the building's lifetime, that your home will be extremely comfortable and enjoy steady temperatures and that the air quality within your home will be of a very high level.

Energy Efficiency Obligation Scheme

EI-EEOS LogoDiscounts are now available from energy companies in return for "energy credits", under the Energy Efficiency Obligation Scheme (EEOS) for energy efficient works on your home. Being a retrofit partner of Kore, we are working through Electric Ireland to bring these discounts to our customers. This is a futher incentive for homeowners to retrofit their homes in an energy efficient way. 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. (Please note that we can also register these energy credits and offer you a small discount if you are not an Electric Ireland customer)

Heat Pump Grant

OutdoorA cash grant is now available to assist with the cost of installing a heat pump in your existing home. Please beware that it's of the upmost importantance that your contractor and the proposed heat pump are registered and certified respectively, for grant eligibility. There have been many, many cases of heat pumps being installed and when it comes around to claiming the grant, funding is denied because the heat pump didn't have the required certification and/or the contractor or his installer was not registered with SEAI. At Comfort Solutions Ireland, we guarantee only high quality and correctly certified heat pumps and all our installers are suitabely qualified, experienced and registered for heat pump installations. 

All homeowners, including landlords, whose homes were built and occupied before 2011 can apply. This is defined as the date your electricity meter was installed. Note that this is different to other grant measures where the home must be built before 2006.

Bank financing

Euro housesBanks and Credit Unions are presently very open to lending money for home improvements which improve energy efficiency. These institutions know that energy efficiency works will reduce the household energy bills, thereby putting the homeowner in a much better position in terms of making loan repayments based on those savings.

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.
