* Cash grants are a set value, unless the expenditure is below the set value, in which case the actual expenditure will be reimbursed

** A Technical Assessment is required to obtain any heat pump grant. The €200 grant towards the technical assessment is payable, only on the successful completion of a heat pump installation and is paid in conjunction with the heat pump grant.

*** A Building Energy Rating (BER) is an integral part of all grant applications under the Better Energy Homes scheme, whereby homeowners must undertake a BER on their home after grant aided works have been completed. Only one BER grant can be obtained per home so if it has been claimed in a previous grant application for any of the above measures, it can not be claimed again. 

All grants must be applied for before works commence and there is then a 6 month window during which to carry out the works. The grant money is then claimed after the measures are completed, the Declaration Of Works (DOW) forms have been completed and returned to SEAI and the contractor has been paid by or has entered a financing agreement with the homeowner. In general, the grant payment is made, directly to the homeowner's nominated bank account, 4 - 6 weeks after the completed DOW forms have been submitted to the SEAI.

The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) will monitor all activity by recording the Building Energy Rating (BER) of every home before and after works are carried out, and verifying what measures have been carried out and by whom.
