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.

The advice I received from Comfort Solutions was excellent. We opted for the cavity wall filling and loft insulation. Quality of materials and workmanship I couldn't fault.
