Better Energy Homes grant update

Almost 350,000 homes throughout the country have benefited from energy efficiency grants through the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) to make energy improvements in their homes. The SEAI are currently urging homeowners to avail of their entitlement to the Better Energy Homes (BEH) grant which can cover about 30% of the average cost of the upgrade works, making their homes warmer and more energy efficient. The grants are awarded for upgrades like roof and wall insulation, heating system upgrades and solar heating.

The BEH grant is available to homes built before 2006 for attic insulation, wall insulation (internal, external and cavity), heating upgrades and solar heating. The fixed grant payments range from €300 for attic or cavity insulation to €4,500 for external wall insulation on a detached house, with staggered amounts in between, depending on the upgrade undertaken. There are additional bonus payments if three or more upgrades are completed.

The SEAI say "A typical three bed semi-detached household spends about €2,500 on energy bills per year, of which €1,800 goes towards heating. If they were to have their walls insulated and a new heating system installed, they could potentially save over 30% on their bills."

Once eligible homeowners have decided which upgrades they need in their home, they can apply online and get immediate approval. To complete the application, homeowners will need their electricity meter number (available on the top of their electric bill), plus our Contractor ID number which is 13882. Once approved, homeowners have six months to get the works completed and claim the grant.
