better energy homes scheme

Pat Lennon > SEAI Registered BER Assessor > 087 237 6107

The Better Energy Homes scheme provides grants to homeowners who are interested in improving the energy efficiency of their home. The scheme is open to all owners of existing houses built before 2006. Landlords and owners of multiple properties may also apply, however they must submit a separate application form for each property.
Assistance will be provided by way of fixed grants towards the costs of implementing upgrade measures. The types of measures currently eligible under this scheme are roof insulation, wall insulation, high efficiency boilers, heating control upgrades and solar heating. There is also a grant for households to get a Building Energy Rating (BER) Assessment After the works are completed, which is now mandatory since 8th June 2010.
