Home Energy Grants
The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) has a range of grants for homeowners that can help make your home warmer, cheaper to run, and cut your greenhouse gas emissions. Over 400,000 homes in Ireland have availed of home energy grants to date.
Grants range from €400 for attic insulation, €700 for upgrades to heating controls, all the way to €6,000 for external wall insulation. A new grant of €3,500 for heat pump systems has also been introduced. In well insulated houses, heat pumps are an extremely efficient alternative to fossil fuel and electric home heating systems.
If you are doing a major renovation of your home and want to significantly improve the energy rating up to an A-rating, you may be interested in the deep retrofit grant It provides a 50% grant towards the cost of energy upgrade works.
