Conserve and Save with Autumn Home Energy Upgrades

When the nights are long and the chill has crept in, keeping our homes cosy can be a worry in the face of rising energy costs. If you are considering energy upgrades in your home, here is a selection of the leading providers and experts taking part in the PTSB Ideal Home Show.

Get the right advice on retrofitting with Electric Ireland Superhomes

Electric Ireland Superhomes is an SEAI-registered one-stop-shop for home energy retrofit. A whole house energy retrofit involves carrying out a number of energy upgrade measures in one installation to achieve a warmer, more comfortable, energy-efficient home and a BER rating of between B2 and A1. A whole house fossil fuel-free approach considers the following retrofit measures: a renewable energy heat pump as the primary heating system, insulation to a high standard, air tightness improvement (reducing draughts and heat loss), advanced ventilation and solar photovoltaic (PV) if required. An experienced team looks after all the key stages from retrofit design, through to contractor selection, project completion and management of SEAI grant funding.

The SEAI grant funding available is significant and Electric Ireland Superhomes will ensure you get the best value for money and deduct your grant from the upfront costs, so you only pay the difference (net amount). Be sure to visit to The Electric Ireland Superhomes Home Energy Upgrade Pavilion for all you need to know to reduce energy costs or plan to retrofit your home. Electric Ireland Superhomes Experts will also be available for free one-to-one 15-minute consultations on the PhoneWatch Ask an Expert Hub. Read more here.

Understand your options with the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland

The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) has a range of options for those looking to upgrade their homes’ energy efficiency. More and more homeowners are becoming aware of the benefits of carrying out home energy upgrades, with attic and wall insulation a good starting point.
By investing in home energy upgrades and replacing fossil fuel heating systems with a highly efficient heat pump, homeowners are creating a more comfortable home for the future. Heat pumps create a warmer and healthier home by maintaining a constant temperature throughout the year. Even better, as you are no longer using fossil fuels, you are reducing your carbon footprint and creating a much more energy efficient home for the future.

These are long-term investments which will provide significant improvements in home comfort and health, as well as reducing energy consumption and lowering energy bills. The SEAI offers a range of home energy upgrade grants to suit different homeowner budgets and needs, whether carrying out a complete home energy upgrade in one go or over time.
