The Sustainable Energy Authority is urging home owners to explore government funded home energy upgrade options to help reduce energy bills
Significant Government grants are available for individual home energy upgrades such as attic and wall insulation.
A new One Stop Shop service has also been put in place to help home owners by offering a fully managed solution for a complete home energy upgrade
Currently, around half of Irish homes have a BER rating of D or lower, meaning many Irish homeowners are losing out on comfort and savings.
The SEAI is encouraging homeowners to start their home energy upgrade by insulating their attic and walls as a poorly insulated home will lose up to 30% of its heat through attic spaces and walls.
The government has set a target of 500,000 home energy upgrades, to B2 Building Energy Rating (BER) standard, by 2030.
