Better Energy Home Scheme

House2Home are offering a grant of up €14,300 to homeowners who wish to bring their homes to a high level of energy efficiency via SEAI’s Better Energy Home Scheme and Energy Efficiency Obligation Scheme.  

The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland are the Government body tasked with reducing carbon emissions nationally, to meet EU targets set for 2020. The Better Energy Home Scheme is the most comprehensive and generous programme launched to Irish homeowners to date, which will see them receive fixed cash amounts towards the cost of energy related upgrades such as insulation and heating improvements. When you add House2Home Energy Credit Incentives, this can reduce the overall cost by a substantial amount. 

How Does the Better Energy Home Scheme Work?

Homeowners can choose the right energy efficiency improvement for their home, and view the fixed cash amount that Seai will fund towards the cost of the upgrade. Ordinarily, homeowners would have to pay for these upgrades and claim the grant back at a later date. Some of the benefits of engaging House2Home are as follows:

  • We discount the grant up-front, so you do not have to wait for the grant 
  • We carry out all works, not just one or two measures
  • We organise the BER for you
  • We hold the highest level of insurances 
  • We are members of the Construction Industry Register of Ireland
  • We are a member of the Irish Green Building Council 
  • We are members of the Micro Renewable Energy Federation and the Construction Industry Federation

How does the House2Home Energy Credit Incentive Work?

The same criteria applies to the House2Home Energy Credit Incentive Scheme as the Better Energy Home Scheme. Our Energy Partner, Energia, will offer a substantial contribution for energy efficiency works to their customers. We discount this from your energy efficiency works, further reducing the costs! We handle all the paperwork in relation to Energy Credits. 

What are the steps from application to completion?

Step 1
The initial consultation is an over the phone questionnaire with our Engineers. This will gather critical information for us such as your wants/needs, house type, age and applicable energy upgrades. 

Step 2
We then arrange a time to meet you at your home. We conduct a complete analysis of the property to ensure that we can provide you with accurate costs of retrofitting. Once we have the costs determined, we ask you to call to our showrooms, where we discuss each item that we have costed for, and show you items such as insulation, solar panels and heating systems in our 10,000sqft showrooms. 

Step 3
Once you are happy to proceed to grant application stage, we arrange all paperwork and forward you a professional services contract for your approval. We also arrange the start and finish date, to coincide with your schedule.  

Step 4
We complete your project and ask you to give us feedback. All certification is presented to you upon completion. 

Step 5
We schedule a BER assessor to phone you and arrange an assessment, to verify our work for Seai.  

Step 6
Once works are completed, SEAI will inspect the home to ensure the standard of work complies with their guidelines, the products and materials installed are compliant and that all elements of works are working correctly. SEAI basically carry out Quality Assurance on your project (should it be selected), double checking our work to ensure maximum benefits to the homeowner and the delivery of quality projects.
