The benefits

Cheaper heating bills

On average, a home loses 20 - 30% of its heat through the walls which rises even further if they are not insulated. Up to 30% can be lost through a poorly insulated attic. Insulation will reduce heat loss and your heating bills.

More comfort

Our range of wall and attic insulation grants can help make your home more energy efficient and comfortable. A contractor registered with SEAI can help you to choose the best insulation type for your home.

Reduce your emissions

Reducing heat loss through your walls will reduce your energy consumption. As you will be using your heating less, you will also cut down on your greenhouse gas emissions.
