Welcome to the Better Energy Homes Programme
Do you want to cosy up your home?
Do you want to save up to 50% on heating bills?
Do you want to do your bit against climate change?
If so, we’d be happy to help you. We’re offering you grants to help you upgrade your home.
It’s the right thing to do - 335,000 other homeowners have already got home grants from SEAI!
This is what you do:
You will get a grant for each measure.
NEW: you will also get an extra €300 if you do three measures and €100 for the fourth.
- Decide what form of upgrade best suits your home. You can do this by talking to a good building contractor, architect,gas installer or energy advisor.
- Pick a contractor from our list of approved contractors (on this website).
- Fill out the online application form on this site. You will be approved within minutes.
- You now have six months to complete the works on your home.
- You will receive a form in the post called the “Declaration of Works” – one for each measure (e.g. one for external wall insulation,one for gas boiler upgrade, etc.) filled in when the works are completed.
- Return the form by post to SEAI, P.O. Box 119, Cahirciveen, Co. Kerry along with the Request for Payment form.
- You will generally find your money in your bank account within four weeks.
- Your contractor may be selected for inspection. This is to maintain a good standard of workmanship.
Congratulations. You now have a warmer home, lower bills and a better BER certificate!
