This scheme is available to homes which meet the following criteria:
Landlords can avail of grants from the Better Energy Homes scheme if they have tenants in, or at risk of, energy poverty. See www.seai.ie/betterenergyhomes for more information.

No, Better Energy Warmer Homes measures are installed at no cost to the recipient household.
Subject to your eligibility for the scheme the next steps are:
Waiting times vary due to significant seasonal demand and in certain areas.
At present waiting times are in the region of nine months. We continue to experience unprecedented demand for the scheme from within a limited budget allocation. So while we will be adding new applicants to our waiting lists, our current service delivery is focussed on those homes that applied before 2015.
Once your home has been surveyed, the appropriate works identified and the installation of measures scheduled, the installation of individual measures typically takes one day. Thereafter the duration of works is a matter of scheduling. It should be noted that there may be delays due to demand and budget availability for the scheme.
No. Better Energy Warmer Homes is for private owner occupiers that meet the eligibility criteria for the scheme. Please see www.seai.ie/betterenergyhomes for details of the Better Energy Homes scheme for which you may be eligible.
To qualify for either scheme you must meet the qualifying criteria and satisfy all terms and conditions.
