Government incentives available to Irish Homeowners upgrading their heating system

If you are a homeowner in the Republic of Ireland, the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) offers several financial grants, should you wish to upgrade your home heating controls, install an air source heat pump or solar thermal panels.

Upgrading your heating controls

Installing heating controls to your home heating system can reduce your energy usage by up to 20%. If you do not have heating controls, you may find you are incurring unnecessary energy wastage and higher heating bills. This is due to the lack of control you have over the amount of heat you are using to heat your home and your hot water.

Modern heating controls, such as Grant smart heating controls can be added to your heating system to allow it to operate as efficiently as possible, at the touch of a button. These slim and stylish smart controls can be set to provide different room temperatures and different time intervals on individual heating zones, with a wireless option also available. This means when you need heat and hot water it is there, and it is turned off when it is not needed.

Installing a heat pump

With a growing focus on sustainability, carbon reduction, and reducing environmental impact, incorporating renewable energy sources like an air to water air source heat pump, into your home's heating design is important and can help to future-proof the home.

Products such as our Grant Aerona³ R32 air to water air source heat pump offers homeowners, specifically those building their own home, a cleaner, more environmentally friendly heating solution and can lower a property’s overall carbon footprint, whilst helping to achieve required building standards.

Air to water air source heat pumps are best suited to new build or deep retrofit projects, as your property must be well insulated to maximise the benefits of a heat pump.

Installing solar thermal panels

If you would like to save money on your annual hot water heating bills, then installing solar thermal panels may be a solution for you. Solar thermal panels offer homeowners a sustainable solar water heating solution and can provide up to 70% of a household’s hot water needs per year.

Installing solar thermal panels, such as those offered by Grant, can save you money on your annual hot water heating bills, reduce your energy consumption, and cut down on your greenhouse gas emissions.
