So How Does it Work?
Decide what energy efficient measure best suits your home. We can help guide you through this process.
Fill out the online application form. 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.
To be eligible for the Better Energy Homes grant, your home must have been built and occupied before 2006. That means that the electricity meter must have been installed by the end of 2005. Homes built from 2006 onwards should have been constructed to the 2003 Building Regulations and so should not require significant insulation or heating system upgrades.
