Grants for Home Insulation

Under the Warmer Homes Scheme – certain home owners in Ireland can get energy saving work done on their houses for FREE.

The scheme is open to the following homeowners whose house was built before 2002:
a) Those getting  a Fuel Allowance as part of the National Fuel Scheme
b) Those getting Family Income Supplement
c) Those in reciept of Jobseeker’s Allowance for over 6 months with at least 1 child  aged under 7 .

** Pensioners can get the fuel allowance if their weekly  income is below €330.30 (single) or €536.60 (couple)

The measures currently available for free under this scheme are:

Attic insulation ;  Cavity wall insulation; Draught proofing ; Hot Water tank Lagging jackets  and Low energy light bulbs.

The bad news is that currently there is a wait of at least 9 months to get the work done -  so the work might just be carried out by next winter if you apply now.

This scheme has been allocated  funding of €20 million for 2013, and is expected to deliver upgrades to approximately 12,000 homes this year.

You have to call  this freephone number to apply : 1800 250 204.

Or e-mail warmerhomes@seai.ie
