Better Energy Homes Scheme
The Better Energy Homes Scheme, (originally Home Energy Saving Scheme HES) provides assistance to homeowners who are interested in improving the energy efficiency of their home in order to reduce energy use and costs as well as greenhouse gas emissions. The scheme is administered by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland.
Assistance is provided by way of fixed grants towards the costs of implementing upgrade measures. The types of measures currently eligible under this scheme are:
· Roof Insulation
· Wall Insulation - this includes either cavity wall, internal dry lining or external insulation
· Replacement High Efficiency (> 90%) Gas or Oil fired Boilers with Heating Controls Upgrade*
· Heating Controls Upgrade*
· Building Energy Rating (BER) - is an integral part to the scheme and is undertaken after grant aided works are completed
