Warmer Home Scheme(WHS)
The Warmer Homes Scheme (WHS) aims to improve the energy efficiency and comfort conditions of homes occupied by vulnerable households in receipt of the National Fuel Allowance through the Department of Social Protection. The services, which are fully funded by SEAI, are provided direct to householders by Community Based Organisations or through private contractors (depending on location).
Services provided include the installation of:
· Attic insulation
· Cavity wall insulation*
· Draught proofing
· Lagging jackets
· Low energy light bulbs
*Not available in all areas
In certain limited circumstances works may include alternative wall insulation formats (external or internal dry-lining) and heating system upgrades.
