Spring is in the Air
As we welcome the imminent arrival of Spring, it is a great time to get into new habits – including ways of being more energy efficient and living more sustainability. But it can be hard to know where to start!
We have put together a few energy-saving suggestions to help cut down on our energy consumption, and knock a few euro off our bills, which we will be posting over the coming weeks. As we all know, the price of electricity and gas has steadily increased, and so saving what we can, where we can, and when we can, will reduce the impact of rising energy prices. We have listed a few websites which you may find useful.
Energy Saving Advice and Tips.
The BER Ireland site is a great resource with lots of really helpful suggestions to save energy, electricity, and with very useful tips on heating and insulation, including some very cost effective measures. It also has motoring and renewable tips too.
The SEAI website includes information about all things sustainable energy wise, ranging from information on grants to improve the energy rating of your home to energy saving advice, as well as information about their community energy programme.
The SEAI has a useful guide to Home insulation which includes information about the different types of attic insulation.
Here you can find information about the other home insulation grants that are available from the SEAI.
The SEAI have also produced a Keeping Well and Warm booklet.
Heating Control Upgrades
A booklet from the SEAI is available, explaining what Heating Controls are, how they work, as well as information about picking a registered contractor, as well as links to information about the grants.
Information on how to apply for the €700 grant for Heating Control Upgrades from the SEAI for heating is available on this webpage.
