**A Building Energy Rating (BER) is an integral part of all grant applications under the individual home energy upgrade grants (Better Energy Homes), whereby homeowners must undertake a BER on their home after insulation grant aided works have been completed. A homeowner is entitled to BER funding of €50 once per home. This funding will be applied to your insulation grant application automatically, provided you have never applied previously for BER funding. You will be informed during the online insulation grant application process if BER funding is available for your home or as part of your Letter of Grant Offer if you have applied through the post.

Please note the minimum insulation grant amount for the first application must be €700. A BER grant, where applicable, does not count towards the €700 minimum. In the instance where a Contractor is completing works within his own home then only the cost of materials will be deemed qualifying expenditure. Grants must be in place before any work can begin, once the measures are completed and the contractor has been paid in full by the homeowner, then the grant forms are then completed by the Contractor then the Ber Assessor (This is organised by the Homeowner after the works)

Who can avail of the insulation grant?
It is a National Scheme and therefore all homeowners of dwellings built before 2011 may apply. Landlords and owners of multiple properties can also apply, once they submit a separate application per property.

How much are the insulation grants?
Grants for the different insulation applications are fixed for each type of measure.

Who can do the work?
In accordance with the Schemes Terms and Conditions, all works must be completed by a Contractor from the SEAI's Registered list. Please Note: Ecowise Insulation's Contractor ID per the SEAI Registered List is 10080.

When can I get the work done?
Grant approval must be in place prior to any purchase of materials or the commencement of works is undertaken. Work already undertaken is not eligible for a grant.

What is the minimum insulation grant I can apply for?
When a homeowner is making their first application the grant amount must be for €700 or greater. Therefore under the terms of the scheme on the first application the homeowner wishing to apply for the roof insulation grant for example must undertake at least one other application from the list to be eligible for the grant.
