Before contacting us, please follow this brief checklist:
3cea welcome the new Home Energy Upgrade Scheme launched by Minister Eamon Ryan yesterday, in what is the biggest home insulation and retrofit scheme ever offered in Ireland. This new scheme will provide grants of up to €25,000 to help households pay for deep energy retrofits and improve people’s homes for the better. Due to high call/message volumes, we are currently experiencing longer than normal response times, apologies for any delay in speaking with us. We will be sure to get back to you with an update as soon as we have more details on the new scheme. Further information on the scheme is available on the SEAI website.
Take a look at our Home Energy Upgrade Stories, as homeowners who participated in past schemes share their experience of undergoing a home energy upgrade project of their own.
Eddie’s home energy upgrade story was featured in The Sunday Times recently. The article shows Eddie’s home transformation and gives an insight into how he achieved such a major home improvement project.
A home energy upgrade project increases the energy rating in a home through the implementation of multiple measures. These measures can include upgrading of insulation, installing ventilation systems, replacement of windows or doors, and the use of renewable technologies such as solar panels and heat pumps. A combination of energy upgrade measures will provide a better energy rating for your home. The better the energy rating, the warmer and more comfortable your home will be.
Multiple energy upgrades are recommended (3-5 measures) to gain a warmer home. Some of these works typically include:
If you only require 1 or 2 energy upgrades, please visit the SEAI website for an alternative grant funding scheme.
3cea work in the South East region and surrounding areas.
If you are outside of this general area, please visit the SEAI website to find a project coordinator who operates near you.
Please note that the new Home Enregy Upgrade Grant scheme will open for applications soon. Due to high call/message volumes, we are currently experiencing longer than normal response times, apologies for any delay in speaking with us. We will be sure to get back to you with an update as soon as we have more details on the new scheme.
3 Counties Energy Agency has almost 10 years’ experience in coordinating energy upgrade projects for homeowners. That ensures a quality energy upgrade focus for our clients. We have helped complete energy upgrades on more than 2,500 houses as well as 500 deep retrofits since 2012.
We can project manage the entire process for clients – from your initial application right through to completion and sign-off.
Once on the One Stop Shop Journey, 3cea will ensure you get peace of mind and ultimately gain a comfortable and energy efficient home.
There will be a fixed fee for Stage 1 & 2, while there will be a % fee for Stage 3.
Stage 1 – €595 (ExVAT)
Stage 2 – €1,400 (ExVAT)
Stage 3 – 7.5% of total cost of works (range €1,500 – €4,500 depending on costs of works)
Homeowners can end the journey at any stage and will only be liable for fees for the stage they leave on.
As this is the first year of this scheme, costs can be difficult to determine. However, this scheme is similar to SEAI’s Deep Retrofit programme and the key findings of that scheme highlights similar costs associated with multiple home energy upgrades.
Please note that all homes require a pre- and post-works Building Energy Rating (BER) to be completed and published.
Fossil fuel boilers are not supported in any way by this scheme and their installation is actively discouraged by SEAI.
SEAI reserve the right to conduct 100% pre works inspection of all domestic sites in advance of any contract award.
Public bodies must comply with public procurement.
Every contact is important to us. Before we can help with your project, please not that we are currently experiencing longer than normal response times, apologies for any delay in speaking with us. We will be sure to get back to you with an update as soon as we have more details on the new scheme.
