Heating and Plumbing
There are a number of aspects to making your home more energy efficient and over the past number of years the insulation of cavity walls and attics has been to the fore in everyones mind. However, the heating system in your home plays a major part in your consumption of energy be it oil or gas. Most homes have out dated boiler systems which can be as low as 60% efficient, which is frightening when you consider that this effectively means that 40cent of every euro you spend on oil or gas is lost!!!
Envirobead only reccommend boilers that have an efficiency of 91% or higher meaning you save up to 30% by upgrading to a high condensing boiler. It is also worth considering installing heating controls if you do not have them already. By installing heating controls you will be able to heat to the rooms you want to so as not to waste fuel heating unused rooms. Further more Thermostatically controlled Radiator Valves can be used to control the temperature you want for each room. These modifications to your heating system will save you hundreds of euro per annum and combined with your insulation upgrades make your home less expensive to heat, but most importantly make it more comfortable to live in during those long, cold winters nights.
There are grants available for boiler and heating controls upgrades through the SEAI's Better Energy Homes Scheme so don't waste anymore time contact Envirobead for a quotation. We will apply for the grant for you and also you don't have to wait for the grant, we will wait for it instead!
