SEAI Insulation Grants

Who can apply?

All homeowners, including private landlords, whose homes were built and occupied before 2011 can apply. This is defined as the date your electricity metre was installed. Grant funding can only be issued once per property for each type of works. This means that any property which previously availed of wall insulation via the Better Energy Homes scheme, or any other government scheme, cannot receive additional support for further wall insulation works

  • your home achieves a minimum B2 BER rating

or

  • your heating system and attic insulation comply with the Building Regulation standards If you are applying for an SEAI grant for External or Internal Wall Insulation you are required to comply with these Building Regulations as a condition of your grant payment.
Planning considerations

In some cases external insulation may require planning permission. For example with protected structures, in architectural conservation areas or where the works result in an alteration to the front profile of the property. Please check with your registered contractor or local planning authority.

Planning permission is not required for internal or cavity insulation.
