Technical Assessments for SEAI Heat Pump Grants
The building energy Technical Advisor is a new role that was created in 2018 by SEAI.
SEAI is striving to achieve the goal of upgrading suitable existing dwellings with high-efficiency heat pump technologies, suitable thermal insulation, and PV and solar panels. Heat pumps combined with PV/Solar panels will replace the traditional fossil fuel-burning oil or gas boilers and therefore help to reduce carbon emissions. Generous grants are now available for the installation of heat pumps, house wall insulation (internal or external), and PV/solar panels.
The assessment carried out by our energy consultants will determine if insulation to the fabric of the building may need to be upgraded.
This will depend on a technical assessment and associated calculations carried out by the Technical Advisor. The fabric must meet a Heat Loss Indicator value (HLI), in order for the grant application to proceed. The Technical Advisor will provide a report on the works which may be required to meet the value as well as guidance on the associated grants available for the upgrades. Most importantly you will receive the benefit of having an experienced energy professional to guide you through the choices associated with the upgrade to your home.
