SuperHomes Ireland enables homeowners to retrofit their homes to ‘A’ BER standard. Funding is available of up to 50%.
A SuperHome is an energy efficient home that has implemented all the cost effective and sensible energy measures. These include insulation, air tightness and advanced ventilation. Heat and hot water are provided by renewable energy technologies such as solar photovoltaic panels and heat pumps.
By the end of 2018 SuperHomes will have retrofitted over 150 houses to a near A3 Building Energy Rating (BER). The average net investment by homeowners in 2017 was €33,000. As well as average financial savings of €1000 – €1500 per annum on oil, homeowners benefit from living in a comfortable, healthier house with better air quality.
The initiative is managed by Tipperary Energy Agency. For more information have a look at the following case studies (English):
