There are grants available to help homeowners who upgrade their old oil or gas boilers to high efficiency condensing boilers.

A scheme called Better Energy was launched in May 2011 as part of the new governments jobs initiative. The level of grants available were increased on March 10th 2015.

Under the scheme, Irish householders can get a grant of €700 Euro towards the cost of a new efficient oil or gas boiler. The grant is only available if you also qualify for a grant towards upgrading your central heating controls. The grant available for just an upgrade of heating controls is €600 .

Figures from OFTEC – say that condensing boilers could save as much as 18% in oil costs for heating and hot water. So if you currently spend €2000 a year on oil – you could save €360 a year. If these figures are correct you would recover the initial cost of the boiler and fitting in about 3.5 years. Grants are also available to help with insulation.

Grants towards new boilers and insulation are available from Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI). The Better Energy scheme is available to any owner of a dwelling built before 2006. The work must be carried out by a contractor from the SEAI’s registered list. More details below of the maximum amounts of grants available under the Better Energy Homes Scheme . Internal and external wall insulation grants are lower for semi detached or terraced homes. (Figures checked December 2015)
