SuperHomes 2018 now open for applications
As we rapidly approach the fourth year of Tipperary Energy Agency’s SuperHomes project, we are delighted to announce that we are accepting applications for 2018.
We are now offering homeowners the opportunity to retrofit their house to an A3 Building Energy Rating standard (BER) with up to 50% funded assistance.
A SuperHome is a low energy home that has implemented cost effective and sensible energy measures. The aim of the scheme is to move the homeowner away from fossil fuel heating systems by replacing these with renewable energy technologies such as a heat pump and solar photovoltaic panels. By achieving the correct balance of air-tightness and ventilation, the interior air becomes cleaner and fresher, whilst maintaining even temperatures and eliminating drafts. As a consequence, it improves the comfort levels and health of the occupants.
The average net investment by the homeowner in the pilot project was €18,000. As well as average financial savings of between €1000 and €1500 per annum on oil, homeowners also benefit hugely by living in a more comfortable healthier house with better air quality.
Recruitment is now open for SuperHomes 2018. For more information and to apply, visit www.superhomes.ie
