Getting better all the Time.
Well that definitely seems to be the case when it comes to Home Improvement Grants from SEAI
From April 2018, homeowners can qualify for a €3,500 grant to install a heat pump.
Grants for heating control upgrades and external wall insulation have also been increased from January of this year.
External wall insulation upgrades will qualify for 33 per cent more funding. Details of the changes are in the table below.
