Heat Pump Grants

By using energy from the air, water or ground to heat the building and / or hot water, heat pump systems are a great alternative to a regular fossil fuel system. There are grants available to install heat pump systems, and we're on hand to help.

What are heat pumps?

Heat pumps are a renewable source of heat. They harness the energy from the air, water or ground outside your home, heating the building and hot water. This heating system is an alternative to the regular fossil fuel system.

Heat pumps work better in homes that are very well insulated with double or triple glazed windows. This is to make sure your heat pump is working at the optimal level and your electricity bills will be low.

What are the benefits of a heat pump system?

  • More comfort
  • Cheaper heating bills
  • Reduce your carbon emissions
  • No need for fossil fuels
  • System designed around your home and usage
  • Wifi controlled
  • Using heating controls with heat pump reduces your energy usage by up to 15%

How are heat pumps installed?

A required heat loss level of 2 Watts/Kelvin/m2 is needed to qualify for a heat pump grant. We will conatact an SEAI registered Technical Advisor who will carry out a technical assessment of your home and advise you on what steps you need to take to make your home ready for a heat pump. The technical advisor will be able to talk you through the process and help you make an informed decision. A €200 grant is available for a technical advisor in conjunction with a heat pump grant.

There are three different types of heat pump system.

Air source: This is the most popular type of system which extracts heat from the outside air. This system does not require underground piping and is much quicker and easier to install in comparison to other heat pump systems

Ground source: These heat pumps use the heat from the earth through a series of pipes.

Water source: They use open water like lakes, rivers and streams as source of heat. This is collected through pipework and transfered to the heat pump.

How much heat pumps cost?

The cost of a heat pump solution depends on the type of heat pump system that is suitable for your property. There are grants available for these heat pump types:
 
Heat Pump Systems Grants Grant Value
Air to Water €3,500
Ground Source to Water €3,500
Exhaust Air to Water €3,500
