Rising fuel costs – and warnings that fuel rationing could be on the cards – have prompted many to consider retrofitting their home. However, as the bill for a deep retrofit of a three-bedroom home could come to between €60,000 and €70,000 or more, the cost of such an energy upgrade can be prohibitive.

ew State grants – available through the one-stop shop scheme of the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) – could halve the cost of a deep retrofit. Even after the grants, a homeowner could still face a bill of almost €30,000 or more for a full retrofit though.
