The Benefits of Upgrading your Home

Retrofitting your home and carrying out energy upgrades can offer several benefits, both in terms of cost savings and environmental impact.

Here are some key advantages:

Energy Efficiency

Reduced Energy Consumption: Upgrading insulation, windows, doors, and ventilation systems can significantly improve the energy efficiency of your home, leading to lower energy consumption.

Lower Utility Bills: Increased energy efficiency often results in lower monthly utility bills, saving you money in the long run.

Financial Savings

Grants and Incentives: Grants are available through the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland making the upfront costs more manageable.

Green mortgage rates: Energy efficient homes can avail of discounted Green Mortgage rates.

Increased Property Value

Market Appeal: Energy-efficient homes are increasingly attractive to homebuyers. Retrofitting can enhance your property’s market value and make it more appealing to buyers eager to keep running costs low.

Comfort and Health

Improved Comfort: Upgrades, such as better insulation and high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, can lead to more comfortable indoor temperatures year-round.

Indoor Air Quality: Some upgrades, like installing energy-efficient windows and ventilation systems, can contribute to better indoor air quality, which is particularly advantageous for individuals with respiratory illnesses.

Environmental Impact

Reduced Carbon Footprint: Energy-efficient homes have a lower carbon footprint, contributing to environmental sustainability and the fight against climate change.

Local Economic Impact

Job creation: EcoVision engages the services of local contractors as much as possible, which contributes to job creation and economic growth in our member community and wider geographic areas.. 

Reducing imports: A lower demand for fossil fuels reduces the amount of money leaving Ireland and supports local spending.
