Remember the cold of last winter?
Well I decided with all the fantastic grants available for home energy and insulation that I would be well prepared this year. I know I am getting off the subject of kitchens and bedrooms but there is no harm.
So I just wanted to share with you all that last week we had our home insulated and it cost us only €50. I couldn’t believe it when we got the quote and the chap told us that we would only have to put €50 to it. The cost of the job was €700 and the grant was €650. They pumped the cavity walls with beads and insulated the attic with an extra 6 inches of rockwool.
Typically I think the job would have come to around €1,000 but because we live in a terraced house we only had to get the front and back walls pumped. All the same, it’s still fantastic value. We can’t believe the difference it has made. The real test will be in the depths of Winter but one or two nights have been cold recently and we can notice that the house is taking no time to heat up and when it does, the house retains the heat unbelievably well.
I strongly recommend it to anyone.
