The retrofit dilemma: what does it cost to make your home energy efficient?

Incentives to make your home more energy efficient have never seemed greater — and saving the planet is just one of them. A survey published this week showed higher energy ratings can raise a property’s value by as much as €60,000. And as gas and electricity prices soar, any measure that reduces bills is welcome. There is one big catch, though, and that’s the upfront cost of a deep retrofit.

usan Andrews, an expert at the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), estimates the cost of a comprehensive home energy upgrade at between €50,000 and €70,000, with a grant reducing this by €27,000. This is based on an average semi-detached home built in the 1980s with about 100sqm of floor space and an E2 energy rating.
