West Coast Insulation is recommending homeowners take advantage of the new grant scheme which is now the highest level it has ever been at €1,000.
Homeowners can contact the Galway company for a free quotation for cavity wall and attic insulation. The grant will cover a large percentage of the costs of the work and when ordering with West Coast Insulation, the grant comes straight off the price. Furthermore West Coast Insulation, which has been in business since 2009, will look after all applications forms to make the process as simple as possible for homeowners.
The increase in grant from €650, which was the previous grant amount, to €1,000 is only available to customers of Kingspan for whom West Coast Insulation is an official installer. The new package delivered by West Coast Insulation and suppliers Kingspan EcoBead, makes insulating a home more attractive than ever.
When insulating a house, the company injects ecobead platinum bonded bead in the cavity walls even when there is existing aerobord insulation. This significantly improves the heat retention and also fills in any gaps in the older insulation. The company keeps the injection holes closer together to ensure the walls are filled 100 per cent, and that the bead is packed as tightly as possible.
The company installs Knauf Rolled insulation in the attics, and John Folan of West Coast Insulation says most attics have some existing fibreglass insulation at around 100-150mm depth.
"The problem with fibreglass is that it shrinks over time and needs to be replaced. We install Knuaf insulation to more than 300mm, giving the best u-values possible. We also fit the insulating jackets and lids around the tanks, fit the heavy duty 19mm lagging on the pipes, and insulate and draught proof the attics doors to eliminate draughts.”
West Coast Insulation is a family-run business, working all across Galway and Mayo since 2009.
"All products and work are fully guaranteed and we always deliver the highest quality service and workmanship. We ensure both walls and attics are insulated to the highest standards and the house is left clean and tidy after works are complete."
