Record grant funding makes it easier than ever to insulate your home

With the cold winter weather now serving as a reminder of the importance of home insulation, West Coast Insulation is recommending homeowners take advantage of the current grant scheme which is the highest level it has ever been at €1,123.

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. John Folan of West Coast Insulation will look after the application forms, to make the process as simple as possible for homeowners.

The increase in grant from €650 to €1,123 is available to customers of Kingspan, for which West Coast Insulation is an official agent. The new package delivered by West Coast Insulation and suppliers Kingspan EcoBead makes insulating homes 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 U-values and heat retention and also fills in any gaps in the older insulation. The team keep 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 mineral wool or Rockwool pumped insulation in the attics. John Folan of West Coast Insulation said: “Most attics have some existing fibreglass insulation at around 100 to 150mm depth. The problem with fibreglass is that it shrinks over time and needs to be replaced. We install Knauf or Rockwool attic insulation to 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 the attic door.”
