Increased grants available for home insulation

With the summer months behind us and the cooler months well upon us, Galway company West Coast Insulation are recommending homeowners take advantage of the current grant scheme. The scheme is now the highest level it has ever been at €1123. Homeowners can contact John Folan from West Coast Insulation for a free quotation for cavity wall and attic insulation. The grant will cover a large percentage of the costs of the work and the grant comes straight off the price when ordering with West Coast Insulation. Furthermore, West Coast Insulation will look after the applications forms to make the process as simple as possible for homeowners.

The increase in grant from €650 which is the normal grant amount, to €1123 is available to customers of Kingspan who West Coast Insulation are official agents for. The current package delivered by West Coast Insulation and suppliers Kingspan EcoBead makes insulation homes more attractive than ever.

When insulating a house, the company inject 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. They keep the injection holes closer together to ensure the walls are filled 100% and that the bead is packed as tightly as possible.

The company install Knauf Rolled mineral wool or Rockwool pumped insulation in the attics. John Folan went on to say “most attics have some existing fibreglass insulation at around 100 -150mm depth. The problem with fibreglass is that it shrinks over time and need 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”.
