Better Energy Home Grants Available

Customers can sometimes know more then we do when it comes to new innovations, grants, products etc as too often we are caught up with the actual job at hand or quoting for new business. Thus we sometimes end up catching up to ensure they are going in the right direction to satisfy their needs.  Well at the weekend gone by a long time customer of ours telephoned about grants, what is available & can they avail of same for their home…

We do a lot of grant aided work as we are SEAI certified, but to answer our clients question to be honest I didn’t have all the information there & then..  Why because too often the clients we deal with have the forms etc printed off, research done, work planned & then they contact us.  Thus not to let our customer down, I swung into action & today I am writing to let others know that there is a great range of government grants available & the process is far from arduous.

The grants range from insulation to heating system upgrades to BER rating assessment. The SEAI website has a large amount of information pertaining to the grants & the forms are also there to download.  The minimum grant application is €400 & the cash grants are a set value based on 30% of average cost of works.  The link to their website is & if you click on that it will bring you to the relevant page that has all the grant details, forms etc etc.

So now rather then carrying around a portfolio of information, we have added the link & information to our website & our customers can access them there & then.  Thus I hope our latest blog on grants is helpful to you & if you need upgrade work done or alternatively you are thinking about a new extension, why not give;

Water Meters, Water Saving Devices

A hot topic today & all this year is water saving, water conservation, water meters, etc, etc… Yes we will now have to pay for water from 2015 & there is very little we can do but adapt to water metering…. Thus water saving is a must if you want to keep the cost at a minimum….

We at Derek Scally Plumbing specialise in water supply & water saving services.  We are working with Irish Water on a emergency supply contract service basis & are very aware of the latest products to help you the home owner save water metering costs from the beginning of this new phase of charges.

Take for example a great idea which was highlighted on Dragons Den a number of months ago.. The Tap Lock, a simple solution, but very effective.  Those days when you are at work, you don’t know who is accessing your water supply.  Well this will not stop the bill coming in from the water metering company Irish Water, thus this simple tap lock device does the job. We love the idea & would recommend any home owner to invest in one..

Another water meter saving device is the installation of an underground water reclaiming tank that can then be used to supply your toilets, outdoor taps etc.  We have installed numerous in the last few months & involve a system of an underground water tank, piping run off from your rainwater down pipes & a pump to send the water from the tank back to the required outlets… Simple yet a very effective way of recycling rain water & saving greatly on the water meter charges…

Recently we have seen a surge in customer enquiries about surveying their business & home water supply network to ensure no leaks etc.  We are delighted to provide such a service as it helps identify any leaks now & to make suggestions where other savings can be made before the 2015 water meter charge introduction.  Our specialised team will happily survey your premises & ensure there are no leaks, replace & fix any issues to ensure you are getting the best value for money when the water metering comes in next January.

To sum up our latest blog, yes the water metering is coming in & a commodity we took for granted is to become a considerable cost, a product we have to pay for so why not let the professionals help you, just send us an email/enquiry & one of our team will be with you shortly, that’s Derek Scally Plumbing for all your water saving needs…..
