Costs & Fees

The cost of a whole house retrofit depends on many factors, including the size and age of the house, the wall type, and what measures have already been completed. Costs range from €25,000 for a typical sized house built since 2000 to €70,000 or more for older, larger homes requiring the full range of measures. The average cost of an Electric Ireland Superhomes retrofit is €56,000 gross, or €37,000 net of grants. It’s a significant investment so an SEAI grant of up to 35% is available to support you to do this. We can supply you with a cost estimate for your retrofit as part of our Initial Consultation.

Electric Ireland Superhomes fees

The Electric Ireland Superhomes Energy Report details your comprehensive retrofit plan, including project costs and grant funding available. The process begins with a rigorous Home Energy Survey by one of our Retrofit Engineers to determine the ‘baseline’ performance of your home. The next step is to design your retrofit solution using advanced DEAP analysis to outline the most cost-effective steps to reach Electric Ireland Superhomes standard. At this point we engage an approved contractor to visit your home and provide us with a price for the proposed works, which we then assess on a value-for-money basis on your behalf (alternatively we may apply a market rate estimate). The Energy Report details this price net of grants available.

The cost of an Electric Ireland Superhomes Energy Report is €475 (a surcharge will apply for homes above 240sqm or where an extension is planned). This fee includes a video call with an Electric Ireland Superhomes advisor to go through the Energy Report in detail.

At this stage, if you are happy to proceed to works, further professional fees of between €950 and €2,300 will apply, depending on the scale of the project.
