Process

The aim of Electric Ireland Superhomes is to provide the best support possible to design and complete your whole house retrofit. Our team of Advisors, Retrofit Engineers and leading retrofit contractors are part of our ‘One Stop Shop’ approach to guide you through the entire process to deliver a warm, comfortable and healthy low-carbon home.

We look after all the key stages of your home retrofit, from initial design the whole way through to the payment of SEAI grant funding. We engage leading contractors and experienced retrofit specialists to deliver the best quality retrofit in Ireland and, at the end of the process, the best home possible.

Step 1

We schedule an initial consultation with our Retrofit Advisor, after which you’ll have a clearer idea about what measures, costs, grants and timelines are involved in your project.

Step 2

The Home Survey stage helps us to put together a much more detailed profile of your home and to design your retrofit. At this stage, the Electric Ireland Superhomes Engineer will need access to your home for about 2-3 hours. While you do not have to be there, the survey is a good opportunity to meet our Retrofit Engineer and give your first-hand account of the house. 

Step 3

Your retrofit engineer will start work on designing a solution to meet Electric Ireland Superhomes standards.

Step 4

We will issue the works to tender to one of our Approved Contractors OR apply a market rate estimate of costs, whichever is applicable.

Step 5

Your Energy Report is emailed to you, and we arrange an Online Consultation to go through the report in detail. If you are satisfied with the recommendations in the Energy Report, we draw up a contract for the retrofit and agree a start date with you.

Step 6

Your Electric Ireland Superhomes retrofit begins.

Step 7

Your Electric Ireland Superhomes engineer carries out a check on works in progress.

Step 8

Electric Ireland Superhomes carries out a final inspection on the completed retrofit. There may also be an inspection by SEAI which will also be attended by your Electric Ireland Superhomes Engineer. A final BER is carried out by an Independent Assessor confirming your new BER rating.

Step 9

Once all snags are complete, your Electric Ireland Superhomes Engineer will organise a one-to-one tutorial to demonstrate how the system works. You will also receive the detailed Homeowner Manual, explaining everything you need to know about running and maintaining your new energy system.

Step 10

Electric Ireland Superhomes draws down grant funding from SEAI on your behalf.
