SEAI Technical Advisors –
we’re here to help!

If you are applying for a heat pump system grant under the Better Energy Homes programmer, you must first engage an SEAI registered Technical Advisor to carry out a technical assessment of your home.

BM Energy Consultants are experienced SEAI Technical Advisors .

Why get a technical assessment carried out?

One of the requirements for a dwelling to qualify for a grant for heat pump systems is that the energy performance of the dwelling fabric is suitable for heat pump system installation. This is to ensure the heat pump system performs well and the dwelling’s electricity bills are not too high. This can be achieved by insulating the dwelling and/or by upgrading the windows. SEAI aims for installed heat pump systems to be as efficient and effective as is feasible.

To make this possible, an independent SEAI Registered Technical Advisor must be engaged by the homeowner as part of the application process. BM Energy Consultants are SEAI registered Technical Advisors and will help guide the homeowner on the energy performance of the dwelling, particularly on the suitability of the dwelling for a heat pump system based on the dwelling’s heat loss. We will also provide the homeowner with independent guidance on measures necessary to ensure that the dwelling fabric heat loss is lowered to an acceptable level for a heat pump system to perform effectively and efficiently. The required heat loss level is expressed as a Heat Loss Indicator of 2 Watts/Kelvin/m2 .

** It is the responsibility of the homeowner to apply for and
