BE A ‘GOOD CON­SUMER’

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - PERSONAL FINANCE -

Younger peo­ple gen­er­ally make more of a fuss about ‘sav­ing the planet’ but many older folk have a ‘waste-not want not’ men­tal­ity – and un­like young­sters, they do turn off the im­mer­sion!

An­other way to knock 10% off bills is turn­ing your heat­ing down by just one de­gree. There are also plenty of grants worth up to €1,100 for in­su­la­tion, so­lar pan­els, heat­ing con­trols, and heat pumps,

And pen­sion­ers may qual­ify for The Bet­ter En­ergy Warmer Homes Scheme which will help pay for at­tic and wall in­su­la­tion, draught-proof­ing, lag­ging jack­ets and low-en­ergy light bulbs.

For more in­for­ma­tion call 1850 927000, email info@bet­teren­er­gy­homes.ie, or check out the SEAI web­site www.seai.ie.
