Why Your Home Needs Heating Controls

The energy used by Irish households is staggering. As much as 1/4 of Ireland’s energy use is created from the residential sector.

The findings which come from an SEAI report has also found that since 2014 the residential sector has begun to see a rise in carbon emissions from Irish homes.

Oil Heating still remains at the top when it comes to home heating methods. This type of heating accounts “for 37% of all final energy used in the residential sector in 2016”.

Any increase in, or failure to decrease, energy use is having serious consequences for our planet and our society. The effects of high energy use includes increased carbon footprint, increased energy costs and a reduction in energy supply.

Houses built pre-2006 are eligible for an SEAI grant which covers the costs of implementing heating controls in your home. Smartzone are one of the only companies in Ireland that provide heating controls with a smart security bundle at no extra cost. This means that we charge only for the security package at €199 installation fee and don’t charge for heating controls. The reason we do this is because we can claim the SEAI grant on your behalf meaning you can relax and leave all the hefty paperwork to us.
