About

B1 Or Better

B1 or better is a one-stop-shop for your home energy retrofit. We design and install the complete energy upgrade to bring the efficiency of your home up to maximize the benefits to the homeowner. Our primary goal is to look at the most cost effective ways of upgrading the house. We look at the most cost effective ways which give the maximum end of year savings using items that are applicable to grants and energy credits. There are grants up to €10,000 and energy credits up to €2000.

We look after all the stages of the retrofit from getting the best mortgages with green mortgage rates to the application of grants from SEAI. We work as team of BER assessors, Mortgage brokers, heating installers, Ventilation installers, Solar panel installers, insulation installers and energy efficient stove installers, All our team are experienced retrofit specialists that will offer you the best quality retrofit in Ireland.

Our Aim

Our Aim is to assist the home owners with up grading their homes to a higher BER rating so that their homes become more comfortable, cleaner, warmer and more efficient homes, We insure the homeowner avails of grants, energy credits and the best green mortgages on offer, All these incentives will put more money in the homeowners pockets.

Home Owner Incentives

Grants from Seai

See below some of the grants available for home energy upgrades by SEAI https://www.seai.ie/grants/home-energy-grants/

We will assist with all items relating to the grant and insure the homeowner has everything in place for the payment of grants.

Credits in your Electricity through Electric Ireland

Electric Ireland give credits to the homeowners bill from €500 to €2000 on your electricity as a result of retrofitting your home, There are different credits for different installations. We will apply for all these credits for the homeowner.

Existing heating system

Your existing heating system is still worth money for people that want to do an upgrade on a budget, heating systems can be sold as a package to include, Oil boiler, Oil tank, Radiators, Copper Cylinder, Electric showers, which in most cases are not required after the energy upgrade.

Green rate mortgages

Some of the Banks we work with offer a reduced rate on your mortgage if you increase the BER rating of your home, Depending on the amount of retrofit works to be complete some of our clients get a top up on their mortgage to complete the retrofit works, In some cases our clients mortgage payment has been reduced even though they have increased the value of the mortgage, This is due due to their interest rate dropping because of the increase in their BER rating.

Carbon Taxes

We have to keep our energy usage to the minimum and implement renewable energy's or the Irish government will face fines. Experts say there is no doubt that homeowners will face carbon taxes to their homes if the energy rating of their home is not of a certain standard, By upgrading your home you are future proofing it to insure you wont be taxed in the future.
