House 2 Home Retrofit Ltd. has partnered with Retrofit Ireland to expand operations to the South and South East of Ireland. This is great news for customers who can now avail of nationwide home energy improvements from two of the country’s most trusted and experienced providers that are both 100% Irish owned.
House 2 Home was established in 2013 and has provided thousands of home energy upgrades to Irish customers since its inception. In fact together with Retrofit Ireland, which was established in 2008, the businesses are responsible for designing and completing over 4,300 home energy upgrades. The new partnership will allow them to run 25 concurrent jobs across Ireland. This is possible through a strong network of expert installers, assessors and contractors. The venture also will create an additional 30 full time positions throughout 2021, bringing the combined workforce to 130 by end of 2021
The partnership comes at an integral time for climate action in Ireland. The new National Home Retrofit Scheme is a core component of the government’s strategy to upgrade 500,000 homes to BER 2 or better by 2030. This is in addition to a host of grants available for shallow upgrade measures which the companies can also provide.
Mark Courtney, managing director of House 2 Home believes that the partnership will benefit homeowners greatly ; “We now have the ability to offer our one stop shop model on a national scale. We design, manage and complete deep retrofit projects from start to finish and even discount SEAI grants up front in many cases. It was always our ambition to provide this service to the country as a whole so we are very excited”.
Brendan Sidney, MD of Retrofit Ireland is equally optimistic about the venture. He said; “Retrofit Ireland and House 2 Home share a quality focused approach to home energy upgrades. The government’s climate action plan is a huge step forward towards a greener future for Ireland. We are delighted to be part of that”.
Homeowners who avail of grants for energy upgrades will benefit from a warmer, more comfortable home. They can also expect to see reductions in their energy bills and a decrease in their carbon footprint. House 2 Home and Retrofit Ireland are accepting applications now for deep retrofit projects in 2021 with funding of up to 40% discounted up front.
