Sustainable Energy Ireland have a great little gadget that I picked up recently at the Ideal Homes Show at the RDS in Dublin, its about the size to a post card and it reads the tempreature in your home.

The idea being if its too hot then reduce the temperature, if its too cold have your home assessed to have it insulated or have your heating system upgraded.  SEI can help on that front also with grants available for some of these types of work to be carried out.  For further information check out the site at this link

Solar Panels

Why not have solar panels fitted to both help reduce the cost of energy and to heat your water.  There are a vast number of styles and types of panel on the market at the moment and most are suitable for the Sustainable Energy Ireland grants. Further details on grants available can be found here. 

Before renovating an old house check out the grants which are available, as in most cases when having solar panels fitted a new water tank/cylinder is required or comes as part of the equipment, so before you fit a new water tank you could save yourself time and effort and find a grant covers all or some of the labour costs.
