What is an Electric Ireland Superhomes Retrofit?

A whole house energy retrofit involves carrying out a number of energy upgrade measures in one installation to achieve a warmer, more comfortable, energy efficient home resulting in a BER rating of between B2 and A1. Electric Ireland Superhomes’ retrofit philosophy is based on the view that a home is an interrelated and interdependent energy system. An Electric Ireland Superhomes home energy upgrade looks at the overall effect of a combination of energy measures, which are designed in such a way that they work together successfully. The retrofit is done once, and it is done right and starts with a rigorous assessment of your home’s current energy performance. Once this is established, they can begin the process of designing your Superhome based on the following interrelated factors:

  • Renewable energy heat pump and heating system design
  • Insulation
  • Airtightness
  • Ventilation
  • Solar panels
