To arrange installation of a renewable energy heating system, you should contact a registered installer. It is very important that the installer you choose is qualified and registered with SEI (Sustainable Energy Ireland). Correct installation is imperative for any system to function efficiently.

Please see the checklist below. This will help you make a well informed decision.

For more information see the SEI Guide to Low Energy Passive Houses, Buyers Guide to Solar Water Heaters, A Buyers Guide to Heat Pumps.

Checklist

Installing a renewable energy heating system involves substantial investment. You should ensure that you are fully informed and proceed carefully to ensure that the system you choose meets your requirements and expectations.

Here is a basic checklist to help you achieve this.

  • Know what you want to achieve, i.e. space heating, water heating or both.
  • What are your expectations in terms of performance, cost savings etc.
  • What is your budget.
  • Don't forget to factor in the cost of altering your current heating system to work alongside an alternative system.
  • Research the products available on the internet. There are vast amounts of information available, so try to limit your searches to information that is relevant to Ireland.
  • Talk to the trade, visit a selection of heating and plumbing outlets and ask advice.
  • Visit our interesting reading section for some useful literature.
  • Choose only an SEI registered installer. In this way you can be sure that the installer has completed the necessary training and is FETAC certified.
  • Ensure that the products you choose are certified to meet EU standards.
  • Ask your installer to provide two or three reference homes they have installed similar systems.
  • Before you make any final decision, request the prospective installers to provide reference homes where they have installed a similar system. Contact the references supplied
    • ask if the job came in on time and on price
    • confirm that they are fully satisfied with the system
    • check that it is operating correctly
    • check that they are satisfied with the standard of workmanship of the installer
    • ask about their after sales service.
