From Emissions to Savings: How Renewable Ready Gas Boilers Can Transform Your Home


Looking to upgrade your home energy rating? Achieve a B1 or more by using a mixed technology approach by installing a renewable ready gas boiler with Calor Ireland.

Switching to a renewable ready gas boiler allows homes and businesses to significantly reduce their emissions, without a deep retrofit of the property, removing the cost barriers to warmer and more energy-efficient properties.

Renewable ready gas boilers offer a long-term, cost-effective pathway to decarbonisation, through the gradual introduction of renewable LPG, including BioLPG and rDME, into the fuel mix over time. This will allow off-grid homes and businesses to significantly reduce carbon footprint, without expensive deep retrofitting or significant changes to the property’s heating system.

A switch to a renewable ready gas boiler, can be combined with existing individual SEAI energy upgrade grants, to support additional energy efficiency work on homes as required. This could include:

  • Upgrading the home’s heating controls, wall and attic insulation and windows.
  • Installation of solar panels.

A combination of these measures can deliver an uplift on the BER rating of a home, at a much lower cost compared to a full deep retrofit for heat pump installation.

These upgrades can be carried out in stages, allowing households to manage the cost over time and avoid the extra hassle of relocating when renovations and retrofitting is taking place which is required with heat pump installation.
