Guaranteed Irish

At Homevalue, our Irishness is just as important to us as it is to our customers across the country.

For us, Irishness extends beyond where we're born, and instead, should be viewed as where we contribute and add real value. This is more important now than ever before as our stores and local teams work to support their respective communities as best that they can during these difficult times.

Our teams up and down the country deserve a huge amount of credit for the service they have provided to their communities over the last year in what were unprecedent circumstances, showing what can only be described as Irish spirit.

At Homevalue, our sense of commitment to the community is what Irishness is all about and it is a true testament to our heritage and our determination to prevail.

These unique values brought on by community spirit should be celebrated and championed as part of the fabric of being Irish, and we in Homevalue are determined to play our part.

If you are not familiar with the Big G, Guaranteed Irish are a not-for-profit business membership organisation representing businesses in Ireland since 1974.

Guaranteed Irish is the original symbol of provenance in business in Ireland and is awarded to businesses which provide quality jobs, support local communities, and are committed to Irish provenance.

Guaranteed Irish is a stamp of approval that consumers look for when choosing products and services, and it has become an essential part of the Irish business landscape.

All About Retrofitting

By the end of last year, close to 48,000 homes were upgraded with grant supports from SEAI following thelaunch of the SEAI National Housing Retrofit Scheme in February 2022. Studies show that improving your home’s Building Energy Requirement (BER) adds value to your property and that advancing by a single level, from C2 to C1, for example, equates to a 1% increase in property value.

Even with the increased Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) grants to cushion the cost, the decision to retrofit the house you have been living in for years is a significant undertaking.

A deep retrofit encompasses everything from attic and wall insulation; new windows and doors; conversion of heating system from gas/ oil to a heat pump; advanced ventilation and photovoltaic (PV) solar panels for electricity generation. It places substantial demand on homeowners who must decide whether they can afford both the financial outlay and the domestic upheaval of a deep retrofit. It is hugely inconvenient to have to vacate your home for four to eight weeks while the project is being undertaken. However, increasing numbers of people living in damp, cold homes which are expensive to run, are willing to accept temporary hardship in return for a warm, comfortable, energy-efficient home that is healthier and significantly cheaper to run.

Insulation is the first and most important step of the retrofitting process. Regardless of the insulation type you choose; research shows that you will experience an improvement in comfort and heat loss will reduce significantly
