Not so hot on sustainable heating scheme


Sir, – Kevin McPartland (Letters, May 21st) mentions the grants available to upgrade one’s home heating available from the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and the difficulties associated with heat pumps.

A further point concerning the SEAI grants is that one must use one of the approved registered contractors listed on their website.

I contacted all of the contractors listed for Co Leitrim by phone and email.

Not one of them replied. – Yours, etc,



Carrick on Shannon,

Co Leitrim.
