How long would it take Insulate both my Walls & Attic? 

A typical house can be completed in one working day. 

Can I get the grant for just insulating my Attic? 

No. The minimum grant application amount is €400, consequently you would need to combine at least one other measure to be able to avail of the Grant, and the most common option is to have both your Walls and Attic Insulated.

Yes. If at the end of the insulation work on your home all the exposed walls are insulated you are eligible for a grant under the Better Energy Homes Scheme.

Hollow Block is not eligible for Cavity Fill Insulation, however you do have the option to dry-line the internal walls or consider external insulation and both these measures have grants available. 

Is there a limit to the amount of measures that I can apply for on the Better Energy Homes scheme or can I apply for all of them? 

There is no limit - You may apply for them all.
