Fuel Cost Comparison Sheets
SEAI's Fuel Cost Comparison sheets are designed to allow you to make reasonable comparisons between the cost performance of various fuels used for space heating in the home.
For clarity and consistency, these tables compare heating costs on a common base of cost per useful unit of heat output to a room or space (cent per kilowatt hour or c/kWh).
You can find the current Fuel Cost Comparison Sheet for Domestic heating here : Link to Fuel Costs page
The annual cost of heating a building depends on:
- Fuel price
- Fuel energy content
- Temperature levels maintained
- Duration of heating
- Weather conditions
- Levels of insulation and draught sealing
- Seasonal efficiency of the heating system.
