We picked AEI because they embrace the new technology we were interested in. We got a new Vokera condensing boiler, Honeywell zone controls and a Kingspan solar system. They had the expertise to handle the entire project and install all the systems at the same time. Their engineers are skilful, efficient and had good attention to detail. They integrated the different systems and we saw immediate savings in both our gas and electricity costs. Great project management and we appreciated how they gave us the systems we asked for, while other companies were only interested in supplying more basic systems that we didn’t want.

Garreth Deegan - Sandyford, Dublin 18

Excellent solar installation and has helped towards the low running costs of the house. Also helped us to achieve a “B2” on the Building Energy Rating (BER). Your installers were a pleasure to have in the house and even hoovered their work area at the end of the day.

Florence Connolly - Kilbride, Co Wicklow

As we love our home, we wanted to improve the comfort and reduce the bills. We decided to install a Heat Pump and also a Solar PV system. Thankfully AEI do both of these systems. We dealt with Darren and found him very informative and pleasant. The lads were very fast and efficient and AEI processed all our grants. Our bills are down and the comfort in our home is so much better since the installation. We highly recommend AEI for installing Solar PV and Heat Pumps.

Bridgit Brickland - Tullamore, Co Offaly

Thrilled with all the work your company carried out. The system works from spring through till early winter, with virtually no assistance from our oil boiler.

Alan Richards - Blessington, Co Wicklow

I was happy with the service I received. They fitted me in during extremely cold weather and replaced my boiler and updated system. Plumbers were very efficient. Possibly could have taken more time to show the new control panel. But the house is so much warmer and I would recommend. Company easy to work with thank you Steven and team.
