A new government survey found employees could save €1,400 euro a year by working from home instead of in the office.
The study, which was conducted by the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment, found increases in monthly heating and electricity costs would likely be outweighed by the money saved not commuting to work.
According to these figures workers would send on average €109 more annually on heating and electricity combined, if they worked from home full time
But in doing so, you'd eliminate €413 spent commuting via car - leaving you with a saving of €304.
Kathy McKenna from Grow Remote saved hundreds when she no longer had to live in the capital for work:
"I had driven to work, and it was a 45-minute commute each day. And my husband had been commuting a very long distance on the Luas every day, which added up to around €300 a month."
It also found people could save up to €1,400 - if they worked the hours they used to use for commuting.
But it did not that 75% of people currently engaged in home duties - including caring - would consider taking up a job if it could's be done remotely
Tánaiste Leo Varadkar says he wants to bring those people into the workforce:
The study also found that remote work can boost productivity by as much as 22%.
