The Green Deal offers a way for property owners throughout the UK to the increase the energy efficiency of their home without having to fork out for the costs all at once. Instead, homeowners pay for the energy saving features through the savings on their utility bills.
What Installations Can you Get From This Deal?
There are many ways to make your home a little more eco-friendly and pocket-friendly! You may feel a little daunted with regards to taking out a government loan for these deals, but the money that you will be saving in energy will more than make up for it! (And you will be doing your bit for the environment).
A lot of energy is lost through the lofts, faulty boilers and even windows and doors in homes across the UK and as part of the Green Deal. Homeowners can get all kinds of energy saving installations that includes anything from loft and cavity wall insulation all the way to boiler replacements.
How do I apply?
Unfortunately summer is nearly over, and before we know it, winter will be bringing cold weather and dark nights with it. With this in mind, now is the perfect time to do a little research and get involved with the Green Deal.
The first step is to get in touch with a local official Green Deal assessor who will carry out an inspection of your home. Once it has been established if you are eligible or not, you will be issued an Energy Performance Certificate that states the energy efficiency of your home, as well as a Green Deal plan. You can find your local Green Deal company using the governments search facility.
