If you want to make your home more energy efficient, you can get cashback
The Green Deal cashback scheme can give you money off insulation, double glazing or a new boiler
If you want to make your home more energy efficient, you could qualify for a government cashback. The Green Deal cashback (or Green Homes cashback, if you live in Scotland) offers cashback on the costs of getting insulation, a new condensing boiler, double glazing or draught proofing, with up to around £1,000 on offer, depending on what you decide to buy. How does it work and who qualifies for it?
You can make energy-saving improvements to your home without having to pay all the costs upfront through the Green Deal
The government says it wants to make it easier for people to improve the energy efficiency of their homes. The much hyped Green Deal is a way to get energy efficient measures installed and to pay for them through the savings that you’re expected to make on your energy bills. Although the principle is a good one, in practice it does have some problems.
It’s energy saving week…how can you cut your bills?
With energy prices rising and winter on its way, how can you use energy more efficiently?
I’m not a massive fan of ‘themed’ weeks but I was quite interested in some of the tips produced by the Energy Saving Trust as part of energy saving week. I think many of us know the obvious things (like turning down the thermostat by one degree etc) but it’s still good to be reminded of the different ways you can save.
