solid wall insulation, boiler replacement...

What energy saving measures apply to Green Deal?

• Solid Wall Insulation
• Boiler replacement
• Double/ secondary glazing
• Cavity Wall Insulation
• Warm Air unit replacement
• Storage heater replacement

What is the "Golden Rule"?

The Green Deal Golden Rule states that the energy savings a property makes in a 25 year period must be equal to or more than the cost of having the changes in the first place. It is possible to choose a shorter time period, but the return on investment must be paid for within that time.

Many measures offer a return on investment within a much shorter time frame, and therefore are financially lucrative with or without Green Deal Finance.
