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.
What is the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund?
Householders can access the following:
• Cash back for installing solid wall insulation;
• Up to £1000.00 for installing two measures from an approved list; and/ or
• Up to £100.00 refunded from their Green Deal Assessment.
Can I switch energy suppliers if I take Green Deal?You can still switch energy suppliers as all of the larger providers (British Gas, EDF, EOn, NPower, Scottish Power and SSE) are currently part of the scheme.
