These days, we hear more and more about energy-efficient living. No longer is it something expensive or experimental; it's simply common sense. Making your home more energy-efficient saves money and can help tackle climate change.
So, as part of the 2011 Energy Act, the UK government introduced The Green Deal. It's an initiative that aims to revolutionise Britain's homes by: -
providing simple and cost-effective energy-efficient improvements.
helping you manage the cost of any improvements required - they are paid for through your energy bills over time.
reducing energy waste to help you save money over the long-term.
making energy-efficiency a standard requirement for any home.
There are many ways to make a home more energy-efficient, made more affordable and achievable through The Green Deal. In fact at The Green Deal Advisory Centre we can help you with 45 different measures. These include: -
Loft insulation and cavity wall insulation.
External and internal solid wall insulation.
Double or triple glazing windows.
Home boiler upgrade.
Use of solar panels and wind turbines.
Think of it this way. Just as all cars needs to have an MOT, in the future all homes should have a certificate stating that it complies with the minimum energy-efficiency requirements. And that's what The Green Deal is aiming to achieve.
