DECC urges home owners to use cash from the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is urging households and home owners to act now in order to make their homes more energy efficient and get instant money back for the improvements via the Government’s Green Deal Home Improvement Fund.
The fund has already issued £25 million in its first four weeks, with an estimate 4405 households in England and Wales already taking advantage of the new scheme that makes up to £7600 available for energy saving measures such as solid wall insulation, new heating systems or double glazing.
The Green Deal Home Improvement Fund also entitles those who have bought a property in the 12 months prior to application to qualify for up to an additional £500 if they carry out energy efficiency improvements.
Climate Change Minister Greg Barker, said: “With the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund off to such an encouraging start, it’s the perfect time to make your home more energy efficient. Act now, get money for the improvements and enjoy a warmer home and lower energy bills this winter.”
HeatingSave is also approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust and was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project.
Last, but certainly not least, it’s important to mention that HeatingSave is a component part of the Government’s Green Deal program.
