To start, your home will need a Green Deal assessment. It’ll take about two hours, and costs £129. The Green Deal assessor will look into how energy efficient your home already is, and how everyone in your home uses energy.
From this, you’ll get a Green Deal advice report which shows you what improvements you could make for a more efficient home. You’ll also get an Energy Performance Certificate showing the energy rating of your home - that’s valid for 10 years.
Based on your Green Deal advice report, we’ll take you through what improvements we can make and how much it will cost. Once you’ve decided on what you want, a Green Deal professional will carry out all the work.
Uninsulated homes lose heat through the walls, roof and floors. With things like loft and cavity wall insulation, you can cut down the amount of heat you lose. Keeping the heat in means you won’t need to spend so much trying to warm your house up.
Your heating system might not be working as efficiently as it could be – particularly if you’ve had it a while. Your Green Deal advice report will show you the savings you could make by upgrading the way you heat your home and water.
Once your home is as efficient as it can be, you can also make changes to your electricity to cut your bills.
