Many people have heard of the Green Deal but what does that mean for you and your current property that you are within and how can you get your grant to help towards your new Loft insulation, Cavity insulation and Free Boiler Replacement.
This has been the question from a lot of our current clients that we pass onto our Green Deal advisers. So we thought it best to quickly explain what the Green Deal is and what it means to you. We have also highlighted what the Green Deal UK requires for you to be eligible to get all your replacements FREE of charge.
WHAT IS THE GREEN DEAL?
The Green Deal Incentive is a financing scheme designed by the government to make UK household home owners properties more Energy Efficient. This means that your CO2 output into the atmosphere is reduced and therefore your home becomes more energy efficient in the process. The finance is offset against the savings you make from having an energy efficient home, with your Free Boiler Replacement, Loft Insulation, Cavity Insulation, your monthly and yearly energy bills will be reduced drastically through the Green Deal UK Incentive.
The Green Deal was launched in January 2013 and applies to Domestic and Non-Domestic households and replaces the current policies such as:
- Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT)
- Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP)
The Green Deal incentive is split into Four Stages and are shown below:
1. THE ASSESSMENT:
The initial assessment is taken out at your house of residence both Domestic and Non-Domestic households are included in this initial phase and will be undertaken by a qualified Green Deal Assessor or adviser who will make an initial assessment of the property to see what improvements can be made under the Green Deal incentive and what the financial savings would be if those changes were to be taken into effect.
The adviser will then outline how the payments would work in regards to them being offset against your monthly energy bills.
The adviser will then go on to explain what improvements would save you the most money and be most cost effective under the green incentive.
An Advice report will then be produced which will outline all your current options under the government incentive and which they feel would be most suitable for your household.
Your adviser that we choose for you from our reputable firm of Green Deal Advisers and assessors that go through extensive searches on their quality of work and professionalism before we recommend to any of our customers, will then go through all your Finance and you can either sign up with the adviser that we send out to your home, or you can choose from a list that we have within our company. Remember we make sure that we have the best Advisers in the UK so that our customers are happy with the service that we provide, so we love to hear feedback from our customers to ensure that the service we are providing you is the best it could possibly be.
Once you have agreed with your Green Deal Adviser they will arrange for their installer to come and carry out any of the work that you have requested from the list of possible home energy improvements. Please NOTE that ALL of our Green Deal Advisers and Installers are checked to ensure that the work they are performing is of the utmost professional and quality approved standard in the UK. This ensures that your property receives the full care and attention to deal that it deserves, to make it more energy efficient and cost effective for it’s users.
To make it clear for all our customers, your repayments are part of your current energy bills, so the cost of any home improvements is set against your energy bills and will be fully inclusive of your monthly, quarterly or half energy bills that you receive.

DO WE GUARANTEE THAT SAVINGS WILL HAPPEN UNDER THIS INCENTIVE?
No, we cannot guarantee that the Green Deal with save you money overall, as the energy savings are offset against your current bills and it could be more cost efficient for you to carry on with your current level of energy efficiency. However, for those that are not energy efficient and their bills are increased every month because of this, the incentive could very well save you a lot of money in the future against your energy bills.

The Eco Deal will be the biggest home energy improving incentive offered by the government in the history of energy incentives. We have already seen a huge influx of customers who ask us about the Eco Deal.
Eco deal is overtaking the previous CERT and CESP incentives from the government which ended in 2012 just as the Eco Deal and the new Green Deal have come into play for UK residents.
ECO means that energy suppliers have a legal obligation to improve the energy efficiency of each household, through three key areas:
1. The Home Heating Cost Reduction Obligation: £4.2 Billion of lifetime cost savings, Energy suppliers have to legally reduce the cost of low income housing households energy bills. This allows low income families to affordably heat their homes in the UK. This can include the replacement of an old boiler that is not working efficiently to reduce any wasted energy, resulting in higher energy bills.
2. Carbon Emissions Reduction Obligation: This will focus on hard to treat homes and those measures that cannot and do not fall under the umbrella of the Green Deal Incentive. Hard to treat cavity wall insulation and solid wall insulation are their primary targets under this initiative.
3. Carbon Saving Community Obligation: 15% of this initiative layed out in the governments proposal will fall to those low income households, to reduce the level of lost energy through poor performing systems such as wall cavity, loft insulation and boilers. This allows for low income families to actively afford cheaper cleaner energy within their household.
HOW CAN THE ECO DEAL HELP ME?

The Eco Deal can help households both domestic and Non-Domestic with loft insulation, double glazing, boiler replacement and cavity wall insulation. This means that you will receive all these measures free of charge and the cost is just offset against your energy bills.
HOW LONG WILL MY ECO DEAL ASSESSMENT TAKE?
Each Eco Deal Assessment is different, as our Approved installers and assessors need full access to your loft and cavity so therefore depending on the setup of your house, the assessment can take between 10-30 minutes and within this time your assessor will determine which part of the government Eco Deal you will qualify for free upgrades, to make sure that your home is lowering it’s carbon emission output and also lowering your monthly energy bills drastically.
WHY ARE THE GOVERNMENT DOING THIS?
It is simple, the government is part of the EU and a measure of improving the Europeans output of carbon emissions the UK government have allocated Billions of pounds to give away in free energy saving and improving measures, so that both low income and general households can lower their energy bills and also lower their carbon output.
The Energy efficiency of each household will not only see an improved carbon reduction rate but will also see that the individual is securing lower energy bills for years to come.
IS THERE A TIME CAP ON THE ECO DEAL?
No there is not a time cap on the Eco Deal funding, however there is a limited pot of money that the government has allocated to fund the home energy improvements that each individual household both domestic and non-domestic can be allowed.
