Green deal advisor

Green deal advisor

In this article I will be talking to you about green deal advisors available from Eagle property services and what they can offer you; but first let’s talk about what the green deal is and what the scheme is aiming to do. The green deal is a new ambitious approach to home insulation; the aim of the game is that every participating home will save money by insulating their home with no upfront cost. So the role of our green deal advisors is to carry out an energy assessment on your property which will then result in the green deal advisor producing an energy performance certificate. This will initially form the basis of the energy improvement recommendations for your property which may or may not include insulation or other energy improvement measures.

The recommendations for the insulation energy carried out by your green deal advisor will constitute to your green deal funding which will be assigned for the property and not the home owner tenant or occupier, so the person who is getting the funding will be available to the tenant, land lord or home owner with no upfront fees; and when it comes to paying back the money, well the loan pays its self off from the energy produced at your home. Green Deal energy efficiency improvements are said to include: Cavity wall insulation, loft insulation, solid wall insulation, floor insulation, draught proofing, boiler upgrades, double glazing, solar heat panels, solar PV panels, ground source heat pumps or wind turbines (yet to be confirmed).  Green Deal for homes is not credit checked or means tested. You could have up to approx £10,000 Green Deal finance to install the Green Deal recommendations.  Repayment will be by a charge on your energy bill, over approx. 25 years or less.

It is however important to remember the Green deal golden rule: Under the green deal for homes and business, all instalments must meet the key principle which is that the expected savings must be greater than the initial cost of the work being done.
