Green Deal

upgrading your boiler to a more energy efficient boiler 

could save you up to £310 a year.

What is the Green Deal Schemes

Under the Green Deal, bill payers will be able to get energy efficiency improvements without having to front up the cash. Instead, businesses will provide the capital, getting their money back via the energy bill. At the heart of the offer is a simple rule: estimated savings on bills will always equal or exceed the cost of the work.

The Green Deal helps you make energy-saving improvements to your home and find the best way to pay for them.

 

The improvements that could save you the most energy depend on your home, but typical examples include:

 

  • insulation – eg solid wall, cavity wall or loft insulation
  • heating
  • draught-proofing
  • double glazing
  • renewable energy generation – eg solar panels or heat pumps

 

Here at Helplink North we are able to offer Green Deal for Heating

 

Green Deal fast facts

 

  1. The Green Deal is essentially a very cheap loan scheme to pay for energy-saving measures which will make the UK more energy-efficient.
  2. Why is this being done? Firstly, our homes suffer from a vast amount of heat loss. Secondly, Britain has ambitious targets for cutting carbon emissions, and the Green Deal is an important part of meeting these targets.
  3. The golden rule of the Green Deal is that the amount you save on your bills will always be greater than the cost of the energy-saving measures.
  4. The cost is absorbed into your future energy bills and consequently paid back over time.
  5. An estimated 26,000,000 homes could be eligible for Green Deal financing.

The Financial obligation

The green Deal the Green Deal differs from existing lending – it is not a conventional loan since the bill-payer is not liable for the full capital cost of the measures, only the charges due whilst you occupy  that property,

If the occupier moves out and ceases to be the bill-payer the financial obligation doesn’t move with as well but moves to the next bill payer: the charge is only paid whilst the benefits are enjoyed. In this way. The loan is paid back through the electricity bill over a 25-year period.

Who Qualifies

To qualify for the Green Deal, expected savings in typical properties consuming a normal amount
of energy must be equal to or greater than the cost of the measure. However, actual cash
savings cannot be guaranteed by government since no-one except individuals and businesses

themselves can control how much energy they actually consume in their own property. We will give energy users advice on how to change behaviour to maximise the benefits of better insulated, less wasteful properties.

Can I still switch energy providers with the Green Deal?

Yes! Your Green Deal will be fully transferable between suppliers as it is a fixed amount, you don’t need a special Green Deal energy supplier.

What if I can’t pay anymore?

If you default on Green Deal payments you will be treated in the same way as customers who default on their energy bills. You could be disconnected.

How do I book an assessment

Only registered Green Deal Installers, Green Deal Advisers and Green Deal Providers can be involved in this scheme and appointments for the assessor are chargeable.

  • The Assessor

An adviser will attend the property and carry out a full assessment and provide clear information and advice.

During the assessment visit

Our adviser will attend the property and carry out a full assessment and provide clear information and advice.

  • The assessor will produce a Green Deal advice report. This is made up of an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), which ranks your home’s energy efficiency on a scale of A to G, and an Occupancy Assessment, which assesses how you use energy in your home.
  • To make the assessment the assessor may ask questions including how many people live in your home, what energy efficient measures are already installed and whether your home is in a conservation area or built in a non-traditional way.
  • As Capital Direct Build is part of a company that also provides Green Deal measures, We may offer you a quote for installing a new boiler.  and our assessor will make it clear when the role is changed from impartial assessor to salesperson.

You are not obliged to accept the terms of any quote offered on that day

After the assessment visit

  • The Provider

The Assessors report is submitted to a provider who will make a decision for the Green Deal Scheme based on the assessment. Once acceptance has been given the applicant will be contacted and arrangements will be made for the installer to carry out the works.

 

  • The Installer

The installer will attend the property and carryout a site survey and book the installation of the new boiler.
