Wondering how to cut your energy use? Improvements to your home will stop the warmth getting out. Stopping draughts makes your home cosier as well as saving energy. Lower electricity and heating bills save money and help combat climate change.
Green Deal Winchester opened its free help centre on 5 February 2013 in the Brooks Centre in Winchester. Callers can see examples of how to save energy, save money and stay warm. Insulation for lofts, walls and floors, solar panels and the latest LED energy-saving light bulbs are on display, along with lots of leaflets and information.
You can also register for a free Green Deal assessment worth at least £100. The assessment lists everything that would make your home as energy-saving and cosy as possible. It also tells you what each improvement would cost, and if you would be eligible for a loan from the new Government’s Green Deal scheme.
Green Deal Winchester can give the first 130 assessments before 31 March 2013 totally free.
Asking for an assessment doesn’t commit you to anything. You can stop whenever you want. You can decide to do everything on the list, some of it or nothing at all. You can decide to pay for it from a Green Deal loan, savings, extra on the mortgage – whatever you choose. No strings.
How does a Green Deal loan work? You get the work done without paying anything up front. Then the loan is repaid through your energy bill, because it will cost less to heat your home after the works have been done.
