The Green Deal was set up to help you make energy-saving improvements to your home and to help you find the best way to pay for energy-saving improvements.

Central to the Green Deal concept is that you are eligible as long as the expected financial savings in lower energy bills are equal to or greater than the costs of the energy efficiency measures installed.

The loan to cover installation costs is in the form of a charge on the property that is repaid over a 10 to 25 year period (depending on what measures are installed).

The sort of improvement that could save you the most energy depends on the type of home you have, but some typical examples include:

  • passive flue gas heat recovery devices; high-efficiency boilers
  • insulation, for example: solid wall, cavity wall or loft insulation
  • heating
  • draught-proofing
  • double glazing
  • renewable energy generation: for example, solar panels or heat pumps

The scheme included various ways to check if your property could benefit from energy-saving improvements:
