Green Deal companies

The Green Deal is a Government backed scheme helping to make Britain’s homes more energy efficient by offering a loan for insulation measures to be implemented.

If you’re interested in applying for the Green Deal then ensure to follow our useful steps:

Before the Green Deal assessment:

  • There must be at least 24 hours between the cold call and the assessment. You can request a same day visit.
  • Ensure the assessor is registered with the Green Deal Quality Mark. These are all listed on the Green Deal Oversight Registration Body website.
  • Ask if you will be charged for the assessment. There may also be a charge if you later decide not to take on the home improvements.
  • A Green Deal assessor can only attempt to sell non-Green Deal related products with your permission.
  • Have 12 months of energy bills to hand to show the assessor. It’s also worth having your Energy Performance Certificate.

During the assessment:

  • A report will be drawn up by the assessor, ranking your home’s energy efficiency on a scale of A-G.
  • You will be asked questions such as how many people live in the property, the measures already installed and whether your home is a listed building or in a conservation area.
  • You may be offered a quote for the installation if the company is linked with a business which provides Green Deal measures.
  • Finance will be offered based on the savings achievable with certain insulation measures, not your annual energy usage.
  • Repayment estimates from the assessor do not include interest rates. Only a quote from a Green Deal provider will be accurate.

After the assessment:

  • You are not obliged to sign onto the Green Deal and can back out at any moment before signing the dotted line.
  • Always compare prices from a number of providers. Even look to invest your own money to avoid the Green Deal’s interest rates.
  • You will receive a detailed report on the measures which can be implemented and how much repayments will be. You do not have to go ahead with all of the recommendations.
  • Always be sure you know everything there is to know about how the recommendations will affect you and your home.
