New cashback fund for energy saving home improvements

solid wall insulation exteriorFrom 1 June 2014, the Government’s new Green Deal Home Improvement Fund allows you to claim back 75% of the costs of installing solid wall insulation, up to a maximum of £6,000. The Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) says: “This is the best offer yet for most people wanting solid wall insulation and a great opportunity to get it installed”.

You can also get up to £100 back for the cost of the initial Green Deal Assessment and claim back £1,000 for installing two new energy efficiency improvements at once from the list below:

  • Condensing gas boiler
  • Double glazing (replacing single glazing)
  • Secondary glazing
  • Replacement doors
  • Cavity wall insulation
  • Floor insulation
  • Flat roof insulation
  • Room-in-roof insulation
  • Replacement warm air unit
  • Replacement storage heaters
  • Flue gas heat recovery units
  • Waste water heat recovery

Plus, if you’ve moved into your house in the last 12 months, you can get an extra £500 cashback on top of all this.

Full details are on the Government’s website.

CSE’s Home Energy Team can advise Somerset households and make a referral to a local company. Apply online or phone CSE on 0800 082 2234.

The Energy Saving Trust offers a quick Home Energy Check, which provides an online guide to the cost-effective improvement measures for lowering your energy bills and making your home more comfortable.
