Green Homes Grant Scheme Fleetwood
If you have heard of the newly revealed Green Homes Grant Scheme Fleetwood then you might already be planning some improvements to your home/ property to make it more energy-efficient. But what exactly does the scheme offer and how can it benefit you?
Well, let’s first look at what we do know. The Green Homes Grant Scheme Fleetwood is set to open for applicants in September. You can apply online through the Simple Energy Advice website but, will need a quote from an approved supplier for the work first.
Vouchers will be granted for work that makes your home/ property more energy-efficient and the scheme is open to landlords and homeowners. Vouchers are capped at £10,000 for people classed as low-income and can cover 100% of the total costs.
While for others they are capped at £5000 and can cover only up to two-thirds of the total cost. However, we don’t know the exact details of the eligibility criteria or what work is covered by it. But we’ll bring you more news as it’s revealed.
If the reveal of the Green Homes Grant Scheme Fleetwood is making you consider ways to boost energy-efficiency then why not consider triple glazing? With triple glazing, a third window pane is added with air or gas on either side to create an airlock.
This creates a barrier in your home/ property to help boost heat retention and make your household more energy efficient. It works in the same manner as double glazing but is said to be around 50% more effective.
Energy Efficient Windows and Doors
Windows and doors are big issues for many people when it comes to improving energy efficiency. If they are old, damaged, or just worn out then replacing them will help boost energy efficiency. Window frames in particular should be updated to more effective materials like uPVC or wood.
Many people don’t realise that doors have their own energy efficiency ratings using the A++ to E scale. Simply updating your doors to more energy-efficient ones can have a big impact on your home’s energy efficiency. Please contact us.
Finally, let’s look at secondary glazing. It’s an alternative to triple/ double glazing and often much cheaper. With secondary glazing, a new interior window is built into your home effectively creating a double glazing like barrier. This helps boost energy efficiency and increase home security at the same time. To find out more information about Secondary Glazing check out the Secondary Glazing Blackpool website.
