Green Homes Grant Scheme North West England

Green Homes Grant Scheme North West England

The reveal of the Green Homes Grant Scheme North West England certainly provided a bit of a boost for homeowners and landlords. 2020 has been a difficult year for many people due to COVID-19 but what exactly does the scheme offer?

Well right now we don’t know everything about the Green Homes Grant Scheme North West England but here is what we do know. First of all, we know applications will be open in September 2020 and you apply online using the Simple Energy Advice website.

We also have a rough idea of how it will work. Vouchers will be given to help homeowners/ landlords make their home/ property more energy-efficient. Vouchers will be capped at £5000 and can cover a total of two-thirds of the cost of work.

However, if you are classed as low-income then they can instead cover the total cost of the work and the amount can double to £10,000. So, it’s all good news so far but we don’t know what the exact eligibility criteria is or what work will be covered by the Green Homes Grant Scheme North West England.

We also know that you must first get a quote from an approved installer detailing the work being done. So, right now we don’t everything, but things do look promising and we’ll bring you more news about what the scheme covers as it’s revealed.

Triple Glazing

Double-glazing is one of the most common ways people make their homes more energy-efficient. But why stick to double-glazing when you could opt for triple-glazing instead? With three panes instead of two, you can get a much more efficient home.

In-between the three panes of glass a pocket or air or gas is used to create an airlock. This airlock essentially forms a barrier that will help make your home more energy-efficient. While professional estimates vary triple glazing is roughly said to be 50% more energy-efficient than double glazing.

Energy Efficient Windows and Doors

The Green Homes Grant Scheme North West England is all about making your home more eco-friendly which means looking at your windows and doors. These are some of the main areas of concern when it comes to losing energy.

Old or damaged doors/ windows and window frames should be replaced or repaired. Upgrading to materials like wood or uPVC is recommended. When it comes to buying doors, you need to pay attention to the energy efficiency rating. This uses the A++ to E scale so, choosing doors with a higher rating will be a big help when it comes to improving energy efficiency. Please contact us.

Secondary Glazing

Secondary glazing isn’t quite as widely known as double/ triple glazing, but it is worth considering. With secondary glazing, a window is installed on the interior side of your home which effectively gives you two windows. This will help improve energy-efficiency while also helping to make your home more secure. For more information about secondary glazing check out the Secondary Glazing Blackpool website.
