Green Homes Grant Scheme Warton
The Green Homes Grant Scheme Warton was a surprise reveal during the government’s mini-budget announcement. Designed to help homeowners and landlords have more eco-friendly and energy-efficient properties the scheme looks to be a big hit when it launches later this year.
Let’s breakdown what we know about it so far. First of all, the Green Homes Grant Scheme Warton will start allowing applicants in September and you can apply directly online using the Simple Energy Advice website. However, in order to apply, you will need a quote from an authorised/ approved installer.
These have yet to be revealed, what you can actually apply for also varies. Vouchers of up to £5000 can be granted but they can only cover two-thirds of the total cost of work. However, if you are classed as low-income then the voucher amount increases to a maximum of £10,000 and can cover the total cost of work.
What actual work will be covered is not yet known either although it is though common energy-efficiency methods like double glazing and insulation will be covered. We don’t know everything about the Green Homes Grant Scheme Warton scheme just yet, but we’ll bring you more as it’s revealed.
News of the Green Homes Grant Scheme Warton scheme is probably making many homeowners and landlords think about energy saving work they can do. One of the best ways to improve energy-efficiency is with triple glazing.
As the name tells you triple glazing uses three panes of glass with a pocket of air or gas between them to form an airlock. This helps boost heat retention and is thought to be around 50% more energy-efficient than double glazing.
Energy Efficient Windows and Doors
Windows and doors are the focal points for most people when it comes to improving energy-efficiency. If they are damaged, of poor quality or simply quite old then replacing them can be a big help. Window panes in particular can be improved by opting for new wood or uPVC ones.
Doors have the same problems and what most people don’t realise is that doors have their own energy-efficiency ratings. They are measured using the A++ to E scale so, upgrading your doors to a higher level can be a big help when it comes to improving energy efficiency. Please contact us.
Secondary glazing is another thing to consider if you want to improve energy-efficiency. Secondary glazing installs a second interior window in your home. This opens into your home, so it provides extra-security while also boosting heat retention.
In a way, it works similar to double glazing, but it is often a cheaper alternative. For more in-depth information about Secondary Glazing check out the Secondary Glazing Blackpool website.
