    Default Anyone done this .... The green deal

    http://www.energysavingtrust.org.uk/...n-Deal-and-ECO


    Was looking in the paper and seen this "green deal scheme"

    The position I am in is I live in a old terrace house when I bought the house Nerly two years ago now the energy rating was the worst.

    I have a old back boiler and no cavity wall insulation however the loft has insulation but it's very old.
    I do work and I am not on any benefits and I'm simply not in a position to "upgrade the boiler ect" I'm currently on a pay metre for my gas and electric I did in the past try for help but was un successful "because I work and was not on benefits" this was called the warm front scheme
    Anyway I have seen the above and I'm hoping there is something there for me it says if I'm successful I pay the Cost back via my meter card

    Has anyone had this done pros and cons

    Thanks all

    Not done it but I wouldn't be keen on buying a property where I (the new owner) have to pay back the loan through the utility bills. Would buy a house that's been insulated etc but with no outstanding loan.

    Its very cheeap to insulate the roof yourself as you can get rolls of insulation as low as a £1. If you have a victorian terrace house then you will not have a cavity, they where not built with any just two layers of brick.

    Best thing to do is line the outside walls with this stuff http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CELOTEX-KI...item43ae4a6cc1
    Battern it out first then overboard with plasterboard and then skim it.

    How old is your boiler and is it working ok?

    The way i understand the scheme is that once the work is completed the bills will remain the same for several years, this is calculated at the assessment stage and that the savings are meant to cover the work and not increase the bills then after x years you will finally see the reduction in the bills.

    I know what you mean about "new owner" paying If i did move I guess If I was going to do it it would be if I was going to stop in the property for a long time ... I might get someone out to see where I stand BUT I don't want say if I put £20 a week on my Elec key and it eats it right up

    I have used this company for 3 different houses
    My current one (227sqM) was insulated and cavity wall insulation for free
    http://www.energycareukltd.co.uk/
    I have recommended these to many people all who have been happy with them so give them a go. They do it free through governemnt grants.

    Just another noteI had my windows done before xmas I had 18 windows done by Anglian Home Improvements and it cost £6200. I had the cash to pay for this, but oddily it was cheaper for me to get the windows on credit (£6200) if I had paid cash it would have cost me £7900. I got the windows on credit paid one month and then paid the outstanding amount in full. I also got a big discount for becoming an Eco home. Other vendors had quoted between £10k and £15k and Anglian is a reputable company.

    I would suggest shopping around I got quotes from others and then showed them to the different companies and its amazing who quickly they will compete with each other.

    Most can apply for free insulation, ie roof, walls, etc but beware about eco offers for solar panels, especially the ones you have to pay for, there are companies out there installing them and maintaining them for you for free with no repayments but eventhough what is the catch? read the following report...
