As energy bills continue to rise, you may find that your customers are asking more questions about how they can keep heating costs to a minimum.
Our Making Better Homes range is designed to provide solutions to build more sustainably, and as part of this to focus on keeping more heat in the home, to help make winter warmer. From draughtproofing and insulation, through to wastewater heat recovery systems and alternative heating, there’s something to suit all budgets.
To help answer the questions your customers are asking about energy-saving measures, it’s worth familiarising yourself with the upcoming ECO+ Scheme. Set to run from April 2023 until 2026, the UK government has introduced the scheme to help thousands of households get access to funding for low-cost insulation.
The ECO+ Scheme covers the installation of insulation and low-carbon heating, such as:
- Internal walls insulation
- Loft insulation
- Room in a roof insulation
- Air source heat pumps
Across England, Scotland and Wales, it’s estimated that loft insulation costs around £640 in a semi-detached house but can save as much as £355 a year on energy bills. Likewise, cavity wall insulation costs around £1,000 and carries a saving of £395 a year.
With £1billion in funding available, the ECO+ Scheme will make crucial home improvements like these possible for thousands who might otherwise struggle to foot the bill.
So, if you’re speaking to customers about energy-saving measures, speak to them about the ECO+ Scheme. It could help them save money on their bills, get you some extra work, and ultimately help us all to make our homes warmer and more energy efficient.
