HHIC welcomes the reopening of the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund

Leading trade body the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council offers a warm welcome to the reopening of the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund. The scheme opens for applications today. (10th December.)

HHIC Director Roger Webb said "The Government should be applauded for continuing to support home energy efficiency measures but the limited amount of additional money available in the current financial year will not have a great impact.

We are pleased to see that some money has been allocated for measures other than solid wall insulation which dominated earlier versions of the scheme. The new scheme has ring fenced £26m for solid wall insulation with £6m for other measures but we would of course like to see this increased in the next financial year.

We know from experience that replacing an old inefficient boiler will not only help reduce energy bills and carbon emission but acts as a catalyst to install other energy efficiency measures.

The reopened scheme offers up to 67% of the cost of installing solid wall insulation, up to £4,000 and up to £1,000 towards the cost of installing any 2 of the following:

  • a condensing gas boiler on mains gas
  • double or triple glazing as a replacement for single glazing
  • secondary glazing
  • energy efficient replacement external doors
  • cavity wall insulation
  • floor insulation
  • flat-roof insulation
  • insulation for a room in the roof
  • a replacement warm air unit
  • fan-assisted storage heaters
  • a waste water heat recovery system
