The Green Homes Grant has launched, making 600,000 homeowners in England eligible for vouchers of up to £5,000 or £10,000 to make energy efficiency upgrades to their homes.
As part of a £3bn government initiative to reduce carbon emissions across the UK, the Green Homes Grant is set to subsidise two-thirds of energy-efficient home improvements, or for low-income owners, a subsidy for 100% of the costs.
Adopting a tiered approach, the Green Homes Grant is in two stages, primary and secondary. Primary measures, including insulation and low carbon heat installations, must be used before eligible homeowners can move onto secondary measures and the money spent on the secondary cannot exceed that of the primary.
Taking advantage of increased demand
Only those builders with TrustMark installer status can take on projects and benefit under the Green Homes Grant, presenting a huge opportunity to increase business, boost sales and improve overall reputation.
Customers will be coming to builders with an idea in mind, and it is important to be equipped with the knowledge of products that can deliver the best value for the best application, to guide and advise homeowners.
Taking insulation as an example, one of the quickest and most effective way to reduce heat loss in a home is to insulate the loft. As what is spent in the primary measures cannot be exceeded in the secondary, giving customers the opportunity to pick a premium product can help to improve overall satisfaction, whilst also helping them to make the most of the government scheme.
