/PRNewswire/ --
Today came the news that the Green Deal will go ahead in an attempt to
increase energy efficiency in homes across the UK. The programme is
designed to help homeowners make energy saving home improvements which
will not only keep their homes warm but ensure homes are energy efficient in
order to lower energy bills at a time when gas and electricity prices continue to
rise.
An increased number of homes and families are being hit by the rising costs of
energy prices. Double Glazing Prices has reported that many homes are still
energy efficient and thus, more gas and electricity is being used than is actually
required.
Many homes do not have full double glazing fitted in their home whilst more
than half do not have enough insulation in their wall cavities and lofts. It has
been said that 43% of the UK's total greenhouse gas emissions is due to home's
losing gas and electricity to inefficient homes.
The Green Deal programme will allow people to pay for some or all of the work
carried out for home improvements with the savings they will make on energy
bills claims the team at http://www.doubleglazingprices.net.
The subsidy known as ECO will offer those most in need extra help with paying
for the work that is carried out on their home. According to the Department of
Energy and Climate Change:
"An increased focus on poorer areas should see an extra 100,000 households in
low income areas benefitting each year, compared to our original proposals,
bringing the total number of low income households and those in low income
areas assisted to around 230,000 a year."
There is currently a framework in place for the Green Deal programme but
further announcements will give clarification on steps to getting the Green Deal
and Eco subsidy. Homeowners and experts in the industry can expect to have
full details by October. It is expected that an average of £1.3 billion will be kept
to ensure support to delivering energy efficiency and heating measures are put
in place across the UK. These in turn will tackle climate change and fuel
poverty.
