What if I don't qualify?

If you aren't eligible for a 100% boiler grant there is an alternative solution and it's called the Green Deal Finance scheme. Think of it as a loan against your home which you use to carry out approved and recommended home improvements. If you take out Green Deal Finance you will still be able to install a new energy saving boiler – as well as a whole host of other home improvements - at no upfront cost, paying off the loan through savings on your energy bills.

The Government scheme has been launched to provide homeowners with an opportunity to become more energy efficient which will translate into cheaper energy bills for the home. Benefits of taking out Green Deal Finance include:

There's no upfront cost
It's open to everyone
You'll save money on your energy bills by becoming more energy efficient
The loan will be paid back through bill savings
You won't pay back any more than you make in energy bill savings – it's the scheme's 'Golden Rule'

You will need to request a visit from an approved Green Deal assessor to get your property assessed. The assessor will be able to advise you about which home improvement measures are eligible for Green Deal Finance. There will be a small survey fee but this will be reimbursed if you sign up to the scheme.

If you don't qualify for a 100% boiler grant then Green Deal Finance is your best bet.
