Using the Green Deal to Save Energy
Despite the Government stopping the Green Deal Scotland scheme last year putting an end to handouts for the installation of renewables and other energy-saving measures there are still ways the Green Deal remains to help put your property on the renewable map. Indeed, a Green Deal assessment can still be booked by your local professional renewable installer to give you the tips and advice you need for making the right renovations to your home. Consider how old your home is. If you have not recently installed anything to ensure that your home uses less energy, you will not be at the optimum you could be for energy saving potential. Every unit of energy saved, the more pennies are kept in your wallet. So what exactly can you do with the Green Deal to make your property more energy efficient?
Most properties will need improvements to their insulation which may be brought up in your Green Deal Scotland assessment. A variety of insulation measures are available from most reliable installers. At DMS, our professionals are able to install and fit your home with loft, underfloor, and cavity wall insulation Glasgow to keep your energy use down during the year. Up to 25% of all heat in the home is lost through the roof, and 33% through your cavity walls.

Indeed, simply insulating your cavity walls could save you up to £160 per year in the typical home, and reducing draughts with underfloor insulation could save a further £100 on your heating energy bills.

A Green Deal assessment Scotland will highlight the areas that need the most attention, and will be installed promptly after you agree to undertake any of the recommended work.
Reliable Heating Changes
Of course, it does not always come down to your insulation where you may be losing both money and energy. Looking to the source of your heating, you may find that a Green Deal assessment will bring up recommendations for you to establish whether your current boiler is working well enough to suit your homes energy requirements. In many cases, older boilers are simply not up to the task of being as energy efficient as they need to be and could be costing you an extra £300 per year. The government has outlined requirements for modern boilers to be at least 80% efficient. Most boilers now in production keep to this minimum, ensuring that homes across the UK have wider access to more energy efficient boilers that will reduce carbon emissions over time it is hoped, at least. As you can see, the savings in both money and carbon production by simply changing your boiler could benefit you and the environment. The levels of pollution in the atmosphere are required to be reduced, and with a Green Deal assessment, you may find out that your boiler could need replacing.
