Green Deal means good deal for consumers

Baxi has welcomed the recent Government announcement on Green Deal.
July 9, 2012 - PRLog -- Simon Osborne, Head of Product Management, believes it has injected a greater level of transparency into Green Deal, which can only mean good news for the consumer.

Simon says, “Consumers now have a far wider set of opportunities to improve the energy efficiency of their homes. Firstly, minimum warranties on boilers have increased to 5 years. This represents a good deal for the consumer, especially when you bear in mind that the Energy Saving Trust recommends that the current lifespan of a boiler is 12 years.”

The plans for boiler repairs give the consumer further confidence.  Should a boiler need repairing it needn’t come at any extra cost to the consumer, as it is now included as an eligible measure under the Affordable Warmth obligation.

Microgeneration can now be “Green Deal-ed.” The Green Deal had previously excluded the benefits of RHI, whereas it now takes FITs as means of payment.  This means there is a greater range of renewable technologies people can choose to install. kony It includes hot water cylinders, which were not permitted in the original consultation. These have now been added, along with 15 other new measures, to the finalised list of qualifying improvements.

Simon concludes, “There is still a fair bit of cynicism surrounding Green Deal, but it is going ahead whether we like it or not.  So, it is time everyone in the heating industry fully embraced it.  This will vastly improve the energy efficiency of the 14 million homes around the country, at which this initiative is aimed.”
