Green Deal and How To Apply

Why Green Deal?

Do you want to improve the energy efficiency of your home?
Do you want to make your home warmer and more comfortable?

If the answer to either of these questions is ‘yes’ then Green Deal finance can help you achieve your goals.

Green Deal finance helps you pay for home energy efficiency improvements a little at a time through your home energy bills. You also only pay back whilst you are benefitting, should you move home, Green Deal finance doesn’t go with you, it stays with the property and is taken over by the new owner or tenant.

InstaGroup (Green Deal Providers), are one of a small group of providers who are able to provide Green Deal finance through their installers in the Snug Network. This enables them to maximise Green Deal’s potential for homeowners, private tenants and landlords.

With Green Deal finance you could get your boiler replaced with an A–rated energy efficient one or make your home warmer with cavity wall, solid wall or loft insulation – including topping-up existing loft insulation.

Green Deal benefits

Some of the benefits of Green Deal finance include:

  • The finance is on your property so you won’t take it with you if you move home
  • Improve the energy efficiency of your home
  • Replace an old, inefficient or temperamental boiler
  • Affordability – spread the cost up to 25 years with wall insulation
  • Easy payment within your monthly electricity bill
  • Add value and appeal to your property
  • Local certified installers
  • All installs come with robust warranties and an insurance-backed 10 year guarantee
  • You can still switch electricity suppliers

Another major benefit is that private rental landlords are eligible for Green Deal finance with their tenants paying for the improvements through their electricity bills.

InstaGroup are with you every step of the way, you are covered by the Consumer Credit Act, meaning that if there are any issues with your install, InstaGroup are there to support you for the lifetime of your loan.
