Sustainable Group (UK) owner, Derek Horrocks recently featured in an article in The Times newspaper (24th May 2013) examining the potential benefits of the Green Deal to home owners.
In the article, Derek explains how much heat is lost through the wall of a typical semi-detached house with uninsulated walls and gives an estimate of the yearly savings that could be achieved by installing an appropriate insulation system. According to the Energy Saving Trust, this could be as much as £490 per annum and carbon savings could be as high as 68 tonnes over the lifetime of a typical solid wall insulation system.
The article, entitled "Stop Your Home Leaking Money" also outlines the role of SWIGA, the Solid Wall Insulation Guarantee Agency and lists the cashback deals that are available under Green Deal for installing measures such as cavity wall insulation, external wall insulation, replacement boilers and draughtproofing.
