84% of homeowners plan "green" improvements

A survey from City Plumbing has found that 84% of homeowners are planning to make energy improvements to their home in the coming year, with the key motivation being reduced energy bills.

Steve Alldritt, technical director of City Plumbing’s Energy Efficiency Team, said: “For homeowners, making energy efficient changes saves money in the long run, reduces environmental impact and can even make a property more appealing to future buyers. It really is a ‘win-win’ situation.

“The research shows that demand for ‘green’ upgrades is high, whether it is low carbon heating, biomass boilers or heating controls. The opportunity is there for tradespeople to benefit from.

“We are supporting tradespeople who are interesting in signing up for the Green Homes Grant scheme, with impartial advice, indemnified designs, project solutions and fast quotation turnaround.”

This follows the extension of the Green Homes Grant until 2022. Read more here.
