CHESTER, England, June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Earlier today, the government announced its second legislation for the Green Deal programme which would help low income households make their homes more energy efficient. The plan will help families save money on their energy bills whilst saving the planet from increasing greenhouse gas emissions.
At a time when the economic climate shows no signs of slowing down, an increased number of homes are being hit by the rising prices of gas and electricity. Today, the team at http://www.pvc-doors.net outlines the plans which will help homeowners keep their homes warm and their energy bills down.
According to reports, a large number of homes across the UK are not fitted with the correct insulation and double glazing windows and doors in order to keep bills at a low cost. Instead, more gas and electricity is being used than necessary because of inefficient homes. In fact, 43% of the UK's total greenhouse gas emissions are a result of homes lacking energy efficient home improvements.
The new plans from the Green Deal programme will offer help to households are on lower incomes. Home improvements can be carried out on homes and then part or fully paid with the savings made on energy bills.
PVC-Doors.net continues to say that around 230,000 low income households will be assisted each year.
Further announcements on the programme will be made by October 2012 which will clarify the steps that can be taken in order to qualify for the Green Deal and Eco subsidy. £1.3 billion will be put aside for helping and supporting low income families create energy efficient homes which in turn will contribute towards the constant fight against climate change.
