Green Deal 'amends' needed to make houses for sale in Gloucester efficient

The Green Deal may need further development before the scheme can be rolled out across houses for sale in Gloucester and across the UK, it has been claimed.

Some smaller homes many not generate enough energy savings to pay back their green home improvement loans, Sustainable Homes has warned.

The sustainable property consultancy claims that trials of the scheme have highlighted flaws.

Speaking at the Greenbuild Expo in Manchester last month, Richard Lupo, sustainability consultant at Sustainable Homes, says some issues still require resolution.

He explained: "All they do is spend the same amount of money, but just get to an acceptable or safe level of heating or thermal comfort in the home."

The Renewable Homes Incentive (RHI) may be more effective, he suggested.

Knight Frank claims the incentive will help cut fuel bills for rural property owners, which could benefit those investing in property for sale in Gloucester.

Homeowners should seek expert advice before joining the scheme as most rural homes have specific requirements, the property company advises.ADNFCR-1222-ID-800615509-ADNFCR
