Funding Green Home Improvements

If you're ready to make energy-saving improvements to your home, you might be thinking about using your savings or borrowing a little extra to pay for them. The good news is that there's a lot of financial support available, including a wide range of government grants.

As part of the Green Homes Grant Scheme launched in September 2020, the UK Government is awarding vouchers up to the value of £5,000 towards the cost of your energy-saving measures (£10,000 for lower income households, depending on your income and the type of improvements you want to make).

If you'd like some help to identify the types of changes you could make to reduce your energy bills, try our Home Energy Saving Tool. Just answer a few simple questions to give us an idea of your home and budget and we'll create a personal action plan to help get you started.

How we can help

In addition to the government grants and schemes, we have a number of ways to help you put your green plans into action. Whether you just want to make your home a little cosier or are thinking of major changes to make it as eco-friendly as possible, our range of borrowing options has you covered.

 

Borrowing options to suit every budget

If you're about to buy a new home or are considering extending or improving your current one, now's a good time to think about energy-saving improvements. You could look to add insulation to a new loft extension or install a ground source heat pump before you landscape the garden. For changes such as these, you might want to think about including the cost in your mortgage borrowing. If you don't like the idea of making major alterations to your home and just want to make smaller changes, a personal loan might be another option.

Whatever your plans, take a look at our borrowing options below to find the one that's right for you and your needs.
