I’m just about to get double glazing throughout the house (to replace old single glazed wooden windows) and replace my ancient gas boiler with a new one.
Both of these are supposedly eligible under the Green Deal Cashback scheme.
I’ve looked on the websites and it looks as if I have to go to a big nationwide firm to get the assessment and then to a big nationwide firm to get the work done, and I’m imagining that the overall bill (after cashback) would therefore be thousands more than if i go with the 2 good local firms I’ve lined up.
Has anybody used the scheme? Is it just a cartel that’s been hijacked by the big energy companies and double glazing firms or does it work with the little guys too?
I want to get the work done in the next few weeks, and how long does the Green Deal take?
