The World has changed dramatically, not just in the past few decades, but in recent years too. We've seen the Olympics back on home soil, we've seen Bolton continue to develop, and we've seen me actually get a job. Who would have thought it?

The environment is one thing that has seen great change, along with a number of measures to help households. This includes 'The Green Deal'. The Green Deal is a Government initiative to help millions of householders in the UK improve the energy efficiency of their homes. This will mean householders use less energy.

Under the initiative, householders can have up to 45 energy-saving products installed in their homes at no upfront cost to them. The cost of the products is repaid over the lifetime of the products via householders’ electricity and gas bills - from the savings made in lower energy consumption.

For example, if your electricity bill is, say £80 per month, and you have a number of energy-saving products installed in your home, you begin to use less electricity. Your bill might fall to £40 per month. Under the Green Deal initiative, your bill stays the same - at £80 per month - but the difference - £40 - is used to repay the cost of the products.

The Government has a ‘golden rule’ which means that the estimated savings on energy bills should always equal or exceed the cost of the work.

It's an incredible step forward in efficient energy schemes for households. But it can also be quite confusing. Luckily, BHE Services have a dedicated Green Deal Team on site, primed and ready to help you out. They offer a no-obligation survey of your property to assess how your property may benefit from the Green Deal.

In their assessment, they will check out your property, provide a written report of what you may be entitled to, the potential savings from using the energy-saving products and the repayment details, then let you make up your mind.

Each survey costs £95, but that cost is refunded if the work is subsequently carried out. And, with the excellent results BHE have been seeing, there's a very high chance you'll enlist their services.

BHE Services has been established in Bolton for over 40 years and offers high quality gas, plumbing and heating services to both domestic and commercial customers. For more information on 'The Green Deal', or any of the other services they offer, give them a call on 01204 450450
