What’s Eligible for Green Deal Finance?

The improvements which are eligible for Green Deal finance will include:

Heating or Lighting Equipment

  • Air source heat pumps
  • Biomass boilers
  • Biomass room heaters
  • Cavity wall insulation
  • Chillers
  • Cylinder thermostats
  • District heating
  • Fan assisted replacement storage heaters
  • Flue gas heat recovery
  • Gas-fired condensing boilers
  • Ground source heat pumps
  • Heating controls (for wet central heating systems and warm air systems)
  • Heating ventilation and air conditioning controls (inc. zoning controls)
  • Hot water controls (inc. timers and temperature control)
  • Hot water cylinder insulation
  • Hot water showers (efficient)
  • Hot water systems (efficient)
  • Hot water taps (efficient)
  • Lighting systems, fittings and controls (inc. roof lights, lamps and luminaries) – non domestic only
  • Mechanical ventilation with heat recovery
  • Micro CHP

  • Solar water heating
  • Transpired solar collectors
  • Under floor heating
  • Variable speed drives for fans and pumps
  • Warm-air units
  • Waste water heat recovery devices attached to showers
  • Water source heat pumps

Insulation & Heat Sealing Improvements

  • Draught proofing
  • Duct insulation
  • External wall insulation systems
  • High performance external doors
  • Internal wall insulation (of external walls) systems
  • Loft or rafter insulation
  • Pipework insulation
  • Replacement glazing
  • Roof insulation
  • Room in roof insulation
  • Sealing improvements (Inc. duct sealing)
  • Secondary glazing

Many of these measures, especially high cost items, will not meet the golden rule. However, Green Deal finance can be used for some upfront costs – up to the level of the estimated savings for those measures in their property.

ECO funding is also available for solid wall and hard to treat cavity wall insulation at generous rates. It is also available for low income and vulnerable people and those in fuel poverty – where up to 100% funding may be available.
