A Brighouse firm has completed an “historic” contract.
Eco-roofing business Ploughcroft, has completed its first Green Deal-funded farmhouse insulation project on a Pennine property in Pecket Well, Hebden Bridge.
The £29,000 project, which was completed in partnership with Your Green Deal Provider, qualified for £20,000 Green Deal funding and was finished in just eight weeks.
The farmhouse, which dates back to the early 18th century, has benefited from internal solid wall insulation and roof insulation.
Together, the measures will significantly improve the thermal efficiency of the family home, saving up to 40% over the next three years.
Ploughcroft managing director Chris Hopkins, a member of the Government’s Green Construction Board and a qualified Green Deal advisor and assessor, said: “Government estimates say that more than half of homes do not have enough insulation, an efficient boiler or proper heating controls.
“Rural homes by their very nature are some of the most energy inefficient, with particularly poor insulation.
“We are delighted to now be in a position to offer properties in rural locations these life-changing installations.
Ploughcroft was recently appointed Official Yorkshire Validator for the distribution of the Green Deal cash back scheme, in accordance with the Green Deal Home Improvement Fund.
