Green Deal Products: What would you choose?
We are in the home straight and are all looking forward to having the first Green Deal Assessments done… very soon. As the Green Deal gets rolling it will be interesting to see how consumers flex their consumer choices and choose Green Deal Products.
Each and every Green Deal measure that is employed into a building will use Green Deal Approve products to make sure that there is consistent quality and all products have been vetted before installation.
But where are all these products and what are the choices? Let’s have a look at what you can choose…. Not a lot at the moment. There are two big caveats that need to be considered before you can make a ‘choice’.
1. Green Deal Providers will be responsible for the Warranties and Guarantees of the measures installed. So they are going to be super picky about what products they approve for installation. The idea of choice will be in the hands of the Providers in one sense, so only the super reliable brands will be included in the Green Deal.
2. As each and every property is being assessed individually the products that are going to be viable for each installation will be small. Providers will protect their installations by only suggesting the best products for the applications.
This is really good news for consumers in that only the most reliable products with the longest warranties will be included in the Green Deal. Installers, Providers, Assessors and Products have gone through many stages to protect the end user from shoddy workmanship, which should make the Green Deal a shining example of what makes this a great scheme.
Let this initiative commence! (sounds so much better than ‘bring it on!’)
Do you think the Green Deal is going to be a great success?
