Ecology Building Society have just launched a new retrofit mortgage discount that rewards energy efficient improvements to all kinds of residential property.
A winner of the Homebuilding & Renovating Product Excellence Awards 2011, Ecology Building Society has been providing a unique brand of green mortgages for around 30 years, lending on properties that benefit the environment.
They have just launched a new retrofit mortgage discount that applies to the whole of the mortgage and rewards energy efficient improvements to all kinds of residential property*.
The Ecology Building Society developed the C-Change mortgage discount in response to the impact of modern living on domestic energy demands and the environment, with households across Britain accounting for over 27% of the UK’s total carbon emissions.
There are a number of mortgage plans and C-Change discounts available such as C-Change energy improvements, which gives a 1% discount off the standard variable rate, on funds borrowed to install energy efficiency solutions or renewable energy systems**.
Examples of energy efficiency solutions that qualify for the discount include:
- Installing external or internal wall insulation
- Installing roof and floor insulation
- Double or triple glazing
- Installing low water-use appliances
- Installing a condensing boiler
Examples of renewable energy systems include:
- Solar water heating
- Wind turbines
