Ahh, the first hot story of 2008 - if you’ve got a boiler, next time you have it serviced you can ask the engineer to give it an energy rating between A-G, along with a checklist of energy improvements that will cut your fuel bill.
It’s all part of the Department of Communities and Local Government’s (DCLG) push to improve energy efficiency on the home front.
And if you’re a business you can opt into the energy assessment rating and four-year loadns of up to £100,000 to help small and medium sized businesses make those energy efficient changes.
Businesses can also apply for tax relief via enhanced capital allowances that allow them to write off the whole cost of energy saving machinery against taxable profits in the year of purchase.
