Distinction Doors welcomes the new government initiative…

Distinction Doors has welcomed news of a new government initiative which will see homeowners in England receive vouchers worth up to £5,000 to make environmentally friendly home improvements.

Under the Green Homes Grant scheme, the Government will pay at least two-thirds of the cost of the energy-saving products, capped at £5,000 per household.  This could be more for those on a low-income and potentially cover the full cost of the improvements, up to £10,000.

While companies and homeowners await the finer details, including a definitive list of eligible products, Distinction believes that the scheme will create valuable opportunities for those who fabricate and install its doors.

“We provide the most energy efficient composite door on the market,” says Bethaney Larkman, marketing manager for Distinction Doors.  “So, if insulated composite doors qualify for the grant, we are the ideal choice for those wishing to take advantage of the scheme.”

Distinction GRP composite doors have been proven to be 19% more thermally efficient than a 48mm solid timber core composite door and 17% more thermally efficient than a 44mm traditional timber panelled door.  Doors were tested at the University of Salford’s Energy House.  The doors also achieve indicative energy ratings between A and C, with A delivering the best performance levels.

“The scheme is set to launch in September, with homeowners having to apply online for the vouchers,” continues Bethaney.  “In the meantime, we will be working hard, in partnership with our customers, to raise consumer awareness of our doors; efforts which will be rewarded regardless of their eligibility.  We can assist with showroom development including literature, access to our online door-designer, social media support and product videos.”
