Rewards are given for energy-efficient home improvements

A new government proposal will reward people who have made energy saving changes such as installing double glazing if it is approved.

Double glazing has benefits for tenants

Higher council tax could be imposed on homeowners who have not made the improvements and increased stamp duty might also have to be paid on homes with larger emissions.

The new guidelines are part of Labour’s plans to cut carbon emissions by 80 per cent of 1990 levels by 2050.

People thinking of investing in double glazing could be interested by the news, which means that the improvement could not only help reduce energy bills but also slash council tax.

David Adams, chairman of the UK Green Buildings Council, said: “Britain has pledged to cut carbon emissions by 80 per cent between now and 2050 so we need to cut the emissions from each home to almost zero.”

As well as being a cost cutting improvement, double glazing can also make a property more attractive, according to developers based around the country.
