We can all agree that 2020 will go down as a pretty memorable year for a variety of reasons, unfortunately not many of them positive. Over the last decade there has been a dramatic rise in awareness of eco issues and an understanding of how we, as inhabitants of the blue planet are collectively exhausting its resources. As we rang in the new year, Bush fires blazed across Australia with a devastating impact the environment…. this appeared to be the final straw for Mother Earth. Within weeks, the unthinkable happened and the world locked down against the COVID19 pandemic. As the earth gasped for air, a remarkable change took place; dolphins we’re spotted swimming in Venice and photos emerged showing China as a smog-free city. No planes in the sky nor boats in the sea gradually initiated a major change to our footprint. 2020 will be remembered as the year a marked change took place as we concluded the talk and began the walk, even if it was thrust upon us.
Don’t stop there – we also turned the page to a change of economic and social pace, which is something we can all benefit from. The new normal began with a more environmentally friendly tone as we look to get back into our stride once again.
Rishi Sunak and the British government have decided that now is the perfect time to support this change and, help to make our homes in the UK a greener place to live. They have announced a 2 Billion pound grant, which will enable you to upgrade your home and achieve a better energy rating; the good news is they are going to help you pay for it!
2020 hasn’t been an easy year for anyone either professionally or socially, but we have endured the worst and it is now time to enjoy some of the good to come from the new times we are living in. Here at GTS, we think of this new energy grant as a way of killing 2 birds with 1 stone. Upgrade your home, and get the best people in the business to take care of it for you for a fraction of the cost! We also use linear door frames which are lead free to do our bit for the environment too!
So, as we review what has just happened to us, whether you are already doing your bit or not, this government grant is something very positive to come out of the difficult year we have endured thus far. It is a chance to take something positive, upgrade your home and spend a bit less money on energy in the future.Further information as to how this grant can be accessed are awaited, but rest assured, GTS will keep you updated as soon as the information is released.
We will then help you to become greener and save money.For more information please give us a call or view our website for a list of services.
