How the Green Deal might work to upgrade a typical home
Householders are to be offered long-term loans to help make their homes more energy efficient and cut bills under a new government scheme.
Ministers said the Green Deal, to run in England, Wales and Scotland, will help thousands "stay warm for less".
Under the scheme, households can use loans to spend on energy-saving improvements, such as insulation and new boilers, with no upfront cost.
