Householders requiring a cheap energy supply will have to get to grips with some of the issues thrown up by the government's Green Deal, Sustainable Homes has said.
Richard Lupo, sustainability consultant at the company, commented: "There are some issues that still need resolution - some, particularly smaller, homes simply won't make enough energy savings to pay back, so we will have to think about that.
"Some trials are showing that people put the energy measures in, but they don't save any money. All they do is spend the same amount of money, but just get to an acceptable or safe level of heating or thermal comfort in the home," he added.
The government's renewable heat incentive, which is due to come into effect shortly, will work in the same way as the feed-in tariff, although there will be a cap on how much heat you can claim the money for, Mr Lupo pointed out.
His comments came after Knight Frank said the incentive could help cut energy bills for rural property holders and business energy customers.
