After obtaining approval from Lendology you can choose your own contractors* to carry out the work who can be paid directly once the completion of work is confirmed.

You can apply for an Energy Loan from Lendology to help spread the cost of installing energy-saving improvements over time.

  • Repayment term of between 6 months to 15 years. 

  • Fixed interest rate throughout the term of the loan and typical 4.2% APR
