Even though spring is here, you may be in the market to upgrade your home for the purpose of saving energy. You can be sure there will be another cold spell coming. If you live in Canada you may be eligible for installation costs for air conditioning or for heat pumps. In the UK you may be eligible for grants to upgrade your heating and insulation if you’re over sixty. And similarly, in the U.S. seniors are eligible for grants to make improvements in their energy efficiency. For many seniors in the States and Canada there are grants available for home repairs as well. A home in good repair is a home that retains value and that means a great deal, especially to those of us on fixed incomes.
