Together has announced that it has formed a partnership with Improveasy to help homeowners and landlords transform their properties into energy efficient homes.

Improveasy has been working alongside the Cheadle-based property lender, which has a loan book of £7billion. It has developed EPC Builder; a web-based portal which guides property owners through their retrofit journey from start to finish.

EPC Builder will recommend and install energy efficiency and renewable energy measures that customers need to build their EPC rating and save energy.

Improveasy has more than a decade of experience in assessing and improving energy efficiency of UK properties. It specialises in connecting customers with government and local authority grants.

The partnership has been announced today (June 5th) on World Environment Day, an international awareness-raising event which encourages people to change the habits affecting the environment, including climate change.

Ryan Etchells, chief commercial officer at Together, said: “At Together, we have made it our mission to provide education on the sustainability impact of a property’s EPC rating.

“This strategic partnership with Improveasy will provide a huge bonus for our customers, and could help reduce their bills, improve their carbon footprint, meet legislation, increase the property’s value and maybe even give access to more attractive financial products.

“Since 2011, Improveasy has been a market leader in green home improvement, with a focus on energy efficient and renewable technologies. When looking for who to partner with, they were the obvious choice.”

Austin Barcley, CEO at Improveasy said: “It is a huge achievement to be able to bring EPC Builder to Together’s customers. Our in-house team has extensive experience installing green home improvements such as insulation, heating, lighting and renewables.

“Our expertise, coupled with Together’s, will provide much needed support to homeowners and landlords, helping us all move towards a more sustainable future.”
