Energycare Home Improvements Ltd enables you to manage your home improvements budget in a flexible and convenient way.
When it comes to funding your home improvement, we understand that our customers appreciate flexibility, such as being able to make additional payments as and when you can afford it and controlling the life of the loan. That's why Energycare has teamed up with one lender to provide funding solutions that give you control - control over the life of the loan and, more importantly, the amount of interest charged on such loans. We work with Shermin Finance (UK) Plc to provide loans with an exclusive discount when you open an account.
Energycare Home Improvements Ltd, which is the trading name of Energycare Home Improvements Ltd is a credit broker and not a credit lender.
We can provide loans for a period of 8, 10 or 15 years, depending on the product and lender. Whilst you commit to making a minimum monthly repayment, we know that many customers like the flexibility to clear their loan early, so you can make extra payments as and when you please. This will then reduce the number of repayments and the amount of interest you would otherwise pay. As with most funding, there would be an early settlement charge if you settle the account in full, which would be no more than two months' interest on the outstanding balance. The choice is yours to settle at any time – you should contact your lender directly to obtain a settlement figure.
The Account is a reducing balance loan.
Interest is charged on the outstanding balance only.
Increasing your payments reduces the interest you would otherwise pay.
How much might it cost?
