Making your home more efficient and finding professional tradesmenBy Pad Partners Ltd
Homely's easy-to-use calculator suggests ways to make your home more efficient. It walks you through the pros and cons of the grants and schemes available to people in your area, and will help you find professional tradesmen you can trust.
The service is free for homeowners. Revenue comes from energy efficiency professionals who pay a small "finder's fee" to get in touch with potential customers.
In the past these companies have used cold-callers to find customers, but too often this ends up with bamboozled people who aren't sure what they're signing up for. Homely puts homeowners back in charge.
Homely was started by two friends who met when studying at Imperial College. Their professional backgrounds include working for housing associations, architecture, design and engineering companies, a university and a think-tank.
Homely was born in 2012 when it was chosen by Bethnal Green Ventures for investment and mentoring.
