“Homegrade responds to a wide variety of requests. People contact us with questions about energy and about property, town planning, acoustics, renovation and housing in general. Most of the subjects raised concern grants, be it for renovation work or energy, which account for about 50 % of the requests. But we also answer technical questions and queries about regulations.
We always stress that our approach is characterised by integrated advice, i.e. advice that takes account of the person’s situation as a whole. For example, if someone comes and asks us about heating grants, we will answer the question, but also tell them about the EPB legislation, technical aspects and the need for insulation.
The advice given by Homegrade remains entirely neutral. This is an important argument for the people who call on us.”
