Building a greener Society
Ecology Building Society is a natural partner for GreenMoves.com as it specialises in green mortgages for properties that benefit the environment. So if you are purchasing an eco-home or making energy efficiency improvements and need to borrow some money, contact the Ecology first – we have been providing green mortgages for green properties for over 25 years.
Our mortgages are available for:
- Newly built eco-homes
- Timber framed and clad properties
- Homes built using sustainable materials such as straw bale, cob, mud block, wattle & daub
- The installation of energy saving measures and renewable energy technology
- Live/Work units.
We also lend on eco self builds and properties that require renovation or conversion – basically any property that is energy efficient or can be made more energy efficient.
Ecology mortgages – great value
Our mortgages offer great long term value and our 10 year residential mortgage won us 3rd Best Value Building Society and 6th Best Value Lender in the 2006 What Mortgage Awards.
Other features of our mortgages include:
- Low fees – our mortgage application fee is only £150
- The ability to overpay up to 10% of the mortgage balance each month – without penalty
- Daily interest – interest is calculate each day based on the outstanding balance so you benefit immediately from increased repayments
- No Higher Lending Charges

…plus our C-Change mortgage discount
Any funds borrowed for specified energy saving measures and renewable energy technologies (such as timber-framed double or triple glazing or ground source heat pumps) benefit from a 1% discount off the Ecology’s Standard Variable Rate, as soon as the works are completed.

YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE
GreenMoves are pleased to have the support of Knauf Insulation.
The two best ways to reduce the amount of energy a home uses are:
- Install cavity wall insulation
- Lay insulation in your loft.
In doing so you will drastically reduce the harmful CO2 emissions caused by your home’s energy consumption. Both types of insulation can have a dramatic effect. A correctly insulated home can reduce fuel bills by as much as £150 per year (depending on your house size) and once it’s in place it lasts a lifetime. Imagine feeling the benefits of a warmer, cosier, more comfortable home that costs less to run and is kind to the environment. To achieve this, all we have to do is Thinksulation.
Knauf have teamed up with the Energy Savings Trust to launch an initiative called Thinksulation. Its aim is to promote the benefits of insulation in terms of:
- Environmental Impact
- Cost savings
