"Promotional" financing programs aren't the answer for many consumers faced with expensive energy or other home improvements.
Many financing options, even those that appear to be low fixed rates, are really credit card-type programs that can turn into 25 or 30% interest rates after the promotional term or if you are a few days late with your payment. And smart consumers understand that the cost of subsidizing "zero percent" or other artificially low rates for longer term unsecured financing may result in a higher price for the product (somebody has to pay for it!). Sometimes, your utility or state may subsidize the program which does not add to the cost to you, so make sure to check out those programs.
The National Energy Improvement Fund's simple, transparent and fair financing means the rate is locked in for the term and not subject to change like many credit products offered through retailers or manufacturers.
