Spring is nearly here – and the change of season is one of the best and most popular times of year for home improvements. Home upgrading is a trend which has seen somewhat of a surge in popularity in recent years – and for good reason with so many of us spending a lot more time at home.

Many households planning on renovating their home understandably would not have this spare cash to hand. It can be tempting for them to fund the planned renovations through the credit card. However, with the high levels of interest charged, even if you clear the minimum balance, this can end up being a very pricey decision. For the cost-conscious home improver – a credit union loan is the best option, and are often approved very quickly.

A recent ILCU survey found that of those needing to borrow to fund their renovations, six in ten said they would use their local credit union.

Liam Flannery Head of Lending for Athlone Credit Union explains why a credit union home improvement loan is a solid choice for those wanting to renovate their home without incurring unnecessary debt.
