With more people spending more time at home over the past 18 months due to coronavirus, energy usage has been greater than ever. But help is out there, and Home Energy Scotland want to be able to support even more people to make energy saving improvements to their home.
Did you know that a home that isn’t well insulated can lose more than 50% of its heat through its roof and walls so making improvements can help your finances and make your home more energy efficient, comfortable and cheaper to heat while helping lower emissions in Scotland?
Home Energy Scotland provides clear and impartial advice to make your home warmer. The one-stop-shop for support is funded by Scottish Government and de-livered by Energy Saving Trust. Calls are free to 0808 808 2282 or vis-it www.homeenergyscotland.org/contact to request a call back.
The Scottish Government has made an additional £18 million available this year to help householders install energy efficient measures and reduce their heating bills, bringing the total support available through Home Energy Scotland to £50 million in 2021-2022.
People are being urged to seek support and advice now from Home Energy Scot-land to help make their homes warmer and reduce their heating bills, which can on average be up to £300.
Financial support worth up to £5,000 is also available to make homes more energy efficient through improvements like home insulation, draught proofing or a new heating system.
Home Energy Scotland also supports households with practical advice and, where appropriate, install energy efficient improvement – making homes more energy efficient and saving householders money.
