Call us on 0808 808 2282 for free, impartial advice on having a warmer home

55% of what is spent on energy in Scotland goes towards heating. So it's a topic all homeowners should think about. 

A warmer home with lower fuel bills is a combination of how efficiently you create heat in your home and how long you can keep that heat in the house.

Creating heat more efficiently can be achieved by having an energy efficient boiler, good quality radiators and heating controls (plus, knowing how to use them properly).

Once you've created that heat, you don't want it disappearing out the walls and roof before you have had the chance to benefit from it. Through insulation, draft-proofing and upgrading your glazing, you can make sure your home stays warmer for longer.

For free and imparticial advice on what you can do in your own home, contact Home Energy Scotland on 0808 808 2282. They will also be able to advise you on what financial support is available to make these changes.
