Heating bills giving you a cold shiver? Home Energy Scotland is here to help save the day. It provides free and impartial advice on saving energy, staying warm and cosy in the home this winter and beyond, all while cutting your bills at the same time. 

Staying cosy doesn’t have to mean cranking up the heating - there are plenty of alternatives ways to stay warm (check out the Home Energy Scotland page) and we’d love to hear all your tips on the small or clever things you do. We’re on the hunt for the most creative ways of getting cosy in the home this winter with our new social media competition. The winner will get their hands on the latest smart technology which helps you control your energy usage, and most importantly, your bills. 

Could it be yours?

You could be in with the chance of winning a Hive 2 with professional installation included. 

To get involved all you have to do is comment on the Hive competition posts on our Facebook or Twitter pages and tell us about your most creative ways to stay cosy during winter months. Tell us about your favourite pair of woolly socks that were knitted by your fine self, or maybe you’ve got a special recipe to keep all the family warm?
