Home Energy Scotland is a valuable source of free, impartial energy efficiency and government schemes advice.
There are five advice centres offering local support across Scotland, funded by the Scottish Government and managed by the Energy Saving Trust.
Community Liaison Officers offer home visits to vulnerable householders who might have difficulties using the free helpline, 0808 808 2282. They can also provide training for frontline staff, workshops, advice sessions at tenants’ events and tailored support.
Home Energy Scotland is not just for people interested in installing insulation or solar panels. It provides a range of support and advice, tailored to the enquirer’s needs. So if a person is living in a rental property and can’t make changes to the fabric of the building, it can provide energy saving tips and make sure they are referred for relevant help.
Anyone worried about their bills, struggling to heat their home or interested in becoming more energy efficient can benefit from the service. Contact Home Energy Scotland free on 0808 808 2282 or visit homeenergyscotland.org.
