A FUNDING programme to help households improve the energy efficiency of their homes is to receive an £18m boost.

Says a Scottish Government announcement, here: “People are being urged to seek support and advice from Home Energy Scotland to help make their homes warmer and reduce their heating bills, on average by up to £300.

“Financial support worth up to £5,000 is also available to make homes more energy efficient through improvements like home insulation, double glazing or a new heating system.

“Home Energy Scotland also supports households with practical advice and, where appropriate, install energy efficient measures – making homes more energy efficient and savings householders money.”
