Warmer homes project benefits almost 2,500 properties in Glasgow

ALMOST 2,500 homes in the more deprived parts of Glasgow have had energy-efficiency measures (mainly external wall insulation) fitted to them, during the last financial year, 2021-22.

And many more are sure to follow, following a decision by the local authority (as noted, here) to waive the usual cost of £1,500 per property (for external wall insulation) during this financial year.

This financial year, the programme is costing an estimated £6.437million, being paid for from the Scottish Government’s Energy Efficient Scotland: Area Based Schemes programme.

Among selected areas are Balornock, Barmulloch, Corkerhill, Craigend, Easterhouse, Knightswood, Townhead/Drygate and Westercommon. Homes there will receive either external wall insulation, internal wall insultation, or electric storage space and water heating controls.
