Homes can lose heat easily if they aren’t properly insulated, over 50% of the heat is lost through the roof and walls.
Energy is expensive, so one of the best ways you can save money and stay warm into the bargain is to insulate your home.
Discounted and even free insulation offers available for you through a range of offers funded by the Scottish Government or through energy companies. Some offers depend on where you live while others are open to anyone across Scotland.
You could save anywhere from £30 a year with simple draught-proofing to more than £175 with loft insulation. If your home is older or has cavity walls, you may be able to save even more.
To find out more about free or discounted insulation that might be available to you, and other ways you can make your home warmer this winter, visit the energy saving trust website or your local councils website.
