Energy Advice

What's on offer
  • A free home energy check
    • This short survey will check how energy efficient your home is and suggest practical changes and improvements. It can help you save money by reducing the amount of energy you use in your home. It can be done over the phone.
  • Who is this for?
    • Everyone. Whether you are working, retired or receiving benefits we can provide free energy advice to you. Call Home Energy Scotland on 0808 808 2282 for your own free personalised home energy check.

More money in your pocket

What's on offer

A benefit and tax credit check, and access to the lowest-cost energy rates from your energy supplier.

Many people miss out on money they are entitled to from benefits and tax credits - just because they don't know it's there. We can help find out if this applies to you. Some people discover they can get as much as £1,500 extra per year.

Energy suppliers also offer some people discounted energy rates. Home Energy Scotland can advise about any discounts that may be available to help you pay less for the energy you use.

Who this is for?

Everyone may be eligible depending on circumstances. Call Home Energy Scotland now on 0808 808 2282 for personalised advice.

If you are 60 or over and would like help to fill in the forms call Home Energy Scotland on 0808 808 2282.

Energy efficiency measures

What's on offer

Home Energy Efficiency Programmes (HEEPs) funded by energy companies or the Scottish Government to make your home warmer and cheaper to heat, for example heating systems such as central heating or a new boiler, and loft and cavity wall insulation.

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a energy efficiency scheme devised by the UK Government to help tackle fuel poverty. Recent changes to this (known as ‘Flexible Eligibility’) have allowed local councils to set criteria to assist those who are struggling with energy bills or who (because of health issues) are vulnerable to the effects of living in a cold home.   

The accompanying document outlines our statement of intent in relation to accessing ECO Flexible Eligibility funding, working with contractors and identify households which can have energy efficiency improvements installed under this scheme.
