Security officer John Howitt set out to give his home a facelift – and ended up making it cosier than ever.
An energy efficiency assessment was carried out at his three-bedroom home, which revealed it could benefit from external wall insulation.
He said:“The total price was £8000, but the Scottish government paid £4500. That left £3500 for us to pay back, interest free.”
John and his wife took the interest-free deal over five years, working out at repayments of around £59 a month.
