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.
