Tips on becoming energy efficient
Home Energy Scotland (HES) is a free and impartial advice service for homeowners and landlords that is funded by the Scottish Government.
There is a network of advice centres that provide guidance on a range of options to improve the warmth and energy efficiency of residential properties in Scotland.
They advise on the small day to day changes people can make to reduce their energy consumption and the bigger steps such as improving insulation, upgrading the heating system or taking advantage of domestic renewables.
They can also provide advice on whether homeowners or landlords qualify for any of the national or area-based schemes that are designed to help tackle fuel poverty and improve energy efficiency.
Advisors are available Monday to Friday from 8am to 8pm and Saturday 9am to 5pm on 0808 808 2282.
During 2016 there were over 80,000 calls to the Home Energy Scotland helpline.
