Rutherglen Reformer - - Info.. Info.. Info.. -

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.
