All it takes is one call to the Home Energy Scotland hotline (0808 808 2282) to find out if you qualify for help. And no matter what your circumstances, our expert advisors are there to give personalised advice to everyone on how to make homes more energy efficient.

One person who has benefitted from help from the Scottish Government, through the hotline is Mr Anderson, 67, from Hilton Avenue, Aberdeen.

Mr Anderson commented: “When my boiler packed in and the guy said he couldn’t fix it, I was worried as they are very expensive. I spoke to my brother-in-law who mentioned that he had managed to get a free boiler from the Scottish Government. I decided to ring Home Energy Scotland to see if I was eligible. They came around and did a few surveys and 60 days later I got a new boiler. It’s been just great – I had the best winter ever last year and Home Energy Scotland saved me a few bob.”

To find out the kind of home energy assistance you could be eligible for – whatever your circumstances – call the Scottish Government’s Home Energy Scotland hotline now on 0808 808 2282 or go to homeenergyscotland.org
