Green Heating Solutions

With winter just around the corner you may want to make the switch to a more affordable source of heating.  For example a heat pump or wood-fuelled boiler may provide a better heating solution for you.  Not only is it kinder to the environment it can also make a difference to your energy costs potentially saving you hundreds of pounds each year

There is a range of financial support available:

  • Interest-free loans of up to £10,000 from the Scottish Government, with a payback of 8 years;
  • Grants of up to £1,250 from the UK Government.

This could mean that your upfront costs are either mostly or even totally covered, for example, if you bought an air source heat pump for £9000 you could claim an £850 grant towards the cost of the system plus a £8,150 interest free loan!

In addition to this, you may be able to earn cash from your heating system through the UK Government’s Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive scheme, subject to meeting the eligibility criteria.  This scheme should be available from summer 2013.

The Energy Saving Scotland advice centre is holding an Energy Exhibition on Saturday 27th October at the Cairndale Hotel in Dumfries to showcase energy efficiency and renewable technologies. There will be exhibitors showing the latest technologies to not only make your home cosier, but to provide heat and power using alternatives to traditional fuels.   Come along and talk to our advisors between 10.30am and 3.00pm to find out more about the financial and practical support on offer.
