Home Insulation Scheme
The Home Insulation Scheme is Scottish Government funded, endorsed by Fife Council, and delivered by the Energy Saving Trust. The Home Insulation Scheme has been operating in St Andrews since April and they will give you a free energy audit and advice on becoming more energy efficient. They can also offer advice and discuss funding options for renewable energy technologies (solar panels, wind energy, heat pumps and bio-mass boilers). In addition, you could find out if your home can benefit from loft and/or cavity wall insulation at specially negotiated prices. The insulation offers are as follows:
a. If you are on qualifying benefits or over 70 – it is free.
b. If you currently have between 60mm and 160mm of loft insulation then a top-up will be free to everyone*.
c. If you currently have no loft insulation or less than 60mm, it can be installed for £125*.
d. Cavity wall insulation can be installed for just £99*.
* Subject to survey.
The Home Insulation Scheme offers will only be available until the end of September 2010. The Energy Saving Trust is collaborating with STANDEN and where owners agree the Energy Saving Trust will provide their details to STANDEN so that our energy champions can follow up on the advice given through the Home Insulation Scheme. STANDEN will continue to work in collaboration with the Energy Saving Trust at the end of September when the Home Insulation Scheme ends, but we will not be able to offer free top-up insulation and all home owners are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the Home Insulation Scheme offers before the end of September 2010.
