PEOPLE looking for advice on how to stay warm in their homes and cut energy bills this winter are being encouraged to visit the Scottish Government's Home Energy Scotland Roadshow which rolls into Dumbarton tomorrow (Wednesday).
With research showing two out of three Scottish lofts currently don't have enough insulation, and that around 2,490 homes in East Dunbartonshire could be eligible for free insulation, advisors from the Home Energy Scotland Hotline will highlight to shoppers at ASDA how the correct level of insulation can help avoid costly energy loss.
Using thermal imaging technology, advisors will demonstrate to passers by where heat is lost from the body in a bid to prompt them into thinking about how heat is lost from their home, and what they can do to help keep the heat in. Supporting the Scotland wide roadshow, Alex Neil, cabinet secretary for Loft insulation alone can help people save up to �175 a year in energy bills, as well as helping the environment by creating greener homes, and one call to the Hotline could result in free insulation being provided.
People looking for advice on keeping their homes warm this winter can call the Home Energy Scotland Hotline on 0800 512 012 or visit homeenergyscotland.org.uk.
