We are urging Midlothian residents to take advantage of our Free Insulation Offer before grants for loft and cavity wall insulation become a thing of the past.
Households throughout Midlothian are entitled to free cavity wall and loft insulation as part of a scheme funded through the Scottish Government's Universal Home Insulation Scheme (UHIS). Loft insulation can save households up to £175 per year in energy bills, while cavity wall insulation can save up to £135. Wherever you live in Midlothian you can now have these measures installed absolutely free.
Some local residents have reported visits from companies who are incorrectly claiming to be part of the current free insulation offer, which is being delivered exclusively by our appointed installer Carillion Energy Services in partnership with the social enterprise Changeworks.
We're also reminding residents to make sure that the person on your doorstep is working for Carillion or Changeworks - as with all doorstep callers it is important to check their ID and, if in any doubt, verify it by calling the advice centre for free on 0800 512 012 to confirm that they're meant to be working in the area.
To register an interest in this Free Insulation scheme, call the Energy Saving Scotland hotline on 0800 512 012.
