Funds to warm Midlothian homes

A MIDLOTHIAN insulation scheme has received additional investment to allow it to continue until next year.

The county will receive up to £520,000 as part of the Universal Home Insultation Scheme (UHIS).

The scheme, administered by local authorities, offers a range of free home insulation measures including loft and cavity wall insulation.

These measures can help households improve their energy efficiency, keep heating bills down and reduce fuel poverty.

If you are interested in applying for free home insulation, you can book a free, no-obligation survey by contacting the Home Energy Scotland Hotline free on 0800 512 012.
