The scheme, which is part of the Scottish Government’s Warmer Homes Scotland program, can help keep your home comfortable and save you money on energy bills.

Let’s take a look at how to get free insulation for electric heated homes in Scotland.

Free insulation – all types available

The Scottish Government Program
The Scottish Government’s Warmer Homes Scotland program provides free and part-funded home insulation services to eligible households across the country.
This includes cavity wall insulation, loft insulation, and external solid wall insulation. To qualify for the program, you must own or rent your property and have an electric heating system installed.

There is also an income limit of £30,000 per year that applies to all applicants.

How it Works
Once you’ve determined that you meet the eligibility criteria for the Warmer Homes Scotland program, you’ll need to fill out an application form.
This will require information about yourself and the property in question (including details on your current heating system). Once your application has been approved by the SCOTTISH HOME HEATING AND INSULATION GRANTS. government, an assessor will come out to do a full survey of your home before any work begins.

They will be able to give you a more accurate idea of how much free insulation you could receive under the program as well as provide advice on other energy saving measures that could be implemented in your home.

The process

Once the assessment is complete and all necessary paperwork has been signed off on by both parties (the assessor and yourself), work can begin on installing the new insulation materials into your home. The whole process typically takes between one to two weeks from start to finish depending on what type of insulation needs done as well as any other energy saving measures being put into place during this time period such as draught proofing or window replacement.
After installation is complete and all paperwork has been signed off again, your home should now be much warmer than before!

Installing free insulation into electric heated homes in Scotland can not only make them more comfortable but also help reduce energy bills over time.
