With spring blossoming and summer on our doorstep, now is the time to give your home an inside-out appraisal. What can you do to keep your largest investment in good shape this year?
Southern Scotland's traditional stone-built houses may be beautiful to look at, but keeping them weatherproof and in their best condition can feel like a full-time job. Taking care of your sash windows, chimneys, doors and external fixtures can also be a challenge for properties with historic features. And if your home was built before 1919 and you’ve not had the full range of energy efficiency measures installed, you could be leaking money from your walls, roof, floors and windows every day.
Home Energy Scotland offers free, impartial energy efficiency advice from simple draught-proofing to insulation for all types of homes, as well as referrals for available funding.
Bring your specific questions to our panel of experts, including Moses Jenkins of Historic Environment Scotland who will be one of our speakers sharing expert advice on repairing your home and installing different types of insulation, glazing, draught-proofing and other measures in his presentation between 12.30-1pm . Notepads and pens will be provided and if you arrive between 12 and 12.30 you'll be welcomed with a free bowl of soup!
You can even get a free, impartial energy audit for your home from one of our qualified advisors so you understand all the options available to you.
What can I bring into the event?
Just yourself and your questions will be great! Bags may be checked on arrival. Notepads and pens will be provided and if you arrive between 12 and 12.30 you'll be welcomed with a free bowl of delicious soup.
