Scottish Government launches energy saving initiative to save consumers HEEPS when buying boilers

The option of an interest free loan has now become available to all home owners through HEEPs. The programme allows up to £3,000 to be borrowed for the cost of a new boiler.

Not only does HEEPs offer an interest free loan, but they have launched a great cash back scheme too. HEEPs allows cash back for properties undergoing efficient energy measures with council tax band rating between A-C and a brilliant incentive of £500 back when a new boiler is installed. Additional cash back is available too, such as £400 when insulation is carried out.

Firstcall Home Assist are a Scottish supplier who are Government registered and can provide new boilers and all the paper work to allow claims under the HEEPs scheme. Firstcall core policy that actively looks for ways to bring customers the most cost effective way to benefit from energy efficiency measures fits perfectly with the HEEPS scheme. The scheme means consumers don't have to miss out on the reduced costs that come from energy measures like insulation, new boilers, and renewables.
