Aberdeen residents to get free insulation

2010-10-28 14:43:00

Residents of Aberdeen are to receive funding and help to increase the insulation in their homes.

Some 8,000 people are expected to benefit from the scheme, which will open tomorrow at Nigg Golf Club. The event will be attended by MSP for Aberdeen South, Nicol Stephen, along with Aberdeen City Council’s domestic energy officer Kevin Christie, who is to give residents an overview of what the scheme involves.

The Aberdeen Universal Home Insulation Scheme is being funded by a £500,000 grant from the Scottish Government and the offer of better insulation is expected to save householders in the region as much as £218,611 in total each year. Carbon dioxide emissions could also fall by up to 1,369 tonnes.

Anyone living in the Aberdeen region who uses an oil boiler to heat their home may be able to cut emissions and reduce bills even further by having their boiler regularly serviced. Signing up to the Team Energy boiler maintenance scheme provides peace of mind and prevents boilers from breaking down.

In addition, a well serviced boiler usually runs more efficiently and more cleanly than a boiler that has not been serviced for some time.
