HEEPS: Warmer Homes Scotland Scheme

Who is the scheme for?

Warmer Homes Scotland is designed to help vulnerable people make their homes warmer and more comfortable by installing a range of energy saving measures. The Scottish Government is offering assistance to homeowners and private sector tenants struggling to heat their home, who have lived in their property for at least twelve months, and who meet the qualifying criteria. 

What support is available?

The measures offered will depend on a survey of the property. If you have had assistance through a government programme before, you can still apply for Warmer Homes Scotland if you meet the qualifying criteria. Assessors will recommend measures suitable for the property, including a range of insulation and heating measures, and in most cases, costs will be met by the Scottish Government. There will be a need for customer contributions in some instances for certain more expensive measures, such as solid wall insulation.
Potential measures include:

  • Wall insulation
  • Loft insulation
  • Draught-proofing
  • Central heating
  • Renewables
