Event description

Description

Scotland's traditional stone-built houses may be beautiful to look at, but they’re not so much fun to live in during the colder months. If your home was built before 1919 and you’ve not had the full range of energy efficiency measures installed, you could be facing mounting heating bills this year.

Imagine how good it would feel to wake up to a warm home every morning, knowing it wasn’t costing you the earth to heat and without compromising any of its historic features.

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.

We’d like to invite you to a free 'Ask the Experts' event at the Western House Hotel in Ayr on Wednesday 7th February.

Moses Jenkins of Historic Environment Scotland will be one of our speakers sharing expert advice on installing different types of insulation, draught-proofing and other measures suitable for older and historic homes. We'll also have Dr Tanya Ewing, award-winning glazing specialist and entrepreneur, sharing her top tips for a cosy home and Brett Reynolds from Innasol presenting the benefits and drawbacks of renewable heating systems. Representatives from Planning Aid for Scotland (PAS) will also be on hand to advise you on new projects and planning considerations.

All presentations will take place between 12.30 and 2.30pm and our Home Energy Scotland advisors will be available until 4pm for specialist advice on your particular circumstances. Notepads and pens will be provided and if you arrive between 12 and 12.30 you'll be welcomed with a bowl of warming soup.

If your property is cold, damp or difficult to heat, mark February 7th on your calendar and come along for some expert funding advice plus free takeaway tips on how to keep your home cosy and save money this winter. You can also enter a free prize draw with a chance to win £250 in B&Q vouchers.
