This project proposes to deliver energy efficiency improvements to 106 houses, of which 46 are Council properties and 57 are owner occupiers.
These properties are of non-traditional construction that tend to have poorer thermal performance overall.
A total of 103 properties will have external wall insulation and 3 stone built properties will be assessed for internal wall insulation. In addition to this loft insulation measures will be taken to help improve the energy efficiency for the properties. All Council properties will also be provided with new soffits, gutters and downpipes.
This project aims to tackle fuel poverty and help address the health and education challenges associated with fuel poverty. Energy efficiency advice and support will be provided by specialised Energy Efficiency Officers.
All work will be carried out by Everwarm using local labour and suppliers where practical.
Our Home Energy Advice & Liaison Officer has visited owner occupiers to explain the benefits and establish provisional interest. For owner occupiers to receive Scottish Government funding they will require to sign up to this initiative on or before 31 January 2018. Interest free loans are available from the Scottish Government to assist with this.
