With a young family and working in an industry hit hard by the pandemic, musicians Nichola and her husband began to feel the financial strain of heating their home with an inefficient heating system.
A conversation with Home Energy Scotland found that they were eligible for support through the Scottish Government’s Warmer Homes Scotland programme.
Nichola said: “I’m a musician by trade and so is my husband. We’ve both been hit hard by the pandemic. We also have a young daughter at home.
“I began to claim Universal Credit which meant we were eligible for Warmer Homes Scotland support. We were referred and I have to say the process has been very slick.
“After an initial survey, we were eligible for a whole new heating system which included new radiators, pipework and an energy efficient boiler.
“The installation was clean and straightforward and I feel a lot more at ease heating my home.”
