Fifers are being urged to act now to cut their bills and make their homes warmer as part of a Scottish Government campaign to encourage people to call the Home Energy Scotland Hotline.

A one-stop shop for advice and support, the hotline is there to help Scots keep warm this winter and beyond.

Around a third of Scottish households have been offered advice by the hotline since it started, and it is the only source of clear and impartial advice on how to make your home cheaper to heat.

Everyone can get help from the hotline; it is not just for the disadvantaged or elderly.

As well as receiving money-saving energy advice, households may be eligible to receive money towards the cost of replacing their old, inefficient boiler with a new model, which could also cut hundreds of pounds off their fuel bills. Many are also in line for free loft and cavity wall insulation.

To find out exactly what you are eligible for - whatever your circumstances - call the Home Energy Scotland Hotline now on 0808 808 2282 or go to www.homeenergyscotland.org.uk
