When Gordon and his family were building their new home, they wanted to make it as energy efficient as possible.
Concerned about the future viability of gas, they installed an air source heat pump, alongside solar panels. Gordon applied for an interest-free loan, funded by the Scottish Government, to help cover the cost.
“The decision to install the heat pump and solar panels was definitely one worth making.”

Toby says “We couldn’t have installed without the Home Energy Scotland Loan. The assistance available from the Scottish Government was a real no-brainer.”
Ruth says “everyone who’s visited has been really impressed how warm the house is and that there’s constant hot water" and “my tenants love that the house is warm and cosy”.
David and Pauline
David and Pauline says they installed because “reducing our home’s total energy use just made sense. If you want to reduce your carbon emissions, heat pumps are great."
Jim, who switched to a ground source heat pump when his old oil system became unreliable, is impressed by its reliability, cost and energy efficiency. He says “I wouldn’t go back.”
