Meet Philippa

Philippa installed an air source heat pump to reduce her home’s carbon footprint.

She applied for a Home Energy Scotland Loan funded by the Scottish Government to cover the costs.

Philippa was very impressed with how quick it was to install the heat pump system, which was installed in just two days.

Philippa says “we're really pleased to have been able to make such a significant step in reducing our carbon footprint".
