Meet Toby

Toby replaced his electric storage heaters with an air source heat pump. Not only is his home now much cosier, but his energy bills have reduced too.

Toby used the Renewables Installer Finder to find an installer, and applied for an interest-free loan funded by the Scottish Government to cover the installation costs.

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.”
