Housing Options Guide 3c

3c. Energy assistance

Making a private rental property more energy efficient will make it more attractive to new tenants.  It will also increase the rating on your property's Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) which will help your property meet minimum energy efficiency standards. 

An energy efficient home lowers the cost of bills, and a warm home to live in increases tenant satisfaction and reduces ill health as a result of cold and damp.

There are usually funding initiatives on the go that can help private landlords to make energy improvements.  Home Energy Scotland have an online tool that can be used to search for funding and support.  Their website provides information on interest free loans for a range of energy saving initiatives.  It also gives details of grant funding that can help with energy efficiency improvements such as new heating or insulation. 

You can find more information on how to get help with energy bills at mygov.scot.
