The Hotspot insulation offer is still running – everyone in Portobello should have received a letter offering reduced price loft and cavity wall insulation, through the Energy Saving Scotland advice centre.
We have had several successful installations in houses and tenements across Portobello, and we’re sure it’s helping lots of people to stay warm in this icy weather.
Insulation can help to save lots of money on your bills, as well as reducing the carbon emissions from your home.
We hope as many folk as possible will take up this one-off deal. Insulation is free for those in receipt of certain benefits.Just call 0800 512 012 to arrange a free no-obligation survey for loft or cavity wall insulation.
The Hotspot insulation scheme uses accredited installers and is run by PEDAL in partnership with ESSac.

A third of all the heat lost in an un-insulated home is through the walls, and around a quarter goes through the roof. So cavity wall and loft insulation are effective ways to save both energy and money at home. For example, if your home has cavity walls, insulating them could save on average around £115 a year on your fuel bills.
If you live in a tenement, or if your home can’t take loft or cavity wall insulation, please contact us for advice on other ways you can do to save money and energy.
