Press Release:
Up to £6000 Scottish Government Cashback for Solid Wall Insulation now available

Release Date 02 June 2014

Following today's launch by the Scottish Government of its new Green Homes Cashback scheme, the National Insulation Association (NIA) is urging Scottish householders to contact its members to take advantage of the scheme to upgrade their property's energy efficiency and be able to claim up to £6000 for Solid Wall Insulation (SWI).

Under the new phase of Green Homes Cashback Scottish householders can apply for:

- 75% of the cost of Solid Wall Insulation up to a maximum of £6000, and;

- Up to £1200 for a range of other recommended energy efficiency measures, from within three categories including cavity wall insulation, loft insulation and draught proofing.

- Up to £100 refund for their Green Deal Assessment Report if at least one recommended measure is installed

Neil Marshall, Chief Executive of the NIA commented: "By installing SWI savings of up to £460* per year can be made on fuel bills and £250* per year from CWI. Loft Insulation can also save up to £250* per year and Draught-proofing windows and doors can save between £35 and £50* per year and when installed with other measures will greatly increase the comfort in a home.

"We welcome this new cashback scheme which makes home insulation even more affordable and we are urging householders in Scotland to contact their local NIA member to find out if their home requires additional insulation and for details of the Green Homes Cashback scheme."

Householders can be safe in the knowledge that an NIA member will have signed up to a strict Code of Professional Practice, meaning peace of mind comes as standard.

To find a local NIA member and details on the Green Homes Cashback scheme, householders and landlords in Scotland should visit the NIA website or call 08451 636363.
