247 Home Rescue, Boiler Cover Specialists, Comment on Scotland's Green Homes Cashback Scheme.

Scotland, United Kingdom, June 07, 2014 --( Householders in Scotland can now receive grants of up to [pounds sterling]7,300 for energy efficiency home improvements, as the Green Homes Cashback Scheme has now opened up for applicants.

Some of the home improvements that can be funded through the scheme include the installation of new gas boilers, solid wall insulation, cavity wall insulation, double-glazing and draught-proofing.

Commenting on the initiative, Kevin Burke, spokesperson for boiler breakdown cover providers 247 Home Rescue (, said:

"Scottish homeowners living in cold and draughty houses with inefficient central heating systems should leap at the opportunity to receive such a large sum of money for energy efficiency improvements.

"These improvements will lead to long-term savings on gas and electricity bills - over a decade, recipients could find they have saved thousands of pounds. Solid wall insulation alone could save homeowners [pounds sterling]500 every year.

"Unfortunately, the initial costs involved in these kinds of home improvements can dissuade people from investing in energy efficiency. Schemes like this can give poorer households the ability to save huge sums of money and transform their home into a comfortable, cosy and green property.

"Scotland is already making great investments in renewable energy, and schemes like this further bolster the country's reputation as one of the greenest places on Earth."
