Chilling reading, but 88 per cent of dwellings in Scotland have below-standard insulation and over a quarter of our homes suffer from dampness.

According to the latest Scottish House Condition Survey by Scottish Homes, families are paying too much to inefficiently heat their homes.

Now a new pounds 1.6 million energy- efficient development has opened at Nelson Street, Perth, predicting its heating bills will be HALF the Scottish average.

Built by Perthshire Housing Association, with pounds 1.3 million Scottish Homes' grant aid, 27 flats for rent are available, all with "sun spaces" - south-facing rooms attached to each flat which work like a conservatory. Contact the Association on 01738-441088.
