The energysavingtrust have been advertising on tv and delivering letters to Scottish households over the last few weeks and I'd advise people to take notice. There are serious offers available from free insulation to complete central heating systems. The free offers are dependent on many factors including your age and the condition of your house and associated heating and insulation etc. It's not all means tested and is on a first come first served basis with limited funding for each financial year.
I prefer our money going into these practical projects rather than into wasteful windfarms , solar farms and wave energy.
So don't ignore this chance of keeping cosy as we enter a new little ice age. You might just get general advice but you may be eligible for a spanking new combi boiler and new radiators.
UPDATE : Advertising on tv is directing people to this website....
