Warm Homes Project in the Scottish Borders

Helping to warm homes in the Scottish Borders

Warmworks has received funding from Affordable Warmth Solutions’ Warm Homes Fund to install energy-saving improvements in just under 150 homes in the Scottish Borders, in partnership with three local Housing Associations: Waverley, Eildon and Berwickshire.

The project will install air source heat pumps, which are a renewable form of domestic heating technology, alongside robotically applied underfloor insulation, using Q-Bot technology.

The project aims to make homes warmer and more energy efficient over the longer term, as well as reducing householders’ reliance on fossil fuels and traditional sources of heat. The project will also provide valuable insights into how this technology can be used effectively in this sector as we move towards lower carbon technologies for heating homes.

Warmworks is working alongside three Housing Associations to deliver the project, each of whom will identify properties within their housing stock to be upgraded. An overview of each Housing Association has been provided below.

Waverley Housing
Waverley Housing is a Registered Social Landlord operating throughout the central Scottish Borders.
Berwickshire Housing Association

How are participants selected?

The project will not be led by applications and householders will not be expected to apply.  The project will target properties owned by each Housing Association and that have been specifically identified as potentially suitable for this project.

If you live in the Scottish Borders, in a home managed by one of the Housing Associations involved in this project, you can contact us on whp_enquiries@warmworks.co.uk for more information.

It is anticipated that the project will last approximately one year.
