Are you feeling cold this winter or struggling to pay for home heating?
The Suffolk Warm Homes Healthy People scheme may be able to help you make heating and energy improvements to your home this winter. We would like to offer you a free home energy survey carried out by an independent surveyor.
The survey will assess whether you qualify for FREE insulation, draught proofing or other energy efficiency measures. The independent surveyor will tell you what energy improvements you could benefit from and what offers are available to you. During the survey you will be advised on any quick and easy measures you can take to help reduce your fuel bills. If you are struggling to pay for home heating or having problems with your existing heating system then you may qualify for financial support. The scheme could also provide you with free use of a Temperature Sensor and Telecare Alarm Unit that raises an alarm if the temperature in your home gets too low.
You could qualify for the free survey if you own or privately rent your home and:
- someone living in the property is over 60 or under 5 years old or
- someone living in the property is in receipt of a disability or means tested benefit or
- the property is within Council Tax band A, B and C
To book a survey, all you have to do is call 08456 037 686 (Local rate- lines open between Monday-Friday 9 - 5pm). Survey appointments are available evenings and weekends, as well as during the day. So make this winter more comfortable by acting now.
The scheme is funded by the Department of Health and administered by your local authority and aims to make people warmer and healthier in their own homes.
