- Boiler upgrades (gas, oil and LPG)
- Central heating systems

- Cavity wall insulation
- External wall insulation
Councillor David Watson, portfolio holder for the environment, said: “The Council’s Home Energy team are there to support local people; especially those who struggle to keep their properties warm or receive high fuel bills, taking advantage of the Government’s Energy Company Obligation (ECO) scheme.
“Winter can be a particularly harsh time with many struggling to keep warm and afford their energy bills as they rise over winter.
“The Home Energy team provides free and impartial advice to residents on ways to reduce their fuel bills, keep warm over the winter months and also provide a number of schemes for both insulating and heating homes.
“I would urge residents struggling through the winter to get in touch with the team and see what they can offer.”
