Free advice to keep warm and well this winter23 January 2018
Are you worried about your winter fuel bills? Then come along to one of our free energy advice surgeries taking place in Wyre Forest.
Energy experts Act on Energy will be back to offer impartial advice to help keep you warm and well at Bewdley Library on Thursday 25 January from 9.30am till 1pm. On the same day rural residents will have the opportunity to speak to an energy advisor when the mobile library visits Dunley, Callow Hill and Rock between 10am and 2.40pm.
Residents can drop in for advice (no need to book) on a range of energy issues such as information on making your home more energy efficient, impartial advice on gas and electricity bills and switching tariffs, advice on heating systems, information about grants for insulation and boilers, and advice on smart meters.
Additional energy advice surgeries roll into March 2018. For further dates and venues please visit www.wyreforestdc.gov.uk/warmandwell
Councillor Chris Rogers, Wyre Forest District Council's Cabinet Member for Housing, Health and Well-being said:
“I’m delighted that the popular advice surgeries have returned. In a typical British home, one third of the heat produced by central heating systems is lost through the roof, walls and windows. This means that, in a poorly insulated home, £1 out of every £3 spent is wasted.
“These free advice sessions offer residents a range of invaluable advice on ways to cut their energy bills, help with heating and insulation and by making sure they’re on the best tariff.”
Residents can also call Act on Energy on 0800 988 2881 for free and impartial advice on energy issues.
