Age Cymru Sir Gar have launched a new Free Home Energy Check Service – ‘Helping Older People Stay Warm and Well this Winter’
Are you aged 50 or over?
Is your home cold and draughty? Or, are you worried about the cost of heating your home?
If yes, you may be eligible for a Free Home Energy Check!
Age Cymru Sir Gâr volunteers can help make your home warmer or reduce your energy bills by carrying out a free home energy check.
What happens during an energy check:
1) our handyperson volunteers will install simple energy efficiency equipment such as; draught excluder around doors and windows, fit new light bulbs and use remote control plug sockets and radiator panels which reflect heat back into the room and not into the wall.
2) Our volunteer will also give you some key tips and advice providing you with guides on how to keep warm and save energy.
3) Provide information on other support services provided by the charity, such as information on welfare benefits you might be entitled to and how to check what benefits these might be.
The free home energy check takes about 60-90 minutes and is carried out by our volunteer handyman.
FOR MORE INFORMATION PLEASE CALL Peter on 01554 784080 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Bethan Davies, Information Officer for Age Cymru Sir Gar said –
“We’ve had a number of people having an energy check go on to claim a benefit which they didn’t know they could have. A welfare benefit can mean the difference between choosing to heat or eat. “
