Free Helpline For Energy Advice
Posted on 5th April 2022 at 11:25
Are you worried about the rising cost of energy bills? A free and impartial helpline is available to help residents with advice.
Better Housing Better Health offers a central helpline, 0800 107 0044, to give impartial expert advice on reducing energy bills and improving the energy efficiency of the home.
Residents who call the helpline can have their needs assessed over the phone and, where eligible, can be referred for:
Energy bill discounts
Grants and funding for energy efficiency measures such as insulation or new heating systems
Access to other support services
Although a lot of services that the helpline offer is only available to vulnerable residents, any resident looking for advice is encouraged to call the helpline 0800 107 0044
If eligible, Better Housing Better can help
Fit a variety of free energy-saving measures in your home – such as draught-proofing, low-energy LED lightbulbs, radiator panels, and shower savers. These energy efficiency measures save the average household £30 a year on their energy bills.
Give you energy efficiency hints and tips and, if you have a heating controller, advice on how to set it to save energy.
Check to see if you are on the cheapest energy tariff and, if you are not on the best tariff, help you to change to a cheaper one. On average, a household can save £287 by switching their heating and electricity supply to the cheapest tariff.
Make a referral to a money advice specialist from an organisation called IncomeMax. This service can help householders access money through unclaimed benefits, grants, and other financial help.
The Better Housing Better Health (BHBH) service has been commissioned to help keep residents warm over winter and reduce their energy bills. In a preventative approach to health and wellbeing, the free-to-use helpline provides residents with a single point of contact for services, advice, and grants in order to help improve the energy efficiency of their property.
Please call the BHBH team on 0800 107 0044 (freephone) to check if you are eligible.
