NEIGHBOURS - KEEP WARM & USE LESS ENERGY - FOR FREE!
Want to keep warm but save on your bills? Want to keep out draughts and be
more energy-efficient? Want
to do all this for free?
You can, just like more than 90 of your neighbours who’ve already signed up
to our Home Energy MOT scheme! We’ve now got some extra funding, meaning we
can extend the scheme and respond to requests from even more parish
households. Feedback to date is very positive. Here’s some examples;
“The visit was an
eye-opener in the sense that small adjustments can make a difference. The LED

The scheme offers a free service, involving a visit from a local, qualified,
experienced staff member from Marches Energy Agency who can
draught-proofing tape and strips for draughty windows and doors;
- fit draught
excluders to the bottom of doors to stop seepage of heat;
letter box covers to ensure warm air doesn’t escape;
LED long life, energy-efficient bulbs to replace older, short-life types;
electric socket timers, to ensure power’s only used when needed;
radiator reflector foil, ensuring all radiator heat warms your rooms;
boiler controls and radiator valves, to ensure they’re set correctly;
on the adequacy of your loft insulation levels, and;
- discuss more
targetted help, if needed, but only if you agree. .
All of this happens – or as much or little of it as you want – in one visit!
And it’s all entirely free to you.
