Thousands of households are being offered the opportunity to save up to £200 a year on their gas and electricity bills thanks to the Warmer West Sussex Scheme.
Warmer West Sussex is providing residents with a free home visit from a qualified energy expert to assess ways in which the energy efficiency of their homes can be improved to result in warmer homes, and to ensure they are receiving all the help they are entitled to.
The energy experts will also signpost residents to further help such as the Warm Front grant and the Crawley Wellbeing team.
During the visit the energy experts will install up to £99 worth of free energy saving devices into each property to help cut the cost of energy bills. These devices include draught-proofing, hot water tank jackets, energy monitors and radiator panels.
The energy expert will also assess whether the property is suitable for loft and cavity wall insulation, which the resident may be entitled to receive free of charge.
The scheme is only running until the end of March and places are limited. To book a free home visit or for more information call 0800 054 6815 or visit www.westsussexenergy.co.uk/warm
The Warmer West Sussex Scheme has been made possible after councils across the county were awarded more than half a million pounds by the Department of Health to help tackle fuel poverty and increase emergency response capacity during cold weather.
Councillor Lee Gilroy, Cabinet member for Housing, said: "Fuel bills are at an all time high and it's likely they are going to rise even further, so it's a really important time to take up these free home visits.
"I would really encourage residents to see our energy experts who will be able to identify ways in which you can keep your home warmer and fit some devices to reduce energy use."
