Local residents have been offered help with home improvements to stay warm this winter
Did you know that support is available for heating and insulation to stay warm during this recent cold spell?
Cold weather brings lots of challenges, but for some there are very real concerns about the costs of heating our homes.
The Hertfordshire Warmer Homes scheme is here to help. Run in partnership by the District and Borough councils and Hertfordshire County Council, the scheme can provide free or discounted household improvements such as insulation that will make homes easier and cheaper to heat.
The World Health Organisation recommends that safe indoor temperatures for older people, young children and those with a long-term health condition is 21°C (70°F) during the day and 18°C (64°F) at night.
For more information about the scheme, to check eligibility and to find out more about staying warm, call HertsHelp on 0300 123 4044 (local rate), email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit Herts Warmer Homes.
