Cold Living

Living in a cold home can be bad for your health. Consistently low temperatures in your home may exacerbate existing health issues (particularly respiratory and cardiovascular conditions) and make it harder for you to recover from illnesses. It can cause you and your family to feel miserable at home, effecting concentration, dexterity and mental health.

Residents can now contact Warm & Safe Wiltshire – the commitment from Wiltshire Council and Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service and their partners to help residents live in safer and healthier homes – and a one stop shop for all cold home and energy queries. The service provides free, impartial advice about keeping your home warm, understanding your heating system and energy bills, switching energy supplier, making energy saving improvements and a comprehensive home fire safety check where eligible. Energy advice can be given through home visits as well as over the phone.

Warm & Safe Wiltshire can help to improve energy efficiency in the home which can reduce fuel bills. The service can also advise on possible benefit entitlement and available grants such as the Warm Home Discount. Insulation is one of the best ways of lowering your energy bills and a new grant offer means that if you are a homeowner or privately-renting tenant in Wiltshire with a suitable property you can have cavity wall insulation installed in your home, free of charge – helping to make your home warmer and cheaper to heat. In some circumstances you may also be able to access grant funding to help with the cost of insulating your loft. All offers are subject to survey, funding availability and property suitability.

Please contact the team if you would like any advice or you know anyone who would benefit from a referral.
