Free Home Energy Checks – How Age UK BRWF can help

Published on 13 December 2022 06:44 PM

Following the receipt of funding, Age UK Bromsgrove, Redditch & Wyre Forest is now able to offer free Home Energy Checks for the over 50s living in North Worcestershire who are finding it difficult to keep their homes warm this winter.

As part of the Energy Check:

  • One of Age UK’s Bromsgrove, Redditch & Wyre Forest’s handypersons will visit your home at a time that is convenient for you
  • During the free assessment they will check the temperature inside your home and whether there are any draughts. They will inspect your heating system and any insulation measures you have
  • Depending on the outcome of the assessment the handyperson will fit appropriate energy saving equipment, such as energy saving lightbulbs, reflective panels behind the radiator, socket timers and night lights free of charge
  • The handyperson will also offer you some practical tips on how you can save energy and keep you fuel bills down without compromising on the warmth of your house. They may also inform you of other Age UK services available in North Worcestershire

The check will take between 60 and 90 minutes

Please note that although this service is FREE, availability is LIMITED. To avoid disappointment and to book an appointment, please call our team on 01527 570490 (Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm).
