Residents finding it difficult to pay their energy bills could be eligible for free practical help from Burnham & Weston Energy CIC’s new Home Energy Saving service.

Home energy advice and energy efficiency measures fitted

In response to the rise in the number of people who are struggling with energy costs and keeping their home warm, Burnham & Weston Energy CIC is offering free home visits from their qualified Home Energy Advisor. As well as help to use energy more efficiently in the home, residents can benefit from having new LED lightbulbs, draught excluders, radiator reflectors, and other small energy efficiency measures fitted.

Burnham & Weston Energy’s advisor will also be able to make sure people are accessing benefits to which they are entitled, debt and money advice where that will help, and, where possible, funding for bigger energy efficiency improvements to their home.

Burnham & Weston Energy CIC welcomes David Hynds to the team. As our new Home Energy Advisor, David is able to advise on all aspects of energy use in the home. This can help to maintain a warm, safe and healthy household environment.

In person, independent energy saving help that works for your household

Lynda Wookey, Director for Burnham & Weston Energy, said: “We know people in our communities are struggling to keep warm and pay their energy bills, so we’re delighted to welcome David Hynds to our team. As our expert Home Energy Advisor, Dave can visit people in their homes to provide tailored practical help. Having someone in front of you who can help can make a real difference, moreso than receiving advice over the phone and email. It’s also much easier than trying to find advice that works for you and your home on websites.”

Burnham & Weston Energy’s new Home Energy Advisor, David Hynds, adds: “Burnham & Weston Energy is not affiliated to any brand or particular energy saving product, so I’m free to offer independent advice and practical help that works best for each household. I’m trained to use a wide range of energy saving methods, can help you understand your fuel bills and calculate running costs of your heating and appliances like your fridge, washing machine and tv. I hope to help people maintain a warm, safe, and healthy home for themselves and their families.”
