Did you know there’s a scheme in Wales that offers a package of free home energy efficiency improvements?

That could mean a new boiler, central heating or insulation to help keep you and your family warm and lower your energy bills at the same time.

Make sure you know about changes to Covid-19 restrictions in Wales

The scheme is operated by “Nest – Making Wales Cosy” and funded by the Welsh Government. It’s aimed at low income households and those living in deprived areas across Wrexham and Wales.

But don’t worry if you’re not eligible for free energy improvements because they also offer excellent advice for making savings.

This is a great energy efficiency scheme

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “This is a great energy efficiency scheme and people should be making the most of all the support that’s available. The service is free and confidential and will help residents stay warm and reduce their energy bills at the same time.

“For some this will come as a relief as they struggle during the winter months to keep their family warm whilst struggling to pay energy bills so please make the call and see what help you are eligible for.”

You could be eligible for free energy efficiency improvements if:

  • You own your home or rent from a private landlord (not Council or Housing Association)
  • Your home is energy inefficient and expensive to heat
  • You or someone you live with receives a means tested benefit OR has a chronic respiratory, circulatory or mental health condition and an income below defined thresholds (full health based criteria information is available here)

Homes across Wales are already benefitting from the scheme and your home could be the next to benefit 🙂
