Don’t suffer the cold – act now!

Back

As we fast approach the winter months, October is the time where many of us turn the heating on ready for a cosy warm evening at home. But for others, the winter months are a test of how to keep warm while rationing the usage of heating to keep costs to a minimum.

Last winter, a quarter of 65-year olds rationed their energy usage in order to afford their energy bills.

A recent article by the Yorkshire Post revealed over the last five years, more than 168,000 people died as a result of fuel poverty, while an additional 36,000 were as a result of conditions relating to living in a cold home.  In addition to this, the UK has the sixth-worst long-term rate of winter mortality out of 30 European countries.  

For those councils where Better Homes Yorkshire is a partner, there are options available to help those suffering from fuel poverty. From insulation solutions to full central heating, contact us today to see how we can help.
