Act now for a warmer home – with available help from the Warm Home Discount, free advice line and energy saving packs. Jan 18, 2024

With the sub zero temperatures gripping the country, households have been urged to check and register if they are eligible for the Warm Home Discount from the Government before 29 February.

The Warm Homes Discount is available from the Government and is a £150 discount rebate on energy bills to households who are most at risk of fuel poverty. Most of the eligible households will automatically receive the energy bill support. But some households who would have already received an initial letter, will need to confirm their details before the end of February.

West Yorkshire energy experts YES Energy Solutions is on hand to help households during the cold weather to save money on their energy bills with their UK wide free Warmer Homes Advice Line to combat the cold.

The company is also offering completely free home visits exclusively to people living in West Yorkshire, to provide tailored in-person expert advice for households.

The growing team of friendly energy experts answering the queries on the YES Warmer Homes Advice Line can offer help and advice on staying warm and saving money. By calling the line, households can get easy tips and confidential advice to help, as well as discover free funding opportunities for home improvements for insulation, new boilers and more. Since the advice line launched in early 2023 the team have helped hundreds of households across the UK and YES as a company has helped over 10,000 people in the last three years alone. The free funding comes from government, local authority and energy company obligation schemes to help as many people as possible to have a warm home this winter, meaning every household - both homeowners and renters - can get the advice from the YES team of energy experts.

The team at YES Energy Solutions has also curated a completely free energy saving pack filled with simple tips, practical tools, and useful gadgets, designed to both help families make their homes more energy-efficient and help cut down energy costs. So far, the community company has given away over 4,500 packs up and down the country. Residents are urged to text ADVICE to 82228 or call 03301 359 110 to receive their pack and get tailored support.

Duncan McCombie from YES Energy Solutions, says, "It’s tough out there, and we understand the huge challenges posed by high energy prices and the cost-of-living crisis across the county. If you’re struggling with your bills or just want some help getting to grips with your energy use ready for the winter, we’re here for you. We want to help people understand how they can manage their bills and access funding which could include free financial support for loft insultation or a new boiler. Our support means people and families will improve their energy efficiency in their homes and improve their household budget for the longer-term.”

“We’ve invested over £200,000 into creating a free advice line, accessible to all, to help more people be warmer and help make their bills more affordable. Our service is completely free because we’re a community company established to assist families, not to generate profits.
