Energy efficiency advice and keeping your home warm

Advice on energy efficiency and your options if you have heating issues or struggle to keep warm as a home owner or tenant.

Presently the scheme can offer energy efficiency advice and may be able to help home owners access replacement gas boilers or heating repairs.  If you are in receipt of a benefit and/or have a heat related illness you may be able to get some assistance through the Responders to Warmth Scheme.

This is an initiative to help residents and businesses save money on their energy bills by negotiating better deals for gas and electricity.

Community Lincs launched its Collective Oil Buying Scheme for domestic heating oil in January 2012.  The scheme aims to save members money by bringing communities together to make the most of their joint buying power so reducing the price of oil and passing the benefit on to the scheme's members.

The scheme is open to households, businesses and community organisations that use oil to heat their homes and premises.

The Home Heat Helpline (0800 33 66 99) is a free, impartial and confidential service that connects people on low incomes or in poor health with financial help and practical advice on managing their energy bills. The help available includes rebates, grants for insulation and new boilers, and advice on saving energy.
