More Free Energy Saving Equipment Available for Darlington Over 50s

Posted on Monday, 20 January 2020 3:41 pm | Category: Darlington Age UK North Yorkshire & Darlington has funding to provide an additional 50 homes with free energy-saving equipment for over 50s in Darlington

Local Charity Age UK North Yorkshire & Darlington has funding to provide an additional 50 homes with free energy-saving equipment for over 50s in Darlington to help keep their homes warm this winter. The kits are fitted by the charity’s handyman at no cost to the recipient.

As part of its efforts to reduce the levels of fuel poverty among older people, Age UK has teamed up with leading energy provider EON to provide the energy-saving kits and to fund the fitting by a trained handyman. Age UK North Yorkshire & Darlington can also provide free and impartial advice to over 50s to help with choosing energy suppliers and provide handy tips on how to save money on energy bills from their Information and Advice office in Beaumont Street behind the town’s branch of Boyes.

The charity can provide and fit radiator foils, LED light bulbs and draft excluders to help prevent heat loss and reduce home running costs. Installers can also provide cold alarms that can warn you when the temperature in the home drops to unsafe levels. The devices can also help to reduce fuel bills all year round by reducing lighting costs down to less than a sixth of the cost of running conventional incandescent light bulbs.

Appointments to have the equipment installed can be booked by calling the charity’s Darlington office on 01325 362832. There are limited numbers of energy-saving kits available so the charity is urging that eligible residents contact them as soon as possible to book their appointment.
