We encourage homeowners to make their homes as energy efficient as possible. By doing so we give ourselves a better chance for good health, savings on fuel bills and reducing our impact on the environment.
Domestic housing accounts for around a quarter of the UK carbon dioxide emissions (the main greenhouse gas) and the Welsh Government has targeted home energy efficiency as a way of raising the quality of Welsh housing and of reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
Age Concern: Help with Heating in Wales
A factsheet has been developed by Age Concern (now Age UK, a UK-wide body with offices in Wales), aimed at people aged 60 and over living in Wales.
It provides advice and information to older people on the help that is available to assist with heating costs and other fuel problems.
