Who is eligible?

Everyone is eligible for free energy advice. This includes finding out if we can install insulation or replacement heating systems for you, or if there are other programmes that can offer you funding to do this. It also includes practical advice about setting heating controls efficiently, switching your energy tariff and reducing condensation, damp and mould.

If someone in your household meets the following criteria, Healthy Homes Dorset will install insulation, and in some cases, new heating systems completely free of charge:
