Free and discounted insulation

In the cold winter months it’s good to know that for those needing extra help to stay warm there is help available.  The ice, snow and frost in winter bring lots of challenges, but for some there are very real concerns about the costs of heating our homes.  

The World Health Organisation recommends that safe indoor temperatures for older people, young children and those with a long-term health condition is 21°C (70°F) during the day and 18°C (64°F) at night.  

The Hertfordshire Warmer Homes scheme is here to help.  Run in partnership by Hertfordshire County Council and the district and borough councils, the scheme can provide free or discounted household improvements such as insulation that will make your home easier and cheaper to heat.  

For more information about the scheme and other support staying warm, contact HertsHelp on 0300 123 4044 (local rate) or
