Complimentary advice from the Energy Saving Trust (EST) on how to reduce bills from energy suppliers and lower carbon emissions is to be put on offer in Merseyside.
The organisation is working with Wirral Metropolitan borough council and Liverpool city council to send out surveys to local homeowners that can be filled out and returned for free, whereupon personalised reports will be issued, reports the Southport Visitor.
Making only minor changes to domestic consumption habits could help homeowners save £300 a year on their energy bills, which could be a big help as the winter months approach and there is no sign of significant price reductions from the major suppliers.
Advice will also be offered on how to improve domestic energy efficiency ratings, which could help homeowners to increase the value of their property.
Installing cavity wall and loft insulation is one way to improve energy efficiency, while replacing older white goods with more modern models can also help deliver savings.
Homeowners can also choose to switch energy companies if they are unhappy or have found a cheaper alternative.
