Help with boiler repairs for older residents
7:00am Friday 22nd February 2013 in News
RYEDALE District Council is working with North Yorkshire County Council and various voluntary organisations to offer free boiler servicing and repairs for any householders who are on certain benefits and over 75 in the Ryedale area.
The Warmer Together Project, which only lasts until March 31, aims to tackle fuel poverty by saving people up to £310 on their energy bills and keeping the cold at bay in the winter months.
Subject to certain criteria, householders may be eligible for the free service, on a first-come first-served basis.
Coun Linda Cowling, leader of Ryedale District Council, said she is hoping the scheme will help to reduce fuel bills and improve the health of Ryedale families.
“The service offered will mean that the vulnerable residents of Ryedale can ensure that the heating systems are working safely to their maximum efficiency, control the heat within the property more effectively and therefore save money on fuel bills,” she said.
For more information, phone the White Rose Home Improvement Agency, which is implementing the scheme, on 01723 232527 and quote Warmer Together Project.
