Keeping warm isn’t simply a matter of comfort – it’s also better for your health. As the nights draw in and temperatures drop there are a number of things we can do and resources to access to help keep our homes warm this winter. We are committed to help ensuring that Eastleigh Borough residents are safe and well looked after, and that our communities keep as well as possible during the colder months.
The Environment Centre’s - Hitting the cold spots
Keeping your home warm and your family healthy can be expensive and sometimes difficult. The Hampshire-based Hitting the Cold Spots helpline is staffed during office hours by experienced advisers who can offer practical advice on reducing your energy bills and accessing grants and loans to improve the energy efficiency of homes and provide emergency boiler repairs or replacements. They can also lend electric oil-filled radiators to ensure you are not left in the cold.
Call free during office hours on 0800 804 8601 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
