House checks carried out to reduce bills

Have your say

AN army of ‘green doctors’ will be giving 500 South Yorkshire households a free energy health check to help keep residents warm and to try to help them reduce energy bills.

Groundwork Sheffield is working in partnership with LiveGreen and South Yorkshire Housing Association to carry out the checks.

Susan Rutherford, an SYHA resident from Gleadless Valley, whose home has been checked, said: “The Green Doctors used an energy monitor to help me understand where I waste energy within my home.

“I only boil the amount of water I need in my kettle and I don’t leave appliances on stand-by. The advice about making little changes has made a big difference.”
