MSP Urges Households To ‘Keep a Step Ahead of Winter’

JEANE FREEMAN MSP URGES HOUSEHOLDS TO ‘KEEP A STEP AHEAD OF WINTER’

Jeane Freeman MSP is urging her constituents throughout Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley to keep a step ahead of winter. Jeane picked up her Scottish Gas pack for Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley which holds practical steps to make your home more energy efficient this winter.

Firstly, it is important that you check that your central heating is working. Having an annual boiler service carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer is crucial as it detects problems with the boiler and controls, including whether it is leaking poisonous carbon monoxide.

Secondly, being energy efficient throughout winter is particularly important and technology can help with this. One option is to have a smart meter installed as they automatically send readings to the energy supplier. Smart meters also come with a display that shows you how much energy is being used, in pounds and pence, in near real-time, and identify where savings can be made.

Jeane Freeman, MSP for Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley said:

“It is really important to keep a step ahead of winter. I want everyone in Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley to understand what help us available for them, and for their family and friends.

“Being energy efficient and keeping bills under control is really important, so I would encourage people to get in touch with their energy supplier to find out what support is on offer.”
