Surveys are reasonably priced and free to low income households and will be available through the winter from November 2017 onwards. Find out more and sign up at cheeseproject.co.uk.
The best recommendations come from people who have already had a survey, so if you have found a survey useful in making your home warmer and/or in saving energy please pass the word around.
