Could you be eligible for the Warm Home Discount?

The Warm Home Discount is an annual payment of £140 that many energy companies pay to eligible customers to help offset increased fuel costs over Winter.

How we work in residents’ homes

At South Seeds we have conducted hundreds of home energy audits to support residents to reduce their energy bills and stay warm in their homes. We regard it as a privilege to be let in to residents’ homes and we take that responsibility seriously. This is how our staff arrange and carry out home visits.
