Advice on keeping warm

HOUSEHOLDERS have been getting advice on ways to keep their homes warmer this winter.

The Northants Warm Homes team was offering tips and solutions to residents on ways that they can keep the heat inside their homes when the cold weather bites.

Northants Warm Homes is a partnership of all the councils in Northamptonshire and officers from Daventry District Council (DDC) were be on hand in the foyer of Tesco in Daventry on Tuesday.

Cllr Daniel Cribbin, portfolio holder for environment at DDC, said: “Keeping warm in your home can sometimes be a challenge particularly for older, hard-to-treat homes. However the Northants Warm Homes team are able to offer solutions and top tips for everyone this winter.

“At the moment there is a special offer on Sempatap insulation, which is a type of internal insulation for solid wall properties, and the Northants Warm Homes team can provide more information on this, so I would encourage everyone to contact the Northants Warm Homes team to find out how they can stay warm this winter.”
