Hi, I’m Emma
Home Energy Advisor
How it works:
Home Energy Visit
Once your eligibility has been checked, an appointment (at a time convenient for you) will be booked for you by the LEAP contact centre team. A highly trained LEAP Home Energy Advisor will then visit your home and carry out a home visit. During the home visit, the advisor will conduct a thorough assessment of your home and try to offer immediate help.
The advisor can install a range of simple energy saving measures where necessary, such as draught proofing or LED lightbulbs, provide energy efficiency advice and help you to look for a better deal on energy bills. The Home Energy Advisor will also leave behind a Home Visit Pack which will include details of the help and advice given to you as well as contact details of other organisations offering further support.
After the visit
Based on the findings of your home visit there are a range of onward services that can be offered. These might include a referral to an income maximisation service, an assessment for larger energy efficiency measures (insulation and heating) and identification of serious hazards in the home.
LEAP has some very broad eligibility requirements. We want to be able to help as many people as we can by extending the service to anyone that either is already in or is at risk of falling into fuel poverty. It is open to all types of householders – homeowners, private renters and social housing tenants.
