If you are less mobile, are 65 or over, or have a long term health condition, you should heat your home to at least 18C.
There’s lots of good advice, including about getting help with the cost of heating your home, in this booklet, Keep warm, keep well. You can find out about Winter Fuel Payments and Cold Weather Payments.
If you need help to pay for a new heating system or repairs and insulation, check if you qualify for the Health through Warmth scheme.
