Nest Scheme

The Welsh Government Warm Homes Nest scheme aims to make Welsh homes warmer and more energy efficient places to live.

Nest is open to all householders in Wales and provides advice on saving energy, money management, energy tariffs, and benefit entitlement.  

In addition to free advice, if you own or privately rent your home and you or someone you live with receives a means tested benefit you may be eligible for home improvements at no cost.

If you are eligible, a Nest assessor will visit your home and recommend a tailored package of improvements that will help to make your home warmer and save you money on your energy bills. Suggested improvements, funded by the Welsh Government, may include a new central heating boiler, radiators, heating controls and insulation.

“My heating bill has reduced dramatically and the house is a lot warmer. I would definitely recommend this scheme. I would not have been able to afford the improvements myself”. A resident of Machynlleth

If your home is hard to heat, contact Nest on Freephone 0808 808 2244 for free advice and to see if you are eligible for free home improvements, or visit the website for more information.
