Warm Home Discount 2018/19

Warm Home Discount Scheme – Applications Now Open

Warm Home discount scheme applications are now starting to open. Check with your energy supplier to see if you are eligible to apply.  

The Warm Home Discount scheme (WHDS) offers a one-off payment of £140 (inclusive of VAT) towards the energy bills of households that need it most in England, Scotland and Wales.

The scheme was introduced by the Government in April 2011 and administered by energy suppliers. The discount is provided to eligible customers as a payment credited to their energy account, or as a £140 credit on their prepayment card or key, during the winter.

I have a couple of Links below to the application pages of some energy suppliers but if yours is not listed please do make contact with them

Ring Video Doorbell Review

About a month or so ago, I contacted Ring UK to ask if I could review their video doorbell device. They were extremely kind enough to send me a device and a chime doorbell in return for my honest review.  Below are my thoughts on the device based on what I have experienced so far. Please keep in mind that anything I review on this blog is given honest feedback both good & bad based on my experience. Here is my review on the Ring Video Doorbell.

I was sent the device and really couldn’t wait to start using it. I eagerly opened my parcel and pulled out all of the contents. On first glance, it all looked a bit overwhelming and I did wonder if I would actually be able to install all of this myself but in fact, it was all too easy.

Now, I have to say that Ring has scored additional bonus points with me….They have actually thought of EVERYTHING! Not only do they provide plates to mount your ring device on angels i.e if you live at the top of some stairs or on an angle, you can mount the device to the angled plates, they provide all the necessary screws but here’s where the bonus points come in….They provided me with the drill bit, a mini spirit level and a screwdriver! So you don’t need to go hunting in your garage or shed for the right tools! 10 brownie points for you Ring!!
