Question 2

Should you turn on your radiators if you're out of the house?

Select an answer below

Yes

No

Question 3

Do energy suppliers offer schemes if you are struggling with paying you bills?

Select an answer below

Yes

If you tell your energy company you’re struggling they will probably set up a payment plan that you can afford. If you're really struggling, ask if they have a special scheme for those in need.
