HIA Logo - Keeping warmOne of the best ways of keeping yourself well is to stay warm, as cold homes can have a significant impact on your health. Is a cold home affecting your health? Maintaining a warm home can help prevent colds, flu or more serious health conditions such as heart attacks, strokes, pneumonia, respiratory illness and depression.

You can be more vulnerable to cold-related illnesses because of one or more of the following:

  • You are over 65
  • You are disabled 
  • You are on a low income (so can’t afford heating)
  • You have a long-term health condition (such as heart, lung or kidney disease)
