Older people and those registered as disabled are being offered free home heating checks by Bath and North East Somerset Council.
Costs are being met through a £5m fund to help more people to stay at home for longer and retain their independence.
Help includes insulation and heating checks, money-saving advice on bills, and giving out hot water bottles.
Councillor Simon Allen said: "It's making sure everything is being done to keep homes as warm as possible."
