What is firmus care?

At firmus energy, we understand that no two customers are the same and it is important to have a range of services to meet their differing needs.

To help make life as easy as possible for our customers, we have set up the firmuscare scheme to look after customers who have specific requirements. firmuscare offers a range of services designed to help:

• Older customers (of pensionable age).
• Customers who have a registered disability (including those who have hearing or sight impairments).
• Chronically ill customers.

Password protection

When someone you do not know comes to your door always ask them to identify themselves. All firmus energy representatives carry a company identity card, with photographic ID and a telephone number. We also offer the added reassurance of a pre-agreed password to be used when any of our staff visit your home. Contact our customer service team to agree your password.

Make your appliances easier to use

There are special controls and adaptors available for gas appliances to make it easier for customers who have dexterity difficulties. We can provide details of where to buy these or, we may be able to supply them free of charge.

Talking bill

If you are visually impaired or find it difficult to read your bill, we will arrange for one of our representatives to phone you each quarter and give you the details on your latest bill.
Additionally, we can produce your bill in either Braille, large print or audio format. All you need to do is call our customer service team and request a bill format that best suits your needs.

Bill nominee scheme

Turning on and off your gas
