Provide free energy efficient heaters (and possibly cooling) to all pensioners that would like one.

This serves many purposes: It will enable pensioners to "afford" a more efficient option, but also is a safety initiative as they will discard aging bar heaters that are hazardous. As the elderly are also very affected in states like SA when it is hot - a cooling options would be great as many become unwell/die in extreme heat.
