Energy Saving in Winter
With working from home firmly on the agenda for office workers across the UK, it’s safe to say most of us have now turned the heating on and seem to be boiling that kettle more often than usual. So, it’s only natural that the inevitable question of “How much will my energy bill cost this month?” is being asked again.
Luckily, last week saw the re-launch of a campaign from Citizens Advice to help people start saving energy this winter. The Big Energy Saving Winter is a national campaign to help you cut your energy bills and get all the financial support you’re entitled to. They have lots of helpful tools and advice to help you save money while keeping your home warm this winter.
Last year, they helped households across England and Wales save over £1.2million. This year, they’re aiming to help more people save even more money. The campaign is usually run during a single week in January – but this year it’s a bit different. Big Energy Saving Winter will run for three months from 2 November 2020, focusing on three key themes; Check, Switch and Save.
27% of people have actually never changed energy providers and now it’s easier than ever with the Energy Switch Guarantee – an industry initiative where energy companies have committed that switching will be simple, speedy and safe – meaning your switch will be done within a maximum of 21 days.
A typical household could save up to a whopping £305* a year by switching energy suppliers and a further estimated £600* more if your boiler is more than 7 years old and your home is well insulated, which is where we come in!
Under the government’s new Green Homes Grant scheme homeowners in England, including landlords, can get up to £5,000 to pay part of the cost of energy saving measures like insulation. Low income households can get 100% of the costs of work covered up to £10,000. As a fully accredited supplier of boiler replacements and insulation we can help you to find out your eligibility with a free, no obligation home survey. Eco3 funding is also available now for homes across the UK for eligible customers.
