Website helps consumers beat rising fuel bills
Thinkinsulation.com is urging home owners to urgently review the energy saving measures in their homes following the increase in British wholesale gas prices and Ofgem’s startling prediction of a 13 per cent rise by spring 2011.
Some of the UK’s leading energy companies have already started to adjust their energy tariffs and households could see their gas bills increase by £80, rising to more than £700 per year. With purse strings still tight following the recession and another cold winter ahead, it is essential that homeowners take all precautions necessary to ensure that energy bills are kept to a minimum.
Lydia Sharples from Thinkinsulation.com told us: “Price hikes are a stark reality and it’s no wonder that homeowners are concerned after last years record high. Although we have no control over the strength of the gas market or the price of fuel in the UK, there are changes that all homeowners can make to counter increased energy prices.”
She continued: “Ensuring your property is comprehensively insulated is one way to reduce heat loss – a simple job such as insulating a loft to the correct standards will dramatically reduce energy consumption and can save you around £145 per year on fuel bills. Furthermore insulating your walls can save you as much as £385 on your energy bills a year.”
