Smart choices to reduce energy costs

  • Although an annual price cap of £2,500 has been announced for two years, this is still a significant increase on last winter.
  • A gas boiler has the biggest impact on bills and buyers may look to reduce costs by choosing well-insulated homes and those which use renewable energy sources or energy-efficient boilers.
  • How we select and use our appliances will also have an effect, with gas hobs using less energy than electric. Full loads in dishwashers and washing machines will trim costs.
  • Smart meters are a great way for raising awareness of usage. Source: Dataloft, Bloomberg, Ofgem, The Heating Hub
