Worried about energy costs? You’re not on your own!

Back

After energy regulator Ofgem raised price caps to allow energy suppliers to cover the higher costs they’re facing on the wholesale market, many households within the UK are bracing themselves for an increase in their bills.

The increase follows another winter where households and particularly pensioners struggled to afford their heating bill throughout the colder months.

Research carried out by comparethemarket.com has revealed that over the last winter, 1 in 5 pensioners were forced to cut back on their heating so they could afford their bills.

The research also showed that 48 per cent of the age group are worried about the cost of their energy with 1 in 8 not being able to afford any increase.

Further results indicated that 1 in 12 said their health suffered and 1 in 14 said they were considering downsizing. At the thought of their bills increasing, 38 per cent said they would have to dip into their savings or pay on their credit card if energy bills were to rise.

At Better Homes Yorkshire, we have several ways to help reduce the amount of energy used to heat the home and ultimately reduce your bills.
