We really feel for homeowners at the moment as the increasing cost of food makes it more expensive to fill up your cupboards and energy prices hit a new unwelcome high.
At the start of April, the energy price cap rose by 54%, from £1277 to £1971.
If you’re not completely familiar with what the price cap is, it is the maximum amount that your energy company can charge you for the amount of gas and electricity you use.
And it looks like that price cap will rise again in October, predicted to be £2600+.
Previously, you could shop around for a cheaper tariff, but there aren’t any cheaper tariffs available, with the current best fixed tariff costing £2800.
All is not lost though.
Getting energy efficient windows and doors fitted by us prior to the enforcing of the new price cap in October can help.
Here’s some background on why that’s the case.
