We don’t think there’s ever been a more expensive time to be a homeowner, as the cost of your weekly food shop goes up and your energy bills reach uncharted territory. It’s extremely sad that some families are being faced with a choice between heating and eating, following the rise of the energy price cap to an eye-watering £1971 from April 1st, a 54% rise on the previous figure of £1277.
Due to market forces and the conflict in Ukraine, this price cap could increase to £2600+ in October, enough to send a shiver down every homeowner’s spine. Normally, you could shop around for a cheaper tariff, but there are very few better deals on the market. Our recommendation, if you haven’t got them already, is to have energy efficient windows and doors installed, and let us explain our thinking behind it.
