How much are energy costs going up by?

There’s nothing else that’s hit the news harder in recent months, pandemic aside, than the dramatic energy price increases, set to put thousands of households under added financial pressure and have already plunged dozens of small energy providers into administration.

According to Ofgem, prices are set to rise by around 54% this April, pushing the average annual bill up by a staggering £693, to around £2000 a year.

Now is the time for professional installers everywhere to become their customers’ go-to for energy-saving advice and system modifications. It’s likely you’ll get many questions as households everywhere look for ways to cut their energy use ahead of the heftier bills, and we’re here to help so you know about Drayton products’ energy-saving features.

There are plenty of Ways Homes Can Cut Energy Use, but how we can tell if all the hard work is making a difference now without waiting for the next bill to come around?

 

What is Insights+?

The Wiser Home app’s all new feature, Insights+, is more advanced version of Insights which every user currently has access to. By integrating data from an eligible smart meter, Insights+ can learn even more from the system and its energy use to provide:

  • ●  Real-time energy use breakdowns
  • ●  Personalised insights
  • ●  Heating use predictions
  • ●  Spend tracking and predictions

Using easy-to-read charts and visuals, Insights+ gives households more power to reduce energy use, monthly spend and carbon footprint, helping homeowners make more sustainable choices too.

 

How much energy can Insights+ save?

Research shows that Insights+ alone could help a household save 7% on heating and hot water bills, that’s nearly £40 a year based on the average annual bill*. Combine this with Wiser’s other energy-saving Smart Modes, and there’s the chance to save big on future heating bills.

Remi Volpe, Managing Director of Drayton said of Insights+,
