Millions of families across England, Scotland, and Wales are set to see their energy bills soar to unprecedented levels in 2022. What’s more, households with an EPC rating of E or worse could be charged an additional £390 a year due to the leaky homes surcharge.

When you’re facing mounting costs on every front, investing in quality insulation may be the last thing on your mind. But the truth is it’s more important than ever before to use eco-friendly measures to improve your home’s energy efficiency and tackle the rising cost of living head on. The sooner you act, the quicker you’ll benefit from significantly lower heating bills, while enjoying a cosier home to boot.
