The coldest days of the year are upon us, energy bills are rising much higher than the public thought and those less well-off are concerned with how they will get through the winter without getting into debt. Key Consultancy, a London based firm, help with the options available.
Us Brits love talking about the weather. Not only is it freezing, but energy bills just seem to be rising and rising. There are constant reminders throughout the media that the economy is struggling, yet bills just keep going up. Hitting homeowners where it hurts. “Bills are high enough already, for example, in London if you take ‘Mr Average Earnings’ and minus his taxes, rent/mortgage and bills, Mr Average is left with £16 a day to live on, according to recent news, so what about the people earning way below average, how are they supposed to afford the ever increasing energy bills, it simply is not fair” Says Emma Clarkson, Key Consultancy, London Waterloo. So if £16 is the average amount to live on, how much can energy bills keep rising before people simply cannot afford it?
Key Consultancy suggests that there are ways to reduce your bills rather than increasing them. “Most houses were not built in the last 10 years, you will find that the majority of houses were built closer to the 1900’s rather than the millennium” says Hicham Mouden, Key Consultancy, “Which means that they are not up to date in terms of energy efficiency, and so majority of bill payers literally have money leaking out of their home”.
Key Consultancy are a London based company that have recently opened an office in Leeds City Centre, are currently working hand in hand with one of the United Kingdom’s largest energy efficiency clients, helping those in need of reducing bills, not just during the winter time but all year round. “Our new client in energy efficiency are amazing, together we are helping thousands of people a week reduce their energy bills, without costing them a penny, energy bills may be rising, but we help to make it easier!” says Emma Clarkson, Key Consultancy. According to research, there are many ways to reduce the amount of energy you use in your home, from energy saving light bulbs, to insulation.
