Fight inevitable rising energy costs with the CombiSave

Fight inevitable rising energy costs with the CombiSave

Times are tough for many of us in 2020; with the huge effects that the Coronavirus pandemic has had on the economy, many people are dealing with having lost their job, being on 80% of their normal salary through the furlough scheme or just having to cope with huge changes in lifestyle due to the national lockdown and shielding from the virus.

Lockdown had a huge impact on how we spend our time, with many of those habits; considerably less time spent travelling, less time out for leisure and substantially more time at home having continued through to the autumn. With the new three-tier Coronavirus restriction system and persistent rumours that the government is considering a second short “circuit breaker” lockdown, chances are that we will all be spending significantly more time at home than normal in the months ahead.

Spending more time at home in this way means that household bills are bound to rack up. Not only will having the heating on bring the usual utility bill increase in winter, but more time spent at home means you’ll be using much more electricity and potentially water too.

The average household is expected to see an increase of up to £100 on their gas and electricity bills due to the pandemic and spending more time from home — the Money Advice Trust has even warned that millions of households could struggle to pay bills this winter and that more needs to be done to help with utility bills and other outgoings like rent and mortgages.

Make your home energy efficient

For those worried about how to combat the inevitable rise in energy bills, the first step is to try and take small steps to make your home more energy efficient. But the likelihood is that now is not the time financially to make big, sweeping changes, so it can be hard to know what cost-effective steps you can take to try and tackle the problem.

Get a CombiSave to help fight the rising costs

Our CombiSave ‘fit and forget’ combi-boiler device can help you reduce the amount of water and gas used in the initial heating process of your water. As well as being good for the environment, it can save you up to £250 a year, which could make a difference when people are making decisions that can affect a range of other areas in their lives.

Installation is also easy; you can have it installed on to your existing pipework close to the combi-boiler in just minutes. Once fitted, it restricts the flow of water until it’s reached the correct heat, potentially saving 28,000 litres of water each year and plenty of gas. It also has the added bonus of making your home more environmentally friendly.
