Number of households opting to switch suppliers rose by 15% in 2015
The number of households that have decided to switch their energy supplier in order to save energy and money has risen by 15% throughout 2015, a recent report by Ofgem has been able to find.
The energy market regulator said that 6.1m gas and electricity accounts had been transferred during the year – about 800,000 more than in 2014. Households who decided to switch have managed to achieve some significant savings, as the average switcher’s dual fuel saving was £337 over the last three months of 2015. For 10% of people, savings were as high as £567 a year.
“It’s encouraging to see switching levels at their highest level for four years,” said Ofgem’s Rachel Fletcher.
HeatingSave – slashing energy bills, fast and easy
This initiative is a truly commendable one, but if you’re looking for an alternate way of saving up to 30%+ on your energy bills, then HeatingSave is just the thing to consider.
Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.
HeatingSave is also approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust and was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project.
