The energy issues that beset the UK last year are expected to linger until 2023, putting further strain on family budgets.
If you're concerned about your energy bill, an expert has given his top energy-saving ideas.
The UK has reached the halfway point of the Government's Energy Bill Support Scheme, and all households will continue to get £67 off their monthly energy bill until March.
However, beginning in April, the Government's Energy Price Guarantee, which now sets the average energy bill at £2,500, will be hiked to £3,000, requiring households to be cautious of their consumption.
One heating specialist spoke to The Sun and provided his advice on how to lower your energy use and, as a result, save money on your energy bills in the future.
Loftzone's CEO, Dave Raval, claims that his advice may save you up to £1,895.
Saving £100 by lowering your thermostat.
Dave's first recommendation is pretty straightforward, and one we've all heard before: dial down the thermostat in your home.
He said that the average temperature that homes set their thermostat to is 21 degrees, yet the lowest temperature at which you may be comfortable is between 18 and 20 degrees.
If your thermostat is set higher than this, Dave believes you can probably afford to lower it without sacrificing comfort.
By turning it down one degree, you could make a saving of around £100, with bigger savings for bigger cuts.
However, he does note that there are exceptions to this such as those who are ill-health.
Switch off 'vampire devices' - save £750
It is worthwhile to conduct an audit of your company's energy use to determine where and how much energy is being wasted. You may put measures in place to increase your company's energy efficiency and save costs once you've determined where energy is being wasted. Check your company energy tariff one last time. You might not be on the best rate if you've been using the same supplier for a time. It can be wise to compare commercial energy providers right away and switch to a more affordable offer.
