Poorly insulated homes to incur £400 extra heating costs under new price cap


As Chris Grant, CEO of EPC Choice Ltd, a leading provider of Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) in the UK, I am keenly aware of the challenges homeowners face with rising heating costs. Particularly under the latest Ofgem price cap, poorly insulated homes are experiencing significant increases in heating expenses. It's a pressing issue, but one that can be effectively managed with the right approach – starting with an EPC from EPC Choice Ltd

Understanding the Cost of Inefficiency

Analysis from the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit (ECIU) has highlighted a concerning trend: homes with poor insulation, particularly those rated band F on the EPC scale, face an average annual rise of £415 in gas bills. This number climbs to about £730 when combined with electricity costs. The message is clear – energy efficiency is no longer a luxury but a necessity.
