The problem of Energy Cost vs Income is getting worse

UK households spent an average of £126 a month on electricity, Gas or solid fuels in 2016. This compares to £69 a month in 2002, after adjusting for inflation using the Consumer Price Index (CPI). This means there was a 59% increase in average household spending on energy between 2002 and 2016.

Over this same time period, household energy use has fallen, with figures from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) showing that the average amount of energy used per household was 17% lower in 2016 than in 2002. This means the increase in the average amount households are spending is explained solely by rises in energy prices.

Adjusted for price inflation, average monthly earnings including bonuses rose 0.2% and average regular pay excluding bonuses went up 0.1%, from 2001 until 2017.

The solution to the problem is clear and simple

There are two ways to approach the problem actually. One being to reduce the amount of energy that is being wasted, lessening the problem, and the other is to generate your own energy so as to be free from it. The best way is to do both at once where really possible.

There are lots of very intelligent things that a homeowner can do, in order to cut the amount of Energy that they are buying. The secret is knowing what to do and where to get the best deal. PDFenergy are your Home Energy Experts.

As a general rule, an EPC is required every time a home is put up for sale or for rent. So, a newly constructed home will have one, a landlord will need one to show potential tenants, and a seller must have one to show to potential buyers.

There’s a national register of EPCs, unless you’ve opted out, where you can take a look at your property’s current or previous certificates.

From April 2018, landlords will be required to achieve a minimum rating of E on the EPC for their rental property. Unless there is an accepted exemption, landlords face a penalty of up to £4,000 for failure to meet the minimum efficiency requirement.

In Scotland, you must display the EPC somewhere in the property, e.g in the meter cupboard or next to the boiler.
