Bad News For Customers Of SSE
Scottish and Southern Energy, the UK’s second-largest energy supplier have become the first of the Big Six to announce a rise in the cost of gas and electricity, 9 per cent from 15th October. This works out at an eye-watering average rise of 119 pounds a year for those who are currently on a dual-fuel tariff with the company.
This has sparked panic from homeowners that other major energy suppliers will soon announce similar price rises and they have reason to worry if experts are to be believed as most of them have predicted widespread increases in bills this coming winter. Anyone who is worried about their energy bills rising to a level they may be unable to manage should not feel too panicked just yet as there is still time to do something about it.
Though we are reaching the conclusion of the summer, temperatures still remain well into double figures which means that usage of your heating should currently be low. This makes it the ideal time to consider installing double glazing in Rotherham, double glazing in Sheffield or double glazing in Leeds as the replacement of old single glazed windows can have a hugely positive impact on bills.
Old windows with a single pane of glass are regularly responsible for around 25 per cent of heat lost from the home. New windows from West Yorkshire Windows will plug this gap and bring heat loss to a permanent end as the two panes of glass in the sealed UPVC frame will eliminate draughts and utilise the warmth created far more efficiently.
Energy bills will be far lower with double glazing installed than they would be if a homeowner were to persist with their inefficient single glazed equivalents. You only need to visit one of our showrooms to see how effective they are.
