How much are energy costs going up by?

There’s nothing else that’s hit the news harder in recent months, pandemic aside, than the dramatic energy price increases, set to put thousands of households under added financial pressure and have already plunged dozens of small energy providers into administration.

According to Ofgem, prices are set to rise by an eye-watering 54% this April, pushing the average annual bill up by a staggering £693, to around £2000 a year.

There are plenty of Ways We Can Cut Our Heating Energy Use, but how we can tell if our hard work is making a difference now without waiting for the next bill to come around?


What is Insights+?

The Wiser Home app’s all new feature, Insights+, is more advanced version of Insights which every user currently has access to. By integrating energy data from an eligible smart meter, Insights+ can learn even more from your system and energy use to provide:

  • Real-time breakdowns of your energy use
  • Personalised insights
  • Heating use predictions
  • Spend tracking and predictions

Using easy-to-read charts and visuals, Insights+ gives you more power to reduce your energy use, your monthly spend and your carbon footprint, helping you make sustainable choices too.


How much could I save with Insights+?

Research shows that Insights+ alone could help you save 7% on your heating and hot water bill, that’s nearly £40 a year based on the average annual bill*. Combine this with Wiser’s other energy-saving Smart Modes to save big on your future heating bills. Find out more about Saving Energy With Wiser.
