At Neutral Home we also know that electricity costs are rising. And they are rising faster than general inflation at a time when we are all about to start using much more of it:
Let's have a look at what the average home in the UK currently spends on energy a year:
Of course that's less money on electric car charging than we spend now on petrol or diesel - but 70% of that cost is tax, while electricity currently only attracts VAT at 5%. What government will be able to resist increasing tax on car charging once the majority of us are driving electric cars? We haven't even included that bad news here!
At Neutral Home we've tried many options to understand, change and reduce home energy consumption. We found that when it comes to prioritising the right measures for a house it is easy to become confused:
That's why we set out to determine which energy efficiency and cost reduction measures are best.
We took our ten years' experience of delivering energy efficiency programmes for multi-national companies and applied it to the home in four logical steps. We ensure that the energy data drives the improvement programme: first with no or low cost measures, then with longer-term investments which pay for themselves well within the average period of home ownership.
The right mix of this equipment and technology will pay for itself in ten years by reducing your energy costs by 80% while enabling every home to meet the UK government's net zero 2050 target. That's because it enables you and your home to:
That means that the increase in energy costs of between two and five times in the next ten years can almost be eliminated - or at worst greatly reduced. Furthermore, these energy and cost savings are real - we have the data to show - and Neutral Home can help you achieve them for your new build, home maintenance or improvement project.
