UK home-owners were dealt another bitter blow with the recent announcement by Scottish Energy of a whopping 19 % increase in our gas bills.
As sure as night follows day we will be hearing from the other utility companies that they also need to raise their prices and probably by a similar amount.
This latest rise means that gas and electricity prices have now risen by over 50% in the last two years and have doubled since 2006 !
Considering that demand is nowhere near its peak as yet due to the global recession it is a sobering thought that gas and electricity prices are only going to be headed in one direction in the years ahead.
If you want to reduce your heating costs and save thousands of pounds in the future there really has never been a better time to install solid wall insulation.
