What’s the average UK energy bill and how can I save money?

Whether you want to lower your energy bill to save money or reduce your carbon footprint, many of us are thinking about how to make greener decisions in the home. Energy usage and emissions are measured in a property’s Energy Performance Certificate, ranked in bands from A to G.

Right Move’s latest analysis of properties that have recently been listed for sale shows that the greener a home is, the lower its average energy bill. The average monthly bill for a 3-bedroom semi-detached house with a rating of D is around £147, which works out at £1,786 per annum. Right Move has a handy table showing the average price for one to five bedroom homes with various energy ratings.

Within a home’s Energy Performance Certificate, you can find an estimate of the annual bill for heating, lighting, and hot water. The calculation is based on the property’s conditions at the time of its assessment. If for example, an older single-glazed windows have been replaced with new double glazing since its certificate was created, this would not be factored in before a new certificate is produced.

The certificate usually lists various recommendations to improve a home’s energy efficiency, even including how many points each one would likely add to your energy efficiency score and how much you could expect to save on your bills. Lifestyle, the number of people living there, and how energy efficient it was to begin with all affect how much energy is used.
