5 Star Effort From Homeowners
At 5 Star we aim to provide homeowners with the best possible products to help achieve a greener future for them, their home and the environment. Energy ratings and better insulation ensure that homeowners know they have the chance to save energy and therefore save money on their energy bills.
Becoming green and considering the amount of energy household use has become a big focus point for companies and organisations who encourage homeowners to take measures to improve their home and routines. Energy tips do the rounds on a daily basis, some are achievable through a simple routine and others cost money to invest but usually have a bigger impact.
A recent set of statistics from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has indicated that homeowners are taking the idea of energy saving serious. The main statistic shows that homes in England and Wales alone have managed to reduce the energy used by 24.7% in 2011 from the initial use in 2005.
The regulator, Ofgem, however indicates that bills have still taken a rise of 28% in the last 3 years. This shows that without insulation the price of bills would be even more unbearable and unaffordable for the majority of homeowners.
A spokesman for Energy UK also said that the fall in consumption shows how effective it is to insulate your home.
