Do energy efficient appliances save you money? Many of us are feeling the pinch amid the cost of living crisis, so could switching to energy efficient appliances actually make a difference to our energy bills? 

Soaring inflation, fuel costs and energy price rises means that homeowners are actively striving for ways to lower their bills. And when it comes to energy this is easier said than done - the cost of electricity has spiked in 2022, going from 18.9 pence per kWh in 2021 to over 28 pence per kWh, according to Ofgem.
