Lowering energy bills is a priority for many households right now, so the launch of an app claiming to help families save hundreds of pounds is rather timely. 

Energy price rises in October could see millions of households paying an extra £800 a year, and SaveMoneyCutCarbon reports that 39% of the nation haven’t taken any energy-saving measures. The app suggests this is because they don’t know where to start.
