Rishi Sunak has just unveiled a £15bn support package to help households as the average UK energy bill is predicted to hit £2,800 a year. Even with the chancellor’s help, plenty of people will still be feeling the pinch - but this episode is packed with practical tips and advice to help you save on your energy bills. 

Presenter Claer Barrett hears from Bella who is renting a draughty Victorian flat, and wants to know her rights before she tackles her landlord. Homeowner Sam has seen his bills skyrocket, and wonders if insulating his property would be a wise investment. On hand with tips for Bella and Sam are Gemma Hatvani, founder of the Facebook group, Energy Support and Advice UK, and Brian Horne, a senior advisor at the Energy Saving Trust.
