Rishi Sunak has just unveiled a £15bn support package to help households as average UK energy bills are predicted to hit £2,800 a year.

Even with the chancellor’s help, plenty of people will still be feeling the pinch — but the latest Money Clinic podcast 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 adviser at the Energy Saving Trust.
