Based on inflation at 5.4% would I be correct I my calculations that a 9% increase in salary would be required to be in the same position as 12 months ago? Based on being in the higher tax band?

My ESB bill in December was €190 was €335 in December 2020 main driver was we had been using the immersion for hot water when we moved into the house, since last July it has been running off the oil in a dual system one control for water and one for heat. Running it for for an hour in the morning provides more than enough for the day.
