Lack of ac­tion on en­ergy sav­ing

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

A new YouGov sur­vey un­der­taken on be­half of the Heat­ing Helpline in­di­cates that the Govern­ment has a long way to go to con­vince home­own­ers to spend money on en­ergy sav­ing mea­sures.

More than one in five (21 per cent) of home­own­ers have not taken any such mea­sure in the last two years. A third plan to spend noth­ing in the com­ing year and a fur­ther 28 per cent will only spend up to £250.

Helpline chief ex­ec­u­tive Robert Higgs says: “It is clear that al­though house­hold­ers are in­ter­ested in cut­ting their en­ergy costs, there is a lack of un­der­stand­ing.” Con­tact www.heat­inghelpline.org.uk
