BBC Survey – a third of us are concerned about heating bills

A Third of Us Concerned about our Winter Heating Bill

A new survey for BBC Radio 5 Live says that a third of people in the UK are concerned about paying for their heating bills this winter

It found 25% of people had put up with “unacceptably cold” homes in the past year as they struggle to pay bills. 63% of the 1,035 adults surveyed said they had cut their energy use because of rising costs and almost three-quarters believe the UK’s energy costs are unreasonable.

Government incentive schemes (such as the RHI ? Renewable Heating Scheme) can help home owners paying for expensive gas or oil to heat their homes, by subsidising the installation of heat pumps and biomass (wood pellet) boilers. Contact EnergyMyWay for more information.

The survey also indicated support for renewable energy resources – 84% would welcome more solar panels in their area!
