With the air only just starting to chill ready for this year’s Winter, many of us will be making or delaying the decision to up energy expenditure and start warming our homes.
Last year 75% of households had turned their heating on by the end of October.*
Back in April uSwitch research revealed how for Winter 2014/15, those of us who were reluctant to turn the heating on took preventative measures in an effort to reduce energy spend.
83% of us put on more layers, and 65% used a blanket when sitting down to achieve a comfortable temperature. 42% left the oven door open after cooking, 24% wore a coat, scarf or hat indoors, and 7% went to public places to feel warm — such as coffee shops.**
