The people of Britain are finding it more and more difficult to keep up to date with the rising prices of heating and other energy bills, leading to many choosing the cold over paying out for heating.
A recent survey commissioned by energyhelpline.com showed the results of 1800 people across the country and their concerns regarding the high prices of energy. The survey showed a staggering 65% of those asked would prefer to stay in the cold than to turn up their thermostats and pay the consequences; with the figure significantly rising to 74% when those between the ages of 16-24 were asked the same question. Almost half of those asked claimed that they were concerned for the health of an elderly relative or friend that struggle to pay for regular heating.
Many know that the most vulnerable energy consumers are the elderly, with most worried about prices and fear for when winter sets in, as many luxuries would have to stop in order for energy bills to be paid. The World Health Organisation calculated that last year alone, approximately 9000 people died due to living in cold homes, with people putting their lives at risk due to increasing fuel poverty.
The main aim of the Government grant schemes is to help pensioners and low income households to make their homes more energy efficient, leading to less energy use to heat the home and a fall in the amount paid for energy bills in the long run.
