Over 50% of UK homeowners consider installing sustainable energy efficiency upgrades
The majority of homeowners across the UK believe that their houses have various insulation and energy efficiency problems, and over 50 percent consider implementing various measures designed to help them save energy and money, a recent poll carried out by Ipsos MORI on behalf of the Energy Savings Trust was able to reveal.
Figures from the survey point out that 44% of homeowners believe they live in homes with draught problems, 38% said their home has condensation problems and a further 29% say their homes are mouldy.
A total of 47% of homeowners also said that they would like to know more regarding suitability of their home for renewable energy measures.
Furthermore, around 24% of respondents that lived in draughty homes professed plans to install energy efficiency upgrades over the next year – a little over 12% of homeowners overall.
David Weatherall, energy efficiency expert of Energy Saving Trust, said, “We need to move away from big messages for broad audiences to information that is tailored to people’s individual motivations, their lifestyle and their home.
“We can no longer get away with a ‘one size fits all’ energy efficiency message for UK consumers.”
