Almost a third of households waste energy by leaving the heating on, research report finds
Close to 26% of UK households waste energy by leaving the heating on within their homes even when they are unoccupied, a recent market research report has been able to suggest.
The research commissioned by OnePoll amongst 2,000 adults also found that almost 26% of consumers keep the heating on when there is no one at home and a further 27% leave windows open with the radiators on.
The findings of the report highlight the impact of such practices on carbon footprint – it is estimated that heating an empty home for two hours a day can result in more than 0.7 tonnes of carbon dioxide being emitted in the long-term.
