Thrifty homeowners turn to underfloor heating to save money
According to a recent survey, money-conscious Brits are investing more than ever in technology that helps them to minimise their home heating and power bills.
In total, 2,000 adults took part in the survey, which uncovered some interesting results. Among them was the fact that 4 in 10 of those surveyed wanted to install underfloor heating in their homes.
There is a growing awareness that this form of heating is very efficient, which typically leads to lower bills. Modern materials and working methods mean that electric underfloor heating installation is far less disruptive than it used to be.
The survey also uncovered the fact that smart meters are now very popular. In total, 44% of the respondents had one or were planning to install one.
The publication of the survey results was timely, as it coincided with Big Energy Saving Week. An initiative the Citizens Advice Bureau has been running for the past seven years.
This year, it took place during the week of January 21. All kinds of people got involved with the campaign, including property gurus like Phil Spencer. In a press release, he recently said:
“As a long-time supporter of taking steps to help the environment, it’s great to see a growing awareness of the importance of making your property energy efficient.”
There is growing evidence that installing green energy measures in a home can add value and make it easier to sell. Good green credentials are something that millennials are increasingly looking for when buying a property.
