Energy efficient improvements are a priority for homeowners

Tax Cuts in 2015?

A recent YouGov poll by Saint-Gobain UK and Ireland has found that 54% of UK homeowners consider energy efficient improvements to the home a top priority.

Sixty-one percent were over the age of 60 – a group most at risk from the effects of fuel poverty, with cold homes increasing the incidents of flu, chest infections and high blood pressure.

Mark Weaver, project director for retrofit at Saint-Gobain UK and Ireland, said: “The UK’s housing stock is one of the poorest in Europe in terms of energy efficiency, so it is promising to see a growing desire from UK homeowners to improve the energy performance of their homes for years to come.
