More than half (57 per cent) of people in the UK are unaware of how much money they could save by improving their insulation , new research shows.
Findings of a survey of 2,000 households by E.ON, highlights the lack of awareness that still surrounds simple energy saving measures like lagging lofts and cavity walls.
Indeed, 15 per cent of those surveyed said they do not know how to go about installing insulation .
Meanwhile, one in ten households said that they just 'can't be bothered', while nine per cent use the excuse that they have too much clutter in the loft.
"When we feel the cold, it's very tempting to turn on or turn up the heating, but there are other long-term solutions which can make a big difference and help you save money on your bills," explained Kevin Bryant, energy fitness instructor at the utility firm.
