Over a Third of over 65's Are Worried About Home Heating Costs


Sunbury-on-Thames, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/24/2016 -- Recent research has drawn attention to the situation that a significant proportion of older people – a third of those aged over 65 – are concerned about the price of keeping their homes warm this winter. The figures were gathered by Age UK and showed that 4.1 million people were worried about high heating prices. It is in turn expected that a focus will be on providing efficient, cost-effective heating across the population; highlighted by recent events such as Cold Homes Week (1-5 February). Part of this includes ensuring homes have the most functional heating systems possible, something experts such as South Thames Plumbing and Heating are ready to provide.

It is expected that the first step to addressing heating cost concerns will to be ensure that household boilers are as efficient as possible. A high-performing, up-to-date boiler cuts down on wastage and improves efficiency; meaning that more heat can be given at a smaller price. It can be a more sustainable choice too, whilst it is thought that many old boilers are causing people to face unnecessarily high costs. This could be seen as a particularly important consideration for the elderly, as a number of modern boilers are much easier to use and understand, as well as safer, compared to old models.
