A look at how some people compromise their Christmas spending to contend with high heating bills
The costs associated with heating the home seem to go up each year. According to a recent study, it is estimated that roughly 60% of all adults in the UK wait for as long as possible before turning on their household heating through fear of running up a large bill.
There are many ways to avoid switching on the heating, such as wearing more clothing, or keeping windows closed and sealed etc, but there are times when we should feel free to live in comfort without worrying about excessive bills.
4% of adults in the UK do not turn on the heating unit at all during the winter months. With temperatures at their coldest during this period, this gives cause for concern.
Christmas is a wonderful time of year that is supposed to be full of joy and happiness, but rising heating costs cause some people to tighten their belts during the festive season. It is estimated that around 24% of all people will change their Christmas spending habits to combat the high cost of heating.
