YouGov poll by Saint-Gobain UK and Ireland

  • 54% of respondents said making their homes more energy efficient was a priority for them in the next 3 to 5 years
  • 61% were over the age of 60 – a group most at risk from the effects of fuel poverty

“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. Not only will measures such as double-glazing and insulation help people out of fuel poverty, they will improve the comfort levels in the home.

Saint-Gobain’s findings demonstrate the requirement for the construction industry to deliver comprehensive retrofit solutions to meet the growing demand, but long-term drivers that create a stable environment from government are needed to ensure this is possible, while raising awareness of the benefits of doing so.”
