A recent survey by NatWest revealed that across England, Scotland and Wales, consumers are missing out on opportunities to save, with almost a third admitting to not comparing prices to find a better deal on any of their household bills.
Across all monthly bills, council tax was seen to offer the worst value for money, with just 15% of respondents believing that it offers ‘very good’ or ‘good’ value for money, whilst on-demand video services were seen to offer the best value.
When it comes to energy efficiency, the majority of consumers across Great Britain believe themselves to be energy efficient to some extent; however, nearly half of consumers believe that they could be doing more.
UK Households – How They Save
Looking at the existing uptake of energy-saving measures in households across Great Britain, double glazing (79%), energy-saving lightbulbs (78%) and loft/wall insulation (66%), had the highest uptake. Consumers living in Wales had the largest uptake of energy-saving measures, whilst those in London, perhaps due to its large proportion of renters, had the lowest.
Household uptake in eco-shower heads (13%), energy-saving plugs (10%) and radiator boosters (4%) could add further cost savings to consumers.
