Almost 84% of UK homeowners will make property greener: Nearly 84% of Brit homeowners intend to make energy efficiency improvements to their property over the next 12 months.

That’s as reported in new research by the plumbing & heating trade supplier City Plumbing, which says nearly 53% of households propose to set out green measures to lower their energy bills.

In the midst of the most preferred home upgrades are loft, cavity wall & underfloor insulation, as stated in the survey of 1,000 homeowners.

The results of the report also point out that three-in-five of those people living in a home valued at £600,000 or more plan to use the government’s Green Homes Grant scheme as oppsed to one-in-five homeowners with a property estimated between £101,000 to £200,000.

The survey also revealed almost a third will make these upgrades to make their home more comfortable for them & their family, whereas almost 27% think these ‘green’ improvements would make their property more attractive to future buyers.

Steve Alldritt, Technical Director of City Plumbing’s Energy Efficiency Team, stated: “For homeowners, making energy efficient changes saves money in the long run, reduces environmental impact and can even make a property more appealing to future buyers. It really is a ‘win-win’ situation.”
