Careful heating to keep us eating this winter

Ahead of the coldest, darkest winter for a generation, the nation (54%) is worried about how to heat their homes.

Research commissioned by Worcester Bosch has revealed 90% of us admit concern about the rise of the energy price cap in October, 4 in 5 (79%) have already changed their spending habits to cope with the price rises this year.

More than 2 in 5 (41%) admit cutting down on food purchases and even going without eating some days.

We’ve been cutting back when socialising (71%), shopping (66%) and planning for holidays (58%). And while these measures may be helping in the short term, three quarters (77%) of us believe the rise of the energy price cap will have a significant impact on our financial situations as the majority (57%) worry about the regularity of these increases.

Aston spoke to Martyn Bridges, director at Worcester Bosch.
