The most expensive time of the year is just around the corner, CHRISTMAS! While most of the children would’ve already constructed their lengthy Christmas list, most parents would be thinking about making cuts to that Christmas budget.
Innasol, a renewable heating company has carried out a study which showed that almost a quarter of the UK population will have their Winter spending habits affected by high and unpredictable energy bills.
Silvio Spiess, Innasol’s CEO said, “Our research has shown that unfortunately, thousands of people will have to compromise their Christmas spending to accommodate unpredictable high heating bills this winter. This highlights the need for the government to commit to its Renewable Heat Incentive scheme beyond 2016 and make consumers more aware that they can save up to 45% on heating bills by simply switching over to a greener energy source.”
So another way to look at it, is that Christmas only comes round once a year, where as the freezing cold weather sticks around for about half a year! And what’s more important is that everyone should feel warm and comfortable in their own homes. So lets hope schemes such as the Renewable Heat Incentive will continue longer so that more people can be benefited in the long run.
And it would also mean that the 45% of savings can go towards those special occasions such as Christmas and those other luxuries that we’d all like to have.
