Energy prices ‘biggest threat’ to household finances

Rising energy bills has beaten out unemployment, inflation and taxes as the biggest concern for UK consumers according to recent findings from YouGov’s Household Economic Activity Tracker (HEAT). The nationally representative tracker asked consumers to rate out of ten the biggest perceived threat and the biggest perceived benefit to their household’s standard of living in the future out of six economic measures: unemployment, energy prices, inflation, taxes, state benefits, and interest rates.

The results show that the British public is acutely concerned about escalating energy bills, identifying them as the most significant threat economic well-being with an overall rating of 7.8. Unemployment (7.4) and rising inflation (6.9) were deemed as the second and third largest threats. The news follows Centrica’s confirmation that British Gas will be rising its energy prices by an average of 6 percent due to the increase in cost of wholesale gas.

'No pushy salesmen here, just people who appeared honest and straightforward. I had quotes or visits from other companies, but found their sales people far too intimidating. All work completely neatly and tidily on time and to agreed budget.  Could not ask for more.'

'The survey was to a much higher level of service than we had seen from others. The survey was very thorough rather than the "the fitters would sort that out on the day" that we had from others. Communications were prompt and they carried out our installation quickly to make sure we beat a drop in the feed in tariff'
