A survey has found that fewer than half of parents consider whether gadgets in households have any impact on their energy bills.

Children spend twice as much time on their gadgets over school holidays and weekends compared to term time, when they spend around one to two hours with tech items each day, according to E.ON Energy who ran the survey of around 2,000 parents.

The supplier is urging people to try its Saving Energy Toolkit which aims to help customers monitor their home energy use.
