More than 65% of Londoners and 83% of homeowners living in East Anglia leave the heating on for over eight hours a day, a new survey has revealed.

The Scottish (79%), Northern Irish (74%) and Welsh (74%) are slightly more heat conscious as they tend to use their heating up to five hours a day.

More than 76% of homeowners in the South West and more than 76% of people living Yorkshire and Humber, turn on the heat for up to eight hours a day.

The findings come for a  survey based on 1000 male and female homeowners across the UK commissioned by entu, a home improvements company.

Chief Executive of the entu Group, Ian Blackhurst, said: “It is interesting to see which regions are comfortable to leave the heating on and which are more concerned with conserving heat and energy.

“Energy efficiency is something all UK residents should be aware of. It’s important for the environment and being more energy efficient will also have a positive financial impact for individuals.”
