Energy bills for gas and electricity are causing considerable problems for Brits, with new research showing more than three-quarters of people can’t pay bills. We look at ways to help get money if you can’t pay bills.
Moneysupermarket.com research has revealed that worries about the cost of bills has meant that over three quarters (78 per cent) of bill payers didn’t use their heating as much as they would have liked to, or are concerned about whether they can afford to pay for their consumption.
Of that 78 per cent, one in five (22 per cent) confessed they were so worried they stopped using their heating altogether as they couldn’t afford it, and were worried that they can’t pay bills.
17 per cent cut back on using their central heating but did manage to keep warm. Over a third (39 per cent) admitted to using their heating as much as necessary – but revealed they are now anxious about how to pay the bill.
Research published in February showed that 73% of the UK was worried about the cost of their energy bills after the winter cold snap. Figures show that the cold winter weather cost an estimated £35.21 million in home insurance claims.
