Turning up the heat

With last month confirmed as the wettest June since records began, research released shows many homes across Scotland switched their heating on to deal with the unseasonal weather.

Findings from energy company npower reveal that 69% of Scottish homes had used some form of heating in the past four weeks.

David Bond, customer marketing manager at npower, said: “The weather over the past couple of months has seen many people in the UK reaching for the heating controls and so it’s important that heating systems are well maintained so they are ready to spring into action when needed.

“Signing up to a central heating care product now will keep systems protected over the summer and, crucially, ensures that come winter residents have access to a team of qualified engineers and a 24/7 helpline should anything go wrong. This is a limited offer so we’re encouraging homeowners to sign up now to take advantage of our Bill Saver tariff and our cheapest central heating care together.”
