Householders' use of storage heaters

Technical Report:

Abstract

An investigation into the understanding and use of storage heater controls was carried out. The general level of satisfaction with storage heating was high (90%) and most people had a reasonable idea of how the system works, what the controls do and of the tariff costs. However, the study did find substantial areas of ignorance; 37% could not say what controls their heater had and 15% did not know what tariff they were on. This lack of knowledge may prevent users getting the best performance from their heating system, resulting in discomfort and large bills.
