With winter in full swing, one would hope that the people of Britain would be prepared for anything the cold conditions have to throw at them. But according to a recent survey by Super Saver Oil*, 67% have admitted that they’re unprepared for a ‘winter household emergency’.
With the colder temperatures, and boilers struggling to keep up, boiler breakdowns seem to be the most common home emergency in UK households. Only 20% of the 1,067 people surveyed said they would know what measures need to be taken to prevent a household emergency.
But boilers aren’t the only thing you should be worried about this winter. More than 30% said that they were unprepared for gas leaks and 25% said they weren’t ready for freezing pipes.
To make sure you have peace of mind this winter contact Go-Assist to get home emergency and boiler cover.
