Are you guilty of turning the heating up too high? New research1 from E.ON has revealed that nearly a third (31%) of those questioned are heating their home above the recommended temperature range of 18-21 degrees Celsius.
To help people be more energy efficient this winter, E.ON has teamed up with illustrator Melanie Johnsson to create heat-sensitive artwork. The unique and innovative artwork is designed to transform when the temperature in the home gets higher than recommended, indicating it could be time to turn the heating down and save on energy and heating bills.
The research also revealed that two-thirds (67%) of Brits will try to be more energy efficient this winter – with over half (61%) citing spending more time at home as the main reason for this.
Created using thermochromic black ink which fades when the temperature exceeds 21 degrees Celsius, the limited-edition illustration sees its characters lose key elements, such as their black stripes and spots, when the room exceeds this temperature, letting people know it may be time to ‘Make A Difference’ for the environment, and their energy bills.
