As winter approaches, it is increasingly apparent that the Hungarian population is consciously preparing for this year's heating season, according to research from IKEA, writes business daily Világgazdaság.

Only 13.3% of surveyed Hungarians said that they do not plan to reduce their costs with household measures this fall/winter season, the IKEA study revealed.

The majority, 47.7%, said they would turn down the heating in the rooms when they go to work or are not using the space.

Although households will keep the temperature in their homes higher than the 18 degrees announced in the government communication, the survey revealed that most people would turn the thermostat down this year.

The household goods manufacturer and retailer writes that many people are looking for energy-saving products.
