Gas and solid fuels are still the most popular, and it is no coincidence that many people expect their heating costs to increase, according to research commissioned by Újház, writes business daily Világgazdaság.
According to this, 27% of Hungarians use wood-burning boilers and stoves, and 26% use gas boilers to heat their homes.
Central heating is widespread, with 24%, and convector heating with 20%, primarily among those living in apartments.
Alternative methods, such as heat pumps, are still rare; only 2% of Hungarians use them.
While 78% of the respondents live in a property whose heating costs have so far amounted to no more than HUF 20,000 per month, as a result of the price increases, only 57% of the respondents expect that this amount will continue to cover the heating costs.
