    home energy use longitudinal time repeated survey behavior behaviour
Over the past twenty years English homes have become more energy efficient, but the energy used in them has risen. Could this anomaly be due to home heating practices becoming more energy intensive? Some answers to this question will be provided by a recently completed face-to-face survey of home energy use in English households. This survey replicates many of the heating behaviour questions asked in a face-to-face survey in southern England in 1984. Questions that have been replicated include those on thermostat settings, rooms which are heated and the duration of heating. This paper explores how these home heating practices have changed in the past twenty years. This research forms part of the UK's 'Carbon Vision' programme on carbon reductions in buildings.
