Commenting on the research, Hockleys Professional's managing director Richard Lloyd said that, despite some negativity, the study's findings were "encouraging".
He explained: "Although it is encouraging that people are happy to back the government's zero-carbon homes commitment, it's sad to see that they're not so keen to make a difference using their own properties
"Although adding green features to your home may seem like additional cost, you need to remember that you can make a difference with simple, relatively cheap methods such as energy-saving light bulbs or improving insulation."
The research by N&P has come after the Fair Investment Company claimed that UK homeowners should not find becoming energy efficient "a struggle".
