Investigation background
This year, the rainy season started later than usual, but the hot days continue, and many people say they are already running their air conditioners and other cooling equipment at full capacity. What I am concerned about is the electricity bill. On June 28th, Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Saito officially announced the resumption of subsidies for electricity and gas bills (for three months starting from the amount used in August). Many people may be worried about their electricity bill. Therefore, this time, we conducted a survey on the actual situation and awareness regarding this summer’s electricity bill and heat stroke among 362 men and women aged 20 to 50 from all over the country.

summary
This time, we conducted an awareness survey of 362 men and women between the ages of 20 and 50 from all over the country regarding their awareness of saving energy and heatstroke this summer. First of all, about 60% of respondents expressed concerns about “strain on household budgets due to rising electricity prices,” and about 70% felt that their electricity bills had actually increased. Furthermore, approximately 60% of respondents said they plan to spend this summer consciously conserving electricity and saving electricity, with the most common method being “refraining from using air conditioning/air conditioning.” Additionally, while about 50% of respondents said they thought reviewing their insurance premiums would be effective in saving money, about 40% said they were unsure whether it would be effective in saving money. Next, when we asked about heatstroke, about 30% of respondents said they had actually suffered from heatstroke.
Approximately 15% of the respondents were aware of insurance that covers heatstroke, but this number increased by approximately 15 points to approximately 30% of those who had experienced heatstroke. In addition, the percentage of people who had insurance to protect against heatstroke was about 8% overall, but among those who had experienced heatstroke, this rose to about 24%, an increase of about 16 points.
In this survey, we found that due to concerns about recent increases in electricity bills, many people tend to prioritize saving
electricity and saving money rather than protecting their health with air conditioners and cooling, and that there is a tendency for many people to prioritize saving money on electricity rather than protecting their health with air conditioners and air conditioning, and that there is a tendency for many people to prioritize saving money on electricity rather than protecting their health with air conditioners. It became clear that awareness and participation rates were low. However, even if you save money by putting up with air conditioners and cooling, it won’t help if you end up spending money on treatment and hospitalization due to heat stroke. In order to save money without harming your health, first review your insurance and insurance premiums. If you have small children or elderly people in your household, or are involved in a lot of outdoor activities, consider heatstroke insurance or other insurance. You may want to consider purchasing insurance that covers heatstroke.
