Why save energy

Why save energy?

As energy prices rise, tenants are looking for warmer, more comfortable homes that are cheaper to run

Saving energy helps to reduce effects of climate change

From 1st October 2008, landlords are legally bound to show tenants the Energy Performance Certificate of the property they are renting


Energy performance certificates

Energy Performance Certificates

  • Give home owners and tenants the energy efficiency rating of their property

  • Assessed by looking at all areas of energy efficiency to produce a UK Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) rating

  • Compulsory when a house is built, sold or put up for rent

  • Valid for 10 years


How is energy wasted in homes

ROOF

25%

WALLS

35%

WINDOWS

10%

DRAUGHTS

FLOOR

How is energy wasted in homes?


Insulation

Insulation

Lacking insulation will result in your tenants

paying more to keep warm

Current recommendations for insulation are:

270mm of loft insulation

Wall cavities to be filled if possible

Grants are available for all

Improving energy efficiency

Improving energy efficiency

  • Replace old hot water tank jackets

  • Insulate hot water pipes

  • Eliminate draughts with DIY draughtproofing

  • When replacing appliances such as washing

    machines and fridges, look for Energy Saving

    Recommended appliances.


Heating systems

Heating systems

Inefficient /expensive heating systems cost your tenants more to keep warm and are not likely to be turned on, leading to deterioration of your property

Timer/programmer

Central Heating

Room thermostats

Set hot water tank to 60°


Landlords energy saving allowance

Landlords Energy Saving Allowance

Claim up to £1500 deduction on income tax

Can be claimed for each dwelling (e.g. each flat in a block)

Measures:

  • Cavity wall insulation

  • Loft insulation

  • Draught proofing

  • Hot water tank insulation

  • Floor insulation

Feed in tariffs fits

Feed in Tariffs (FITs)

  • Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) became available in Great Britain from April 2010.

  • The scheme guarantees a minimum payment for all electricity generated by a renewable system, as well as a separate payment for the electricity exported to grid. These payments are in addition to the bill savings made by using the electricity generated on-site.


Financial incentives fits
