What can the agents and landlords do to help tenants during the energy crisis?
Agents and landlords must identify the most vulnerable tenants on their properties and proactively take steps to ensure they are adequately protected when the winter sets in. Tenants should ask their landlords to review and enhance insulation or to supply window films and draft excluders, or to add reflective foils to radiators. Tenants themselves can switch to energy-efficient lightbulbs, and turn off appliances and electrical goods rather than leaving them on standby. And, where there is an opportunity to replace an aging heating system with a modern energy efficient or green heating system then that will certainly make a significant difference to the energy consumed.
