As the leading experts in HMO lettings in Stoke-on-Trent, our main goal is to assist our landlords in saving money while maintaining their properties. One way we achieve this goal is by helping landlords reduce their energy bills. This is especially important for HMO landlords who have multiple tenants and higher energy usage. In this blog, we will explore how we can help reduce energy bills for HMO landlords.

1. Conduct Energy Audits

To reduce energy bills for HMO landlords, we start by conducting an energy audit. This helps us identify areas where energy is being wasted and where improvements can be made. We get our EPC auditor to give a comprehensive overview of what needs doing in the house to get it more efficient. Some of the areas that are easy to concentrate on are:
  • Insulation: We check for proper insulation in the walls, floors, and ceilings to prevent heat loss.
  • Lighting: We replace traditional light bulbs with LED bulbs to save energy and money.
  • Appliances: We encourage landlords to replace old, energy-guzzling appliances with energy-efficient models.

2. Install Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats are an excellent way to save on gas bills for HMO landlords. These devices allow the tenants to have heating but only when they boost they boost it. A minimum temperature is set and should the tenants want to increase the heating they can. What this does is that the heating doesn’t stay on in the house when everyone is at work, which then in effect helps keep the heating down and can lead to significant energy savings. As letting agents, we can install these thermostats for our clients and assist them in managing them.

3. Promote Energy-Efficient Practices

We request HMO tenants to practice fair energy-usage in the houses that they occupy. This can include:
  • Turning off lights and appliances when not in use
  • Using energy-efficient light bulbs
  • Encouraging tenants to report any energy wastage or leakages

4. Monitor Energy Usage

Monitoring energy usage can help landlords identify areas where energy is being wasted and make changes accordingly. We provide landlords with energy monitoring tools such as smart meters or online platforms that track usage. This helps them identify areas of high energy usage and take corrective action.

5. Provide Energy-Efficient Upgrades

At Hype lettings, we provide HMO landlords with energy-efficient upgrades that can save them money over time. These upgrades can include:
  • Double-glazed windows: These can reduce heat loss and noise pollution.
  • Low-flow showerheads: These can reduce water usage and heating costs.
  • Solar panels: These can generate clean energy and reduce reliance on the grid.
In conclusion helping HMO landlords reduce their energy bills is not only beneficial for them but also for the environment. As Stoke on Trent’s leading letting agent, we can help with any and all energy requirements.
