Energy Efficiency Guide for Sheffield Landlords

New energy efficiency guide issued for landlords

A prominent energy industry organisation has just issued a new guide for all landlords to improve their properties in and around Sheffield. 

The Energy Saving Trust who are an independent organisation ”working to address the climate emergency” claims renters in Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster will be hit especially hard by the cost of living crisis as they are unable to carry out significant energy efficiency home improvements to reduce costs.

The Trust says: “Landlords can support their tenants by offering energy saving advice and installing energy efficiency home upgrades. Summer is the ideal time to carry out these home improvements, before colder weather hits and energy prices go up again.”

The guide suggests that a starting point is talking through Energy Performance Certificates with tenants, and then working on possible improvements over the summer.

The Trust suggests a familiar list of changes including insulation, solid wall, cavity wall and loft insulation plus the installation of energy efficient boilers and the filling of draught gaps.

It then goes on to recommend double glazing windows and fitting energy efficient doors, plus the current government recommendation of heat pumps.

“Reminding your tenants to save energy and money, no matter who’s paying the bills, will help everyone” says the Trust.

Our customer reviews

Five stars

By chance we came across Sandie at Bruce Simpson, having always used “bigger” more well known companies before when needing to find tenants for our rental properties. Never again. The service far exceeded our expectations and went over and beyond, it was worth every penny of the more than reasonable fee payable. Sandie did everything Haybrooks did not. She achieved more in one week than they did in one month, keeping us posted in a kind and friendly way every step of the way. Bruce Simpson excels in providing a personal service, covering every aspect needed effortlessly. Thank you. 100% would recommend to landlords and tenants alike.

Five stars

I have been working with Bruce & Simpson for nearly a year now. Great communication, fills rooms quickly and solves any problems that arise with tenants!

Five stars

After feeling disgruntled by the treatment of the high street agent we were using to find new tenants and manage the properties, I was introduced to Sandie and was impressed by her passion and “thinking outside the box” attitude to marketing my properties. Nothing is too much trouble and any maintenance issues are dealt with straight away. Very happy
