Tenants looking for cheap gas when they move to a new home may be likely to consider the efficiency rating of potential properties as well as performing an energy comparison.
Richard Jones, policy director at the Residential Landlords Association, stated that while this has not traditionally been a concern for tenants, it will become a more important consideration for many people in the near future.
"As time goes on, particularly because of rising costs - which the industry predicts is pretty well inevitable - it is going to become more important," he explained.
Mr Jones observed that as much of the older housing stock in the UK is fairly inefficient, which could lead to increased costs for gas and electricity, individuals will become more attracted to locations that have eco-friendly measures installed.
However, they may need to investigate the performance of a property themselves, as a recent survey by the Association of Residential Letting Agents revealed 35 per cent of landlords are not aware of how efficient their abodes are.
