Business energy users who deal with rental properties should take note of a number of energy efficiency tips issued by the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA).
Following the organisation's advice could save letting agencies and landlords money and see them go green to reduce their carbon emissions.
ARLA suggests that installing cavity wall, floor and loft insulation will improve properties' energy efficiency and may reduce further capital outlay in the future. Loft insulation should be between 250mm and 300mm thick for maximum efficiency.
Landlords could also fit window and door draught excluders to ensure heat remains trapped inside the property, thereby reducing energy usage and cutting heating bills.
Ian Potter, operations manager at ARLA, noted: "Landlords can already take advantage of a tax allowance of up to £1,500 for these energy efficiency improvements through the Landlord's Energy Saving Allowance.
"It makes sense therefore for landlords to carry out these improvements straight away, as considerable cost savings can be made."
