We are planning to renovate a 2 bedroom flat with all electric heating (possible wall heaters in each room) and an electric hot water system. Each en-suite would have electric showers so a hot water system would only be required for the taps in the en-suites and kitchen sink.
Could anyone advise us on the best all electric system for the flat.
As we will rent to working professionals off peak storage heating will not be useful as the flat will be empty during the weekdays. If each room has a heater the tenant will be able to access the level of heating they require, and hopefully switch it off when not using it!
This leads to the second question:
If we have a SMART electric meter we would top it up remotely every month with a generous online payment.
Then, to encourage an ‘eco friendly’ environment, as well as protect our purse, if the electricity ran low, through overuse, the tenants would have to top it up themselves.
So, the question is, if we offer ‘all bills included’, with an asterisk on the ‘electricity’ element and provide clear details on the actual lease document, would this be ok?
There will then be the dilemma for the tenant who didn’t overuse the electricity to contribute to the cost of topping it up, but that should not happen too often.
Or are we hoping for too much?
