Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

I rent my 9 studio apartments to students on a bills included basis. During the first month of this project I would pass the building and witness open windows everywhere, knowing full well my boiler was burning gas at an exorbitant rate!
The next week I fitted Open Window Sensors and Smart Thermostatic Radiator controls (TRV’s)throughout the building MYSELF in one day, no drain down of the heating system required. I then went home and using my online dashboard set the TRV’s throughout the building by day/time/temperature.
This also was simple and quick. Now if a window is opened in one of the apartments the Sensor turns the radiator in that room down automatically. Each room cost me £75 which I recovered over the first few months through my gas bill savings. Smart eh?
