Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital – Landlord Action response9:55 AM, 3rd July 2019
About 2 weeks ago 69
I have a property that I rent out with all bills included. However much like other landlords i find the heating is left on coupled with windows left open and hefty bills.
At the moment I’m sprucing the property up and have installed thermoboards to rooms where there are exterior facing walls, to help insulate the property and was looking in to standard Thermostatic Radiator Valves.
I’ve seen the Inspire Home Automation Wireless Thermostat @ £190 and this looks promising in that it gives tenants some flexibility and provides a boost function. I foresee this reducing my bills slightly.
Regarding windows left open and heating on, I’ve seen a product by Danfoss which is a Thermostatic Radiator Valve which also has an “open window sensor” which if senses a window open, closes the valve immediately. This costs around £50 per valve and I’d fit to the radiators in the bedrooms only.
Has anyone had experience of using this TRV? or any like it?
Should I invest in both solutions, or perhaps one of them?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
