Channelling your energy

There’s plenty of practical hints and tips for tenants on our website. 

Information for tenants

There’s also a wealth of information on other government websites. If you’d like to know more about how you can save money, energy and make your home warmer, drier and healthier check out the Gen Less website from our friends at EECA.(external link)

It includes extensive resources and guides from choosing an energy efficient heater to suit your space, through to how to keep the air fresh inside your house, and even how to save and use hot water more effectively.

Building a healthy relationship

If in doubt about what you can do yourself it’s always worth having a chat with your landlord.

Both tenants and landlords have responsibilities for keeping the property in good condition.

Building a healthy relationship with your landlord might just be the best way to create that healthy rental feeling in your home.
