Renters Failing To Look Into Alternative Energy

Since the decline of the UK housing market a growing number of people have looked towards renting rather than buying and who could blame them? Whilst this can save you a significant amount of money in the long-term, research has found that many renters are failing to switch energy suppliers and missing out on huge savings on their energy bills.
Consumer experts uSwitch found that over a third of tenants incorrectly believe that they are not allowed to change their energy supplier for fear of it upsetting their landlord. A third of tenants also see no point in switching as they have no intention of living within the property for the foreseeable future.
This has negative consequences for both tenant and landlord as both will miss out on valuable energy savings. The tenant may end up paying for more on their bills than they should be and the landlord may struggle to attract future tenants if they persist with windows that fail to supply the level of efficiency you would expect from a contemporary home.

What they should instead be doing is visiting a home improvement company such as Orion Windows who provide double glazing in Skipton and double glazing in Whitby.
Our windows will reduce the cost of energy bills for at least the next 20 years as that is their expected lifespan and they can improve energy efficiency massively in comparison to single glazed windows that are regularly subject to draughts and heat loss.
They look good too as they come with a stylish finish on a UPVC frame that is extremely pleasing on the eye and which needs very little looking after. A wipe down with a damp cloth now and again and your windows will be fully restored to their natural beauty, no paintbrush or paint required!
