Energy Efficiency Guide for Renters

The cover page from the energy efficiency guide for renters

This guide has been written with consideration of the issues which affect people who rent. We recognise renters currently do not have rights to make certain modifications at home, and even when they do, the threat of rent-increases and/or eviction can deter tenants from making requests of their landlord or real-estate agent.

All energy efficiency projects included in this guide have been chosen because they can be installed temporarily, many do not require landlord permission, and - most importantly - renters can do these projects themselves.
