Through Home Truths, Better Renting has released an "Energy Efficiency Guide for Renters" We are launching this guide in draft form, in response to growing demand from a community of renters looking to improve their comfort and warmth at home this winter.
The guide outlines common issues renters experience in inefficient homes and provides suggestions for how to begin making improvements in your own home. It includes step-by-step instructions, suggested materials, and prices for a range of DIY energy efficiency projects. Each project included is renter-friendly: they are designed to be affordable, easy, and temporary.
As the guide is still in draft form, please help us improve it with any feedback you may have. Also, if you do try any of these projects, please send us photos - we’d love to include more pictures of renters making these changes themselves in the guide.
