Specialising in residential property since 1992, the Keatons staff have gained a knowledge of East London property that is second-to-none. Our expertise in estate agency, property technology, property investment and marketing has led to speaking engagements across the UK and around the world!
With National Energy Saving Week starting 17th January, the Keatons team have put their collective heads together and come up with a few top tips on how best to save money on your bills. Who better to help cut your energy costs?
“There’s a number of ways to save on your energy costs, but cutting fuel bills can be as simple as knowing in detail which appliances cost the most to run and ensuring that they are turned off at the switch wherever possible. Large items such as televisions, computers and lamps with high wattage bulbs still use around 10% of their usual energy even whilst on standby mode!”
Since the reopening of the city following COVID-19 restrictions, the rental market in London has boomed! If you’re thinking of investing in property, your number one priority should be keeping tenants happy and long-term. So what would our team suggest?
“Over the years, we’ve seen Developers invest in both new builds and also large-scale renovation projects. We really believe that an essential part of long term property management is ensuring that tenants are as happy as possible at all times. That’s why our team always advises that Investors install high quality double glazing wherever planning constraints allow. These are not only great for keeping in heat, but also a lot more effective at keeping out unwanted noise. Perfect for unwinding after a hard day at the office!”
Have the team got any other tips? You bet they have!
“Wasting water is terrible! Not only is the noise annoying to everyone, but a dripping tap can waste as much as 5,500 litres of water a year! Simple things, such as turning off the tap whilst brushing your teeth, can save you hundreds! Saving money and also doing your bit for the planet… what’s not to love?!”
