As a homeowner, landlords have an important role to play in improving the energy efficiency of their properties, with future targets under MEES (Minimum Energy Efficiency Measures) to reach Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating B. This can be achieved via various means: addressing the heating efficiency through fabric of the property to ensure it is well insulated, the addition heating controls, adding renewable energy technologies for electricity such as solar panels or installing heat pumps for heating.
