Cut out the hassle around hot water and heating issues and help your tenants reduce their gas bills by up to 40% and their carbon emissions by up to 38% – says Chris Adcock, MD, Hassle Free Boilers, a division of Ecovision, a specialist in sustainable and renewable energy.
It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced landlord with several rental properties or if you have just a single tenant, or perhaps even a small holiday let property, the call you don’t want to receive is the one from your tenant saying that they have no hot water or heating.
If you have recently bought a buy-to-let property for the first time you may well have purchased an old gas boiler which you are now hoping will not let you or, more importantly, your tenant down.
If you have a large portfolio of properties, you might be reflecting on how much you are paying for the annual service and associated repairs for each and every one of your gas boilers. Have you ever calculated how much time and money you are spending dealing with and arranging for the repair of boiler and hot water and heating system problems? How many of your boilers are coming up to their ‘sell by’ date? There is no question that old boilers are costing you money.
Not only do old boilers cost money, they don’t do very much at all to help the environment. By replacing an old boiler with a new energy efficient ‘A’ rated boiler you can reduce your tenants’ carbon emission by up to 38%. Being able to advertise your rental property as having an energy efficient boiler may well be extremely attractive to potential tenants who already understand the need to help the environment.
But probably the most important reason for installing a new boiler, especially for your potential tenants, is the ability to show that your rental property is fitted with a top of the range, energy efficient boiler that will help them reduce their gas usage and therefore their gas bill by up to 40%. With no end in sight to every increasing energy prices a new boiler may well play a part in you quickly letting your property.
I can imagine many of you reading this and wringing your hands and thinking that clearly I don’t understand just how difficult it can be to find the initial upfront cost of replacing an old boiler. Well, here’s an answer you may not yet be aware of.
Initiatives are available which allow landlords to replace their old boilers with no upfront cost whatsoever. It is possible to have a top of the range Vaillant ecoTec boiler supplied and installed at no charge to landlords who enter into a 12 year (the average life of a boiler) warranty, maintenance and service plan which covers not just the boiler but the property’s entire hot water and heating system. The plan includes:
- Annual servicing including gas testing
- 24/7 callout cover 365 days a year
- Breakdown cover including parts and labour
- All work carried out by Gas Safe registered engineers
- 12 year guarantee
- Free Vaillant ecoTec boiler fully installed with thermostatic radiator valves, magnetic filter and controls as required
- Full customer care support and emergency contact number
So you really can help cut out the hassle of dealing with your tenants’ boiler, hot water and heating issues all at the same time by taking out Hassle Free Boiler plans for your rental properties. In addition you can help your tenants help the environment and reduce their energy costs significantly – must be a good reason for those renting to become or remain a tenant of yours!
