Turning down your thermostat

Another green measure you can take in your property to rent in Edinburgh is to prevent heat escaping by closing your curtains from windows and doors.

Save water

There are a number of ways through which you can utilize water in a more energy efficient way. Check regularly to ensure that your taps don’t leak, as a leaking tap per week waste’s water equivalent to a bath. Another tip is to switch from baths to showers. Moreover, appliances like washing machines and dishwasher use a lot of water. You must use these machines at a low temperature and only when there is a full load to wash.

Don’t leave appliances on standby

Switch off appliances from the main switch in your Edinburgh flats to rent as leaving them on standby means they are still using 80% of the energy. This way you can save 10% off your bills. Hence you must leave nothing on standby.


You must make a habit of turning off lights whenever you leave the room. Moreover, switch from regular bulbs to energy saving bulbs. They last longer and save big time.
