Good bye 2021 hello 2022
A difficult year for many to say the least and yet my busiest to date, since I started Assess Energy Solutions UK 5 years ago, has gone from strength to strength.
House sales and the rental markets were both very buoyant throughout the year without the usual seasonal dips around holiday times. This was driven by a number of factors, not least, Covid 19.
The requests for assessments and advice came in daily, whether through the misfortune of having to pack up a business due to lockdown and the commercial property changing hands, the stamp duty holiday promoting house sales or people weren’t spending money on holidays and took the opportunity to seek bigger homes, often in the country with more space to live, along with the increased working from home negating the need to live and work in a city or town.
One thing is certain; the internationally excepted global warming predictions and COP 26 have resulted in home owners, landlords and commercial property owners all asking 'what can I do to make my property more energy efficient?' To some extent this is driven by the governments Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) requiring all rental properties to be at least a E or better. However owners are genuinely wondering what can they do to lower energy bills, especially with climbing gas, oil and electricity costs.
