Guide to understanding energy efficiency and advising tenants
Managing energy use is a key issue for individuals and organisations. This course provides details of efficient use of energy in the home and on how this learning can be passed on to residents and others.
Benefits of the training
Inefficient energy use can cost households hundreds each year that could be saved through better understanding of systems and their controls. This course demonstrates to tenants how to save money through more efficient energy management like:
Turning off appliances rather than leaving on stand by
Using more energy efficient white goods
Replacing existing light bulbs with energy efficient alternatives
The cost of running items such as plasma TVs and tumble dryers and alternatives now available.
Candidates will learn how to measure the energy use of appliances; how to manage heating systems and how to find help for those in fuel poverty. In particular they will gain an understanding of how to pass on their knowledge to residents and encourage them to take action to save money on energy costs.
They will also gain information on climate change and the actions being taken worldwide to improve energy efficiency.
Who is it for?
This course is for housing staff who advise residents or deal with their queries and those who visit or inspect properties. It can also benefit people looking to expand their technical knowledge.
