Heat Meters for Landlords from LanTen are designed to assist landlords in both legacy sites and state of the art low carbon smart homes.
Energy bill payment shortfall exposes Landlords of Community Housing stock and Finance Directors to considerable mismatches between the cost of purchasing primary fuel and the recovery of this cost from individual tenants.
LanTen’s energy management solutions aim to reduce tariff payment shortfall, thereby recovering vital cash flow in a manner completely consistent with social landlords’ charters. Furthermore the metering structure can accommodate standing charge payments to cater for the non-tariff costs of operating the system.
Our metering system technology does not require any form of site network, internet provision or LAN. The metering equipment in each property is ‘stand-alone’ such that the system is fully flexible from the largest schemes down to individual units. The system is capable of operating in either pre-payment or post payment configurations and gives the landlord complete control to change any customer from pre to post pay at any time, remotely without entering the property.
