How to Reduce Utility Costs

Automating elements of your home and tapping into green energy sources aren’t the only ways to reduce utility costs in your short term rentals. With utility expense management in place, you can establish regular audits that help catch and rectify any errors before they become an added cost to you.

Routine utility data screenings also help identify areas of improvement so you can address ways to reduce energy consumption and save money on your energy bills, such as:

Throughout Utah, we see all sorts of weather that can affect energy consumption; from the cool, crisp air in Park City to the dry, warm air in St. George, your home needs to perform well in order for your rental to turn a profit.

Other ways to go green in your short term rentals include:

changing out old lightbulbs for new LED bulbs

Swapping fluorescent lights out for LEDs

Blackout curtains save energy

Swapping fluorescent lights out for LEDs

Changing the furnace filter

Replace furnace filters routinely

Use water efficient fixtures

Upgrade to energy-efficient appliances and water fixtures

Upgrading to Energy Star appliances alone can save you 10-50% in energy consumption, which results in lower utility invoices for you, and more money in your pocket.

With assistance from Doorstep for rental management, you can avoid the time consuming job of analyzing every bill and figuring out where the energy drains are.

Maintaining Billing Compliance

Utility billing is somewhat protected by federal and state laws, which means your information cannot be shared with just anyone. Doorstep ensures compliance with utility companies so there’s never a disruption of communication or service. When you have properties throughout Utah, it can be a relief to have someone handle the various municipal regulations.

Maintaining Utility Compliance

In addition to following regulations regarding data security, the utilities themselves are regulated. Guests in your short-term rental need to have access to safe, reliable energy and water at all times. Having a partner on your side who can understand the complex industry standards, laws, and rules means you can successfully maintain utility compliance for all your short term rental properties.

Utility management software offers a convenient solution for ever-changing compliance regulations; they are designed to not only store information that can be accessed at any time, but they can be designed to automate alerts for non-compliance issues.
