I question if a tenant would bother worrying about saving you money.
That is probably true for many tenants, as clueless is as clueless does. However, that opinion requires an ALL-OR-NOTHING approach. A building owner of a quality tenancy would use an outdoor controller as the primary means of energy savings, leaving the boiler water temperature slightly higher than necessary. The TRV would be the final adjustment for the comfort temperature of the tenant. Even if the tenant ran the TRV up to the maximum temperature, opening the window to cool it off would make the room cold because the water temperature would be limited to perhaps allow an 80F room temperature at most.
If we are talking about public housing for the clueless, I would not bother with TRV's either.
