Saving energy at home
By reducing your energy consumption you can save both nature and money. With the right solutions, it’s easy!
- The annual heat consumption is 65-75% for heating and 25-35% for warm water. As a tenant, you have a key role in influencing heat consumption of the house and the amount of the heat bills.
- The ecologically ideal room temperature is 21 ° C.
- Ventilate your home with fast cross-draught to ensure efficient air exchange and minimize loss of warmth.
- A suitable temperature for the refrigerator is +5 ° C and in the freezer –18 ° C. A temperature that is too cold increases unnecessary energy consumption.
- When using a dishwasher, don’t rinse the dishes before putting them in the machine. You can remove food residues with a scraper or a piece of paper. Only use the machine when it’s full, and fill the machine systemically.
- Turn off the power (including standby) of all electronic entertainment devices when you are not using them. An electrical appliance in standby mode can consume as much energy as continuous use of the device.
- Always turn off the lamps if you don’t need light. Fluorescent lamps should be turned off when no one is in the room for at least 10 minutes.
- Never run hot water for no reason.
