Less energy for airing, cooking and washing

In order to take care of the environment on a daily basis, no extreme restrictions are necessary. Even small changes in behavior have an impact, and not just on the environment. After all, saving energy also has a positive impact on your wallet. How to reduce energy consumption for heating, water or electricity.

Energy-efficient heating and ventilation

Multiple venting instead of constant venting with an angled window means less unnecessary heat is lost. A temperature of 20-23 degrees is recommended for living rooms and children’s rooms. In the adult room, the heating can also be set lower. For each additional degree of ambient temperature above 20 degrees Celsius, heating energy consumption increases by about six percent.

A constant temperature also makes more sense than turning the heat down for a short absence and then turning it back on. Strong fluctuations consume a lot of energy and incur costs accordingly.

Save in the kitchen

For dishes that can be prepared both in the oven and in a pan, preparation on the hob is preferable. The stove uses a fifth less energy than the oven. Pans should match the size of the cooker. Pans that are too small on a hob that is too large waste heat unnecessarily.
