Top 5 tips for saving

Turning down your heating for one degree saves about six percent of energy. Simply reduce the room temperature from 21 to 20 degrees, for instance.

Washing hands with cold water, showering instead of taking a bath, and water-saving shower heads or tap aerators help to save hot water and to reduce costs.

Stand-by operation of electrical devices is practical, but also expensive. Therefore, it is better to connect your TV, receiver, Wi-Fi router and the like to a power strip that can be switched off when not needed.

Wash your clothes at a low temperature 830 to 40 degrees) and use economy programmes. If possible, choose the eco-mode for the dishwasher as well. This saves water and energy.

Refrigerators are often set too cold. 7 °C inside and -18 °C in the freezer compartment are generally quite sufficient. Every degree less costs 10 % more energy.
