Efficient heating

Icons ZIB

Energy is very expensive in Germany. You can save on heating costs and prevent high heating payments. Here are a few tips:

  • Don’t leave the windows tilted open

    It is especially important not to leave your windows tilted open for long periods of time. Instead, you should open them completely a few times a day to let in fresh air.

    Another typical mistake is turning the heating off completely during the day and then heating very drastically in the evenings.

  • The lower the temperature, the lower your heating costs

    In your living room, children’s bedroom or bathroom, usually 20 or 21 degrees will be a comfortable temperature. For the kitchen, 18 to 20 degrees should be enough, and in your bedroom 17 to 19 degrees.

  • Do not put clothing on the heating units!

  • Do not place furniture in front of the heating units!
