Resource-saving heating: you have the temperature under control yourself

The heating season has started. According to forecasts, this year winter will be particularly expensive due to high energy prices. If you want to save resources and thus money, you have at least the temperature controller in your own hands. A reduction in room temperature by 1 ° C lowers heating costs by up to 6%. "Night setback and thermostatic valves save up to 10% on heating costs", calculates DIE UMWELTBERATUNG.

The institution of Die Wiener Volkshochschulen GmbH recommends the use of thermostats and, depending on individual needs, the following temperature settings:

  • Anteroom: 14-17 ° C
  • Bedroom: 16-18 ° C
  • Children's room: 18-21 ° C
  • Living room: 20-22 ° C
  • Bath: 20-24 ° C

Further information and tips are available in free information folder.
