Energy-saving tips

It is always a good idea to use less energy and water. With small, simple changes, you can acquire new and good habits that are good for both the climate - and your electricity bill.

General tips on home energy efficiency

Save energy in the kitchen

  • When boiling water, use a kettle or a saucepan with the lid on
  • Make sure the pots and pans are the same size as the hobs you are using
  • Allow the food to cool before putting it in the fridge/freezer
  • Thaw frozen food in the refrigerator instead of in the microwave

Save energy in the the bathroom

  • Turn off the water while brushing your teeth
  • Shower quickly and efficiently - turn off the water when soaping up
  • Report faults such as a dripping tap or leaking toilet to avoid unnecessary water loss

Save energy in the the laundry room

  • Air your clothes, wash only when necessary
  • Make sure the machine is full when washing, to optimize each laundry cycle
  • Don’t wash at an overly high temperature, 30–40 degrees is enough if clothes are only lightly soiled
  • If you have time, run the Eco program
  • Use a drying cabinet rather than a tumble dryer (your clothes will also last longer)
  • If you have space, dry your clothes on a drying rack at home
