The government calls for energy saving against Russia. It doesn’t have to mean freezing for peace. But there are many tips on how to reduce gas and oil consumption.
Dhe first step towards saving energy is doing without. If you turn down the heating, leave the car at home or don’t switch on the dryer, you reduce your own consumption – and save money in view of the high energy prices. Due to the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine, these efforts are becoming more important: In order to get away from Russian energy supplies, the government is calling for energy saving. “Every kilowatt hour saved helps,” said Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck (Greens) in early April when he announced the early warning level in the gas emergency plan. Who saves, help Germany and Ukraine.
Put on a jumper, put on slippers, throw the blanket around: your own four walls should be less warm, but not too cold either. According to estimates, every degree of room temperature less reduces energy consumption by six percent. According to the real estate association GDW, 20 to 22 degrees are sufficient during the heating period. At night, the temperature can be lower, dropping to 16-17 degrees. The radiators themselves should be free, since curtains and furniture do not let heat into the room. For ventilation, it is clear that the valves should be closed, otherwise the heating will heat out the window. More efficient than tilted windows is forced airing several times a day for a maximum of five minutes in frosty weather or ten to 15 minutes between seasons. Especially before sleeping and after getting up, it should be ventilated to prevent moisture.
