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.


  • Switch to LED and low-energy lamps
  • Turn off the lights when you leave the room
  • Turn off the TV, computer, and electronics that are not in use - avoid standby mode
  • Unplug chargers that are not in use
  • Multiple sockets with a circuit-breaker make it easy to turn off several devices and chargers at once

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

In 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.

In the laundry room

  • Air your clothes, wash only when necessary
  • Make sure the machine is full when washing
  • 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
