Tips for your heating system

  • Stick radiator foil behind radiators. Radiator foil will save you up to €50 a year.
  • Make sure furniture is not too close to the radiator. 
  • Vent the radiator and your heating will work better and save gas.
  • Install a radiator fan to heat your home quickly. This will save you up to €250 a year.
  • Heat only the rooms you use. Turn off the heating in the bedroom. 
  • Set your central heating boiler to 60°C instead of 80°C for less gas consumption (zetmop60.co.uk).
  • Curtains in front of radiators? Shorten them so the heat is not lost.
  • Provide good ventilation. This is not only important for your health but it also helps to heat the room better. Airing briefly in the morning will make your room warm up faster.
  • Turn off the heating at night or at 15 degrees and at 19 degrees during the day. This way your home is not heated unnecessarily at night.

Tips for lighting

  • Replace all your bulbs with LED bulbs. Replacing 10 bulbs will already save you up to €90.
  • Place dimmers on your lamps.
  • Opt for a solar-powered outdoor lamp.
  • Turn off lights in rooms where you are not, that way lamps do not burn unnecessarily.

Tips for the kitchen

  • Cup of tea? Don't put more water in the kettle than necessary.
  • Do the dishes in a tub instead of under the running tap.
  • Place a water-saving perlator on your faucet. This will save you €40 a year.
  • After making coffee, do not forget to turn off the machine.
  • Check the temperature of the refrigerator (4°C) and freezer (-18°C).
  • Let your food cool before putting it in the refrigerator and freezer.
  • Defrost your freezer regularly against ice buildup.
