As gas and electricity tariffs continue to rise, energy experts have come up with a simple solution – Turn the thermostat one step backwards.
According to research by “HN” more and more people in the Flemish region of Belgium are reducing temperatures. Keep gas consumption and related costs between 21 and 20 degrees Celsius.
Opinion of Professor of Biomedical Sciences Luca Bowenza (Université Libre de Bruxelles), Keeping the temperature too low is not good for your health. “The room temperature is below 18 degrees Increases blood pressure And it’s especially dangerous for the elderly. “
Therefore, the ULB lecturer recommends lowering it to 19 degrees C. “This will help save 10 to 20 percent on energy consumption,” he says, adding that the average annual gas bill is around 4 3,400, which is possible. You will save almost 700 euros.
