Conscious use of hot water!
Hot water also gets its heat from the gas heating system. Therefore: shower instead of full bath. Max. 10 minutes. Turn off water when soaping up.

One last tip: change your gas supplier!

You can even save gas by switching your gas supplier. Maybe not in the consumption itself, but very much in the form of the upcoming gas costs. Because they can vary significantly depending on the provider! Our tip: Simply compare gas prices – and while you’re at it: Make sure it is an eco gas tariff. In this way, everyone benefits: You yourself save money by finding a favorable gas tariff with the gas tariff comparison, and nature has the certainty that it is being treated with care.
