How to save energy – suggestions to avoid too high bills

Ciao Renter,
this post is about the impact of the energy crisis on the gas and electricity bills.
.
As you can imagine, offering all inclusive prices in this situation becomes more and more challenging.
.
Therefore the landlords may set some limits in the bills, on the basis of the previous ones.
The exceeded amount will be deducted from the deposit.
.
The landlords will check constantly the bills (they are usually bi-monthly *) so you can promptly be informed about an eventual excessive usage, avoiding an unexpected notice at the checkout, when your security deposit should be refunded.
:

✳️ How not to risk to use too much energy and have too high bills?

▶️ Saving energy, following the new rules we have in Italy:
.
– keep max 19°C (66 Fahrenheit) in the day (autonomous heating) or radiators on “2” (central heating),
– the heating can work max 13 hours/day.
.

Some other recommendation:

– turn on the electrical water heater only when it’s needed,
– don’t use the AC as dehumidifier or heating in the winter (usually there are the radiators),
– use the AC in the summer only when it’s at least 30°C and possibly with dehumidifier mode,
– use the electrical appliances (washing machine, dishwasher, dryer…) before 7 am and after 7 pm, or on Saturday-Sunday,
– always turn off all the lights when you are not at home (and turn on only the one in the room you are),
– use the oven only when it’s really needed.
.

🎅🏻🎄 If you are leaving for Christmas break (or other holidays), please:

– Inform us about the dates you’ll be away (autonomous heating) or turn the radiators on “1” (central heating)
– turn off the water heater.
.
.

📎 Most of them aren’t “new rules”, actually, it’s simply how everybody should always behave at home!

.
* As the bills are usually bi-monthly in Italy, it can happen the security deposit can’t be refunded within 2 weeks after the checkout, because the landlord needs to wait the bills are issued to make the calculation.
