Energy saving hacks
Turn of all redundant lights and also turn them off while leaving the apartment. Also a lot of difference does the use of the energy saving light bulbs – the best are LED´s type ones.
Control the temperature in your apartment with a thermometer that indicates you precisely if it´s necessary to warm your room up or it´s over heated. Try to avoid solving this problem by opening the windows. Also if you need to get some fresh air in the morning or during the day turn down the heaters. As in case of the lights, don´t leave the heaters on while you are not at home or leave them at minimum.
Air condition is an awesome device that mainly cools down the room but also it can heat it up. But the electricity consumption increases plenty and especially in winter it may become very expensive to use it as a source of heat.
