How to Save Energy

Airing and Heating:
Saving energy also means airing your rooms efficiently, since fresh, dry air heats up quicker. For this, please air your room for about 10 minutes every day. Whilst airing, the HEATING MUST BE TURNED OFF. Refrain from keeping the windows tilted (especially when the heating is turned on). This is an enormous waste of energy and harms the indoor climate.

Laundrey Room:
Only use the washing machines and tumble dryers when having filled them up fully. It is not economical to use the machines half-full. Choose the right programme in order not to wash for too long or at a too high temperature. In most cases, 30°C – 40°C is sufficient. After use, always turn off the machines.

Dishwasher:
Choose the adequate programme and use the ECO PROGRAMME. Only use the dishwasher when it is full. Glasses with labels (e.g. pesto glasses) are not allowed to be washed in the dishwasher. You are obligated to service the machine by regularly refilling the DISHWASHER SALT (NOT COOKING SALT) and cleaning it (especially the sieves).

Waste Separation:
Waste Separation is COMPULSORY and has to be carried out diligently. The bio-waste container, for instance, is most definitely the wrong place for residual waste. You also have to take care not to dispose of your bio-, metal- or glass-waste in a plastic bag. Additionally, it is important to REGULARLY take down the rubbish and not to just leave it outside of the apartment.

Cooler Units:
Please REGULARLY DEFROST freezers and fridges and do not keep them open for a longer period of time.

General Info:
You are obligated to take care of WIST inventory. This includes hygienic conditions in the kitchen and wiping away spilled water after having a shower.
Do not waste water by letting taps and showers run for an unnecessarily long period of time.
Please TURN OFF LIGHTS, computer and charging devices when not needed.
