Don’t waste heat
Savings: The monetary savings depend on the size of the space and how much you lower the temperature. A good rule of thumb is that one degree in temperature is equivalent to 5% in heating costs.
Remember this: You may not notice that you’re heating an empty space unnecessarily. Move small objects that require a higher temperature into your home and keep the storeroom cooler.
Reducing your carbon footprint: Lowering the temperature of a 3 m2 storeroom by five degrees reduces your carbon footprint by about 0.5% per year. If a million Finns did this, it would save the equivalent of 4,000 carbon footprints.
