Well-being and environmental protection in harmony with each other
We have installed photovoltaics on the balconies and on the roofs of the apartments. As soon as the sun shines, part of the electricity is fed into the grid in a CO2-neutral way. You can use this optimally if you postpone larger consumptions (e.g. dishwasher) to the sun time.
Our apartments are well insulated, but we still use natural gas for heating. If you are out of the house for a longer period of time, we would like to ask you to lower the temperature 1 to 2 degrees.
To ensure that hot water comes out of the pipe promptly, we have a circulation pump. Hot water is needed mainly during the day. During this period, comfort is the main concern. At night, the pump runs less frequently and thus saves a lot of energy.
In Cologne, waste is separated into recyclables (green dot), paper and residual waste.
