Electricity, Heating and Water

In Denmark electricity and heating as well as water are quite expensive. We therefore ask you to turn off the light and electrical appliances (i.e. power adaptors for computers, cell phones etc.) when you are not using them. When you shower, try to keep it short, both for the sake of the other tenants, but also because heating, as mentioned, is expensive. In addition to keeping cost down for all; we would like for our tenants to contribute to a greener and more sustainable environment.

If your heating is not working, contact the inspector at your residence and he/she will arrange for it to be fixed. Details regarding inspector etc can be found under the specific residence. You should be aware that it is quite common in Denmark for the housing administrators to turn off the central heating from April to October. There will of course still be hot water.
