From next October i radiators they will be turned on for an hour less per day and will score one degree less: no more 20 ° C but 19 ° C. Not just for private houses with central heating, but also for public buildings. The news is filtered by ministerial sources and, according to what is reported Adnkronos, was confirmed by the Minister of Ecological Transition Roberto Cingolani (pictured), after having been illustrated by the same minister to government colleagues as part of the information on the gas savings plan for the next few months
In some areas of the country, those where the climate is milder, the degrees less for radiators could drop down to two. In the same areas it could be possible to keep them on two hours less than in previous years. In this case, however, it would be a suggestion for citizens, rather than a rule. With measures of minimum temperature reduction, using alternative fuels for limited periods and optimizing the use of energy, between 3 and 6 billion cubic meters of gas could be saved in a year “, says the Mite.
