The “new” twenties may not have been as expected for us Norwegians, with a pandemic spreading, the prospect of future food crises and now high electricity prices.
By now, we should be able to say that we have lived in a rising tide for nearly three decades: good finances and prosperity for the vast majority have characterized our daily lives, with trips south, underfloor heating in the off-wall car park and larger homes as good evidence. on it. The bathrooms have become living rooms and showers are like stepping out of the rainforest where you can stand in a dripping but well heated ‘rain shower’ – without thinking about its costs – because along with the increased convenience of everyday life, electricity prices have also historically been low. In 2020, electricity prices were the lowest since 2002, according to Statistics Norway (SSB).

New electricity price records are now reported almost daily, and E24 He writes that a ten-minute shower on Monday this week costs up to 26 kroner.
With high electricity prices making even the most sane and affluent of us easier to look back, it’s not easy to enjoy a handy shower in our perfectly decorated bathroom. Was that really the case after a severe pandemic year?
When the cold at the same time is about to complete Across the country, and so many of us rely on electricity to heat our homes, it’s easy to worry about how much our next electric bill will actually cost.
But there is hope – even for the most power-hungry of us. But then we must draw inspiration from earlier and older generations, who have integrated electricity savings into their daily lives.
Here are three tips that will break some luxury into everyday life – but also contribute to reducing your electricity consumption. And remember – room heating and hot water have the biggest impact on your electric bill, according to Innova:
1. Take shorter baths
“Do not spend a lot of time in the bathroom!! My father invited the children to us as soon as we set foot in the shower room. The goal was to provide hot water – not only because the hot water tank was small, but because it was expensive to waste a lot of hot water.
Most of us know the trick, though it’s not always tempting: Turn off the water while you’re soaping yourself and shampooing in your hair. And maybe you don’t need to shower as fully as you normally do, or fall head over heels for an occasional hair wash?
2. Close the doors and lower the temperature
Another trick that might work particularly well in older homes with a few solutions and open doors between each room is to heat up the room you’re actually in – and dramatically reduce heat in rooms you rarely or don’t use often.
You can also lower the temperature around the house when you go out, and turn it on again when you come back. After all, all the money goes. And if you find it a little chilly while the temperature is rising again, here’s one last tip to help you:

3. Dress up
Wearing slippers, fleece underwear and a knitted sweater at home: Do you really need to be able to wear a T-shirt in Norway – in December? If you want to save energy, the answer is no. If you wear warm clothes, you can tolerate indoor temperatures that are a few degrees lower. Have you ever seen your grandparents walking around in short sleeves (not to mention ankle socks…) indoors for the everyday winter?
