Germany's largest real estate group Vonovia wants to lower the flow temperature of the gas central heating at night to reduce gas consumption.

The company announced that the power would be reduced between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. so that 17 degrees could still be reached in the rooms.

During the day it will be heated as usual.

The hot water supply is not affected by this step.

There are no restrictions on showering or bathing.

According to the company, the heating temperature should be changed as part of the routine maintenance of the heating systems before the start of the heating season.

In a notice for tenants, Vonovia emphasized that with this step, as a responsible landlord, the company wanted to help save gas and limit heating costs.

The night reduction would save up to eight percent of the heating effort.

Vonovia owns more than 550,000 apartments in Germany, Sweden and Austria.

There are also around 72,500 managed apartments.
