Average apartment heating consumption

Low heat consumption means less potential for savings

Fig. 2 Estimated average apartment consumption.


The graph in the above figure is based on the following formula (Gram-Hanssen 2005):

Annual heating consumption = -2 577 kWH + (area in square meters * 119 kWH/square meter)

Example: apartment area in sqm = 100

Annual heating consumption (kWH) = -2 577 + (100 * 119) 
                         = -2 577 + 11 900 
                         = 9 323



In some cases it can be easier to use the formula instead of reading the graph. The results are only approximations, as the formula is based on the median of numerous calculations.
