According to the portal “Super Express”, the European Commission is trying to deal with the energy crisis. One of the ways is to lower the temperature in the rooms and limit it to 19 degrees Celsius. Failure to comply with this requirement would be severely punished. Not only fines would be involved.

High temperature penalty?

The European Commission has for some time been encouraging Member States and their citizens to limit indoor temperatures to 19 degrees in winter. This is to help Europe survive the energy crisis. Some countries in the European Union have already decided to introduce solutions limiting energy consumption.

This is the case, inter alia, in Spain, which indicated that in summer the temperatures in commercial, tourist and cultural squares must not be lower than 27 degrees. In winter, it must not be warmer than 19 degrees.

The Swiss have decided to go a step further and are encouraging their residents to lower the temperature in their homes. Failure to do so is punishable by up to three years' imprisonment.
