Heating

Question

How many hours per day is your heating at home switched on? The owner told us to be careful with heating, otherwise we would have to pay a lot. What does "a lot" mean in this case?

J

3 hours, 5-8 at weekends.

 

> What does "a lot" mean

It means energy prices are horendously high, and a lot of Belgian homes have got inefficient insulation and older heaters that hark back to the days when gas and oil were a lot cheaper.

 

You should ask to see the previous bills when you rent a place.
