Really Trapped in the Heat? Accounting for Occupants’ Efforts in Panel Apartment Blocks – Publication by János Balázs Kocsis

2022-10-10 15:44:36

The publication co-authored by János Balázs Kocsis was published in the Periodica Polytechnica Social and Management Sciences.

This paper aims to account for the role of occupants’ efforts in reducing the space-heating costs of panel apartments linked to district heating systems. We present the findings of a questionnaire survey among residents of North-West Budapest (Hungary). Our results show that the roles of efforts are limited in the panel housing context, but wider access to appropriate information on those (limited) opportunities could significantly alleviate the burden on households trapped in an inadequate space heating regime.
