Domestic Heating Costs in France

Domestic heating costs in France are an important thing to think about during the coldest time of the year. It turns out that the heating bill is highest for people that use oil. Electricity is the next most expensive form of energy. The cheapest form of heating was wood. That did not cost a lot at all. France is more expensive than many countries in this area, as well as many others.

Key Takeaways:

  • A recent survey of carried out by independent energy consultants ‘Quelle Energie’ found average heating costs were €1,611 a year, a figure that varied by type of energy used – oil, electricity, gas, or wood.
  • The heating bill was highest for those who used oil, some 19% of households in the survey, whose costs averaged €1,927 a year.
  • The next most expensive form of energy source was electricity, whose heating costs averaged €1,726 per year.

“With temperatures freezing across Europe for most of last month, it is perhaps an opportune moment to reflect on just what it costs to heat a home in France.”
