In addition to rent, loan or mortgage payment, you will have to pay for electricity, heating and water.

You pay for your utilities according to the amount you use. There are meters on the property. Electricity is supplied by a private electricity company, while heating comes from a municipal or private heating plant. Large residential buildings may have their own heating plant. If you own your home, you will normally pay your water bill together with your property tax.

In Denmark, electricity, water and heating are expensive. This is because society wants to limit energy consumption in order to protect the environment.
