Warnings from consumer associations
Marco Vignola ofNational Consumers Union remember that «there are various types of Apps. The most useful are those thanks to which we can control the thermostat, the boiler and other appliances while we are away from home. Others give you valuable advice, which in any case can also be found elsewhere, for example on the internet ». For the Codacons, if on the one hand “apps represent a modern tool that can really help consumers, especially and cut energy waste and consume more consciously and correctly”, on the other, “it is however necessary that such applications are not aimed at to push the user towards this or that electricity and gas supplier, or to promote energy companies with which they have commercial relations and from which they may take commissions in case of stipulation of contracts. It is also good to check, before downloading similar services, if there are any costs or subscriptions, if the version you install is a demo and if the free offer is for a limited period of time, to avoid running into unpleasant surprises ».
