What are Energy Efficiency Certificates? Those green, yellow and red bars show the energy efficiency of a home.
Spanish and community regulations require that homes, especially new construction properties, have energy certificates in all type of buildings. It is very useful information that will influence your next real estate investment for sure.
This energy efficiency study evaluates the characteristics of the construction, housing facilities and installations in which normally problemas arise such as leakage, the already known humidity in windows, ceilings and under floors, which entails a higher electricity consumption.
Knowing the conflicting points, you can act on them to eliminate problems and reduce the use of air conditioning facilities or ask yourself if it is a home that you would buy if you knew that it had a bad Energy Efficiency rating.
Less energy consumption equals more savings. Some simple math that we all like. So it is good to buy a home with a good energy consumption rating.
It is In many cases, the cost of carrying out the reforms or improvements that makes it profitable by the savings generated, and the more time passes, the greater the savings since the price of energy does not stop rising. Since is our future main fuel.
Including the energy rating label of our home or commercial premises in a real estate advert will allow you to compare between the most efficient properties and those that are not so efficient. And if your home is not the most efficient, it does not matter if there are always worse or perhaps will make you consider a small reform that will just add even more value to your current property price.
The Government of Spain, in the current Housing Plan, establishes aid and subsidies in order to carry out reforms and rehabilitations aimed at improving the energy rating, reducing demand and energy consumption. In some cases, such aid can be around 50 euros per square meter.
If you choose a home with an A rating, you are doing your health a favor. Imagine a house where heating is not necessary during the winter or using the air conditioning in the summer, it is a great health benefit.
The reduction of energy consumption makes it possible to reduce the consumption of many other natural resources, thereby helping to conserve all those places with which we dream of traveling, green forests, crystalline waterfalls, habitats with unique animals that we appreciate so much and of which we are all responsible, so that many future generations can enjoy the same soil that we are enjoying today.
