Energy efficiency and insulation: how can I better insulate my property?

When it comes to saving energy, the first thing many owners think of is replacing their heating system. At the same time, you must not neglect the insulation of your property. Your heating system can be as modern as it is - if the windows are leaky or the facade insulation is inadequate, the heat escapes immediately and ensures poor energy efficiency. We explain simple tips on how to better insulate your property and effectively save on heating costs.

Increase energy efficiency with insulation

Good thermal insulation prevents cold air from entering your home and reliably stores heat. With facade insulation, you save around 19 percent on heating energy. If you have the windows and the roof insulated, you reduce energy consumption by up to eight percent. If you insulate the basement ceiling, the savings potential is around five percent. This will reduce your heating costs for a single-family house by several hundred euros per year. But insulation is worthwhile not only for the cold season. In summer, it prevents the rooms from heating up too quickly and ensures a comfortable indoor climate.

Many owners are hesitant about the cost of renovation – facade insulation, for example, costs over ten thousand euros. An energy consultant from our network will be happy to explain to you after what time the investment will pay off. Alternatively, even small measures help to reduce energy consumption.
